Missouri (The Gaslamp Post) – Hey Missouri, guess what you guys got to pay for!  Last Thursday, the Missouri House announced that they had ok’d $1,100 to be used to install a security camera, watching over the bust of talk radio host, Rush Limbaugh.

Mr. Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians on May 14, 2012, in a closed-door meeting.  His bust was placed in the state capital, in Jefferson City, alongside those of other famous Missourians.  The difference between the busts of President Harry Truman, Walt Disney, former Cardinals baseball star Stan Musial, and that of Mr. Limbaugh’s, is that only his has a camera on it.

According to House Clerk Adam Crumbliss, the camera in the state capital was necessary because of fears that the bust would be vandalized.  The bronze bust of Mr. Limbaugh reportedly went on display Friday before last.
