Thank you so much for your email – it was a joy to hear from you, even if you don’t live in my district. I am just thrilled!It means a lot that you took the time to find me and write about this horrendous anti-woman agenda that has taken hold of our state legislatures. As you can tell, we progressive women legislators have had enough. I am COMMITTED to keep at this fight with my colleagues all over the country but we need people like you, encouraging us on.I ask a favor - Can you help us out in Missouri by signing the following petition? Over 20,000 have to date and we need Speaker Tilley’s office bombarded.A Rush Limbaugh Statue in the Missouri Capitol? No. Freaking. Way.You’re not going believe this: Missouri House Speaker Steve Tilley is planning to honor Rush Limbaugh in the Missouri Capitol’s “Hall of Famous Missourians” this year.
Tilley's response to the media today: “I’m sure there are people who are not fans of Rush Limbaugh, but I’m not one of them and I get to make the decision.”Please help us STOP this nonsense by signing a petition to Speaker Tilley, Gov. Nixon and other legislators –http://progressmissouri.org/norush AND by calling Speaker Tilley’s office – 573.751.1488.Sincerely,Rep.

Help Missouri Rep. Stacey Newman stop the Rush Limbaugh Statue
Missouri Representative Stacey Newman and a number of her colleagues co-sponsored an anti-vasectomy bill in the state legislature to combat the anti-women legislation being proposed by the GOP. We wrote to applaud her work, and received this response, and request, to help stop the House Speaker Steve Tilley from erecting a Rush Limbaugh State in the Capitol. Please see her message below and help fight this GOP/Conservative nonsense?
