Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh poses with a bust in his likeness during a secretive ceremony inducting him into the Hall of Famous Missourians on May 14 in the state Capitol in Jefferson City. The bust was displayed Monday outside the House chambers in the Capitol.
JEFFERSON CITY — The bust of radio host Rush Limbaugh is on display at the Missouri Capitol with fellow members of the Hall of Famous Missourians.
Limbaugh's bust was positioned Monday near the doors to the House chamber, across the corridor from the bust of a fellow southeastern Missourian, former Democratic Gov. Warren Hearnes.
The induction of the conservative talk show icon has prompted controversy. Limbaugh was honored during a ceremony last week at the Capitol that was open to reporters but not to the general public. House Democrats sought to prevent the bust from being displayed in the Capitol rotunda.
Several dozen people have been chosen for the Hall of Famous Missourians, generally by House speakers. Others include President Harry Truman, Walt Disney, George Washington Carver and Stan Musial.
