(KMOV)--The National Organization for Women is among those ticked off at Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley for planning to put a bust of conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh in the Hall of Famous Missourians in the state capitol.

So they've decided to have a little fun with a rally to draw attention to their displeasure.

They're urging anyone who agrees with them to show up at the capitol rotunda at 6pm Monday carrying as many toilet paper rolls as they can.  Then they'll walk over to the speaker's office and urge him to "flush Rush."

I talked to the Missouri NOW Chapter President Jamie Tomek about this approach.  She says it's a serious issue but bringing attention to it in a light-hearted way is the way they want to go with it.

Tomek says if Tilley is there and willing, they will bring the toilet paper into his office.  Otherwise they will leave it at the door.

Tilley has said he wants to honor Limbaugh as a Missourian who has become perhaps the most famous and successful radio talk show host in the country.  Tilley says being a famous Missourian doesn't mean you have to be a beloved Missourian.
