Head of Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association resigns

Tuesday, 13 August 2013 13:33 Published in Local News

BOONVILLE, Mo. (AP) - The president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association has resigned after getting flak about a State Fair event that mocked President Barack Obama.

An attorney for Boonville School Superintendent Mark Ficken said Tuesday that his client resigned from the rodeo association to protest its response to the Saturday incident.

Ficken was the rodeo announcer.

But attorney Albert Watkins says it was a rodeo clown wearing a microphone - not Ficken - who riled up the crowd as a bull chased a man wearing an Obama mask. The act was widely criticized by Missouri officials as disrespectful of Obama.

Watkins says Ficken resigned because the association had not barred the rodeo clown from its group.

The Boonville School District is hiring an investigator to look into Ficken's role in the event.
