Rachell Maddow requests Thomas Starr King statue for her office April 19, 2009 by Aaron Sawyer
With California replacing Starr King’s statue with a huge 500 lb. bronze statue of the “Gipper”, Ronald Reagan, Rachel Maddow offered to purchase statue of famous Unitarian minister Thomas Starr King, once credited by Abraham Lincoln “as the man who brought in and kept California in the union during the civil war.”
“He would look great in our office. We would take great care of him,” said Rachel.
