A Call for Gov. Perry to Revoke Limbaugh’s “Honorary Texan” Status (Radio Interview)

Progress Texas Executive Director Matt Glazer discussed the Rush Limbaugh controversy and our petition asking Governor Rick Perry to revoke Limbaugh's status as an "Honorary Texan" with Scott Braddock on News 92 FM this morning.

From Scott Braddock's blog:

While more advertisers abandon the Rush Limbaugh Show, there’s a push now in Texas to revoke his “Honorary Texan” status. Gov. Perry honored Limbaugh during an event in Houston a couple years ago.

Now that Limbaugh is caught up in a controversy over birth control and some ugly language he used against a college student, some are saying “Texans, even honorary ones, don’t act that way.”

Matt Glazer with Progress Texas says more than 3,000 Texans have signed their petition since Friday.
