The media constantly accuse Trump supporters of starting the rumor that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdered an intern that was working for him in order to cover up an affair the former congressman was having with the young woman.
But what if I told you it was Joe Scarborough that kicked off and fueled that rumor.
In 2003, Scarborough made an appearance on “IMUS In The Morning,” and during the interview, he joked with host Don Imus that he had to kill his intern because he was having an affair with the 28-year-old woman.
During the interview, host Don Imus says that he asked Scarborough when he went into Congress and the then-representative said that “you said you had sex with an intern and then you had to kill her.”
“Exactly,” Scarborough responded with a laugh.
“That’s pretty risky to say,” Imus responded.
“What are you gonna do?” Scarborough continued to joke.
Just in case YouTube has deleted the video above, you can see it below:
Who is Lori Klausutis and what happened to her?
Lori Klausutis was an intern working for Joe Scarborough, the co-host of Morning Joe on MSNBC, before she died on July 19, 2001. Klausutis worked in Joe Scarborough’s Fort Walton Beach congressional office from 1999-2001 during his time as a U.S. Republican Congressman from Florida’s 1st District.
According to reports, Lori Klausutis’ body was found just after 8 AM on July 20, 2001, by Juanita Marie Bergmann, a Destin resident and former nurse, and her husband, Andreas Bergmann who had an appointment at Joe Scarborough’s office.
Two Fort Walton Beach police officers who witnessed the autopsy “reported her skull had been fractured.” This initial finding led to many theories that the former aide had been murdered.
The 18-page autopsy report written by Associate State Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Berkland said Lori “died from striking her head on the edge of a desk in the office. The fall that caused her to strike the desk was likely triggered by an undiagnosed heart condition known as floppy mitral valve disease, which is typically marked by abnormal heart rhythms.”
According to the Northwest Florida Daily News, Dr. Berkland released the exhaustive autopsy report to “extinguish the fires of speculation” surrounding the case.
In the report, Dr. Berkland said the hairline fracture found on Klausutis’ skull is consistent with an unconscious person’s fall and totally inconsistent with a physical assault. “We know for a fact she wasn’t whacked in the head because of the nature of the injury,” he wrote.
Dr. Berkland said the immediate cause of death was ruled “an acute subdural hematoma, or a blood clot, that resulted from a closed head trauma sustained in a fall,” later adding, “The manner of death is an accident. She was near unconsciousness as she was falling…because she did nothing to protect herself.”
Joe Scarborough’s office released the following press release in 2001, “My staff and family are greatly saddened by the loss of Lori Klausutis. I know Lori will be missed by the thousands of citizens who regularly contact my office to seek assistance with a variety of problems. May God grant Lori’s family the grace, comfort, and hope that will get them through this difficult time,”
