    Apparently undeterred by death threats sent to fellow politicians who dared to speak out against offensive comments made by Rush Limbaugh, San Francisco Supervisor Eric Mar is introducing a resolution to condemn the talk show host.

    Public officials across the country have demanded an apology from the conservative radio commentator after he offended many Chinese-Americans when he did an impersonation of Chinese President Hu Jintao during his visit to the United States.

    Mar's legislation would ask Limbaugh to apologize for "his remarks (that) show extreme disrespect to Chinese Americans." The bill was scheduled to be voted on Tuesday evening.

    Last week State Sen. Leland Yee said he received a threatening fax, allegedly from a Limbaugh supporter, after he demanded the conservative host apologize for his comments.

    Other politicians reported receiving similar threats.
