Official apologizes for online mockery of Limbaugh's death

An elected official in a western Michigan community has apologized for posting a line of online laughs about the death of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. More than 300 people participated by video conference during a Middleville council meeting Tuesday. Public comment about Amanda Fisk's Facebook post lasted more than two hours. Fisk is a Middleville council member and village president. She posted a series of "HA-HA-HA" next to a news story about Limbaugh's death last week. Fisk called it a "stupid mistake." Her defenders say she has a right to free speech.
