Bush nominates Limbaugh Jr. for federal court St. Louis Business Journal


Missouri Supreme Court Judge Stephen Limbaugh Jr. was nominated by President Bush on Thursday to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Limbaugh Jr. has served on the Missouri Supreme Court since August 1992. His father, Stephen Limbaugh Sr., is a Senior U.S. District Judge in St. Louis.

Limbaugh Jr. has also served on the 32nd Judicial Circuit of Missouri, as a prosecuting attorney in Cape Girardeau County and a partner in a private practice. He is the cousin of prominent radio commentator Rush Limbaugh.

Only the president has the authority to formally nominate candidates for federal posts, like judgeships, to the U.S. Senate for confirmation.

7. They're related.
I remember a few years back, this guy made some outrageous right-wing ruling, and the question came up. He is related to Rush both in blood and idiocy.

9. Never understood that stupid line.....
"on loan from God" would imply that God wanted him back. And I doubt that very much. :evilgrin:
