ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Governor Jay Nixon is weighing in on the Rush Limbaugh controversy.  The Governor in St. Louis told KMOX he doesn’t think Limbaugh should be added to the Missouri Hall of Fame in the capitol.  Gov. Nixon said only those who have already passed-on should be honored.

“To me, the model of folks like Walt Disney who did incredible things, who passed on, and it’s important to note the body work of their life.  Black Jack Pershing led the fight of our expeditionary forces, folks like that.” said Gov. Nixon.

Nixon says Limbaugh’s recent comments that got him in trouble were “demeaning and showed no sensitivity.”
