Wisconsin Senate approves Limbaugh resolution, Dems object
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republicans who control the state Senate have passed a resolution honoring conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Republicans introduced the resolution at the end of a floor session Tuesday, sending Democrats into an outrage.
Minority Leader Janet Bewley accused the GOP of introducing the resolution to “tick” Democrats off.
Sen. LaTonya Johnson, a Black Democrat from Milwaukee, read a list of Limbaugh quotes disparaging former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama. She called him a homophobe and a racist.
Johnson tried to introduce a resolution recognizing February as Black History Month but Republicans killed it.
