A clown wearing a mask of President Barack Obama was chased by a bull at the Missouri State Fair’s rodeo, prompting an apology Sunday by fair officials and condemnation by statewide officials in both parties.

The Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, which sponsored the event, also has issued an apologyand said it was “dealing with the situation firmly and quickly as this type of behavior will not be tolerated. The sport of rodeo is not meant to be a political platform.”

But the apologies haven’t quelled the controversy, which has generated calls for state investigations, particularly because the fair is taxpayer funded.
