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 [2] and condemnation by statewide officials in both parties.

The Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, which sponsored the event, also has issued an apology [3]and 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.

The incident occurred during Saturday night’s rodeo at the fair, held annually in Sedalia, Mo. The two-week fair receives an annual tax subsidy. Officials disagree on the figure, with some official estimates ranging from $400,000 to $5 million a year.
