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.”

  1. PLEASE speak out. Don’t let someone like Limbaugh take a place of honor. Tax dollars may not pay for the statue (who does by the way?) But tax dollars pay for the building it will be housed in, the staff that cleans it and protects it, the electricity that lights it and any and all maintenance. Limbaugh has come to represent the problem with this country. Regardless of what side of the aisle you are on, the truth is he has made hate, racism, misogyny, anti-Semtism all a part of the national conversation. Just read the responses to this post….. Visit our site and help out, a little or a lot and lets rid the hate from our national rhetoric:

    He is a thoroughly disgraceful man, and we do not need his bust taking up space in the Peoples’ property. A man who dishonors himself, deserves NO HONOR.!
