DescriptionThere was further fallout Monday from a controversy sparked Saturday night when a rodeo clown wearing a mask of President Barack Obama was taunted in front of a cheering and jeering Missouri State Fair crowd.

First came word Monday morning that Mark Ficken, superintendent of the Boonville R-1 School District and an announcer at the event, had obtained legal counsel in hopes of clearing his name. Ficken became president of the Missouri Cowboy Rodeo Association Saturday morning, a post he resigned after just two days Monday.

Regardless of the resignation, St. Louis attorney Albert Watkins says Ficken wants to “set the story straight.”
