JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A women's rights group has delivered more than 500 rolls of toilet paper to the office of Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley to protest his selection of Rush Limbaugh for induction into the Hall of Famous Missourians.
Members of the state chapter of the National Organization for Women protested briefly at the Capitol on Monday. They said the toilet paper was part of a "Flush Rush" campaign aimed at getting Tilley to change his decision to honor the conservative talk show host, who's from southeastern Missouri.
Tilley's choice Limbaugh for the place of honor in the Capitol became public weeks ago, just as national outrage erupted over Limbaugh's reference to a law student as a "slut" and "prostitute."
Tilley says he plans to donate the toilet paper to homeless shelters and charities.
