Bob Turner, the Republican television executive hoping to win a special election for the New York congressional seat vacated by Anthony Weiner, is running on a long record of accomplishment. But there are also a few flops in there. Indeed, Turner is the man to thank for bringing Rush Limbaugh to television.

Turner has been outspoken in the past about his ties with Limbaugh, boasting about his involvement in Limbaugh's 1990s syndicated TV deal. A long-time TV executive, Turner also produced "The Jerry Springer Show" and "Baywatch."
