An update on the ever-evolving Rush Bust story. The latest evolution is that Speaker Tilley "has no idea" whether or not the Rush Bust is in the capitol.
First, the sculptor blogged that he was bringing both the Dred Scott and Rush Limbaugh busts.
Then he edited his blog to say he was only bringing the Dred Scott bust, that not before the capitol started buzzing with news that the Rush bust was en route.
In answer to an inquiry by the Post Dispatch, Speaker Tilley's office claimed that only the the Dred Scott bust was on its way to the Capitol today.
Now, finally, Speaker Tilley himself has chimed in on the fracas saying that he "has no idea" whether the sculptor brought both busts.
The takeaway from this hullabaloo? Even being one of the most powerful men in the legislature, Speaker Tilley has no clue what's going on in his own House. Par for the course, I guess.
