News surfaced Monday that radio commentator Rush Limbaugh is to be inducted this year in the Hall of Famous Missourians at the Missouri state Capitol. Now, Democrats in the Missouri House of Representatives have sent a letter to House Speaker Steven Tilley asking that the plans to induct Limbaugh be "abandoned."

The letter says that "Fame alone has never been considered sufficient to earn someone a place in the Hall of Famous Missourians" and that, if that were the case, "outlaws Frank and Jesse James  - two of the most famous Missourians of all time - would have been inducted long ago."

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh will be inducted this year into the Hall of Famous Missourians. The news comes as the conservative commentator is under fire for comments he made on his nationally-syndicated show last week.
