    The media is not so much about Republicans and Democrats with things like this. They are in the entertainment business and a juicy scandal of a Congressman possibly killing a pretty married staffer would be a huge deal. Levy was a huge deal not because it was a Democrat but because it was a pretty white young missing woman. The media salivates over these cases. Just look at Scott Peterson. Laci Peterson should never have been a national news story but the case got picked up on the right day and became a circus as missing cases become due to not having any immediate resolution. The media has a strong bias against pretty white girls who go missing. Chandra Levy's case was bullshit. You have a black man go missing like that and the Penny Saver wouldn't even cover it. Pretty white girl and it's a five alarm fire.

    Scarborough wasn't even in Florida at the time of the incident. The initial police statements said that there was no indication of foul play. From all accounts it seems like the girl had a heart hick up, blacked out and hit her head which led to her death. Asking for the ME certification sounds like a crazy birther asking for a long form birth certificate.

    We're all well acquainted with the dirty trick of saying "I'm just asking questions." It seems like the aide's widower or family one would be demanding questions answered if the answers weren't satisfactory to them. They're not. The questions imply that somehow this is a massive conspiracy. That the police, Scarborough, the ME, etc. are all in on it. Scarborough was a disgraced lame duck Representative who was on his way out the door. There's absolutely no way he would have that kind of power. The Republican leadership would have just cut him loose and even with that kind of power you wouldn't leave the body in your office. If you're that good at covering up foul play by apparently paying off everyone investigating the incident and everyone in the news media you would also be good enough to remove the body from the office and dispose of it in a less incriminating place.

      Did anyone check their bank accounts

      Oh really disgraced lame duck representative... wasn't there just an election that he won overwhelmingly?

      Smell like a cover up?

      If Lori's death was just a simple accident, then why did Rep. Scarborough and his spokesman Miguel Serrano feel the need to go to two different local TV stations within three hours of her body's being found and invent a nonexistent history of chronic medical conditions for her -- in other words, why did they feel the need to lie about Lori's health?

      Would you trust the word of a Medical Examiner who lost his license in two separate states, Missouri and Florida?

      Would the police rule out foul play until they knew the cause of the wound, before an autopsy was conducted and toxicology tests performed, if Scarborough was an ordinary Joe?

      A few months after Klausutis' death, responding to a question by Chris Matthews about what would happen to an aide left his employ and wrote about him, Scarborough blurted out "I think they'd be in danger."

      Don Imus surprised Scarborough with a question from left field: "You said you had sex with that intern and then you had to kill her." Scarborough, laughing, replied, "Yeah, well what are you gonna do?"

      The Republican leadership would have just cut him loose and even with that kind of power you wouldn't leave the body in your office. If you're that good at covering up foul play by apparently paying off everyone investigating the incident and everyone in the news media you would also be good enough to remove the body from the office and dispose of it in a less incriminating place.

      You want a Conspiracy, well I give you one and it starts with Jeb Bush

      Jeb Bush seems to have his hand in a whole lot of things.

      *    His appointed Chief Commissioned Medical Examiner
      1.    Failed to provide an explanation as to why a SUSPENDED Medical Examiner was chosen to perform the autopsy on this young woman
      2.    This same Chief Commissioner had donated to Scarborough Political Campaign

      *    Scarborough Second Wife, Susan Warren, previously an Aid to Jeb Bush

      *    Jeb Bush, the same Jeb Bush happened to be Governor when his Brother, the Republican Party and the Republican Supreme Court Stole the 2000 Election....

      *    And just recently Jeb Bush tried to not only break the
      break the Florida's Teacher's Union but wanted to make sure his brother Neil Bush profited from doing so

      So don't tell me the Republicans aren't capable of getting away with murder.... The ONLY thing the Republicans would throw out to the wolves is a Gay Republican who has been publicly outted...

      I guess that's the only time they will stand up to Rush Limbuagh

      And as far as the News Media... Media outlets like CNN was too busy trying to get Fox Viewers so they were less concerned about doing their job...

      For example, CNN and its new chief, Walter Isaacson, met with right-wing Republicans like Tom DeLay and J.C. Watts last week, begging them to help him tell their story on the network, Roll Call magazine reports. That gesture left Republican staffers encouraged. "He's panicking about losing viewers to Fox," said one aide, referring to the far-right-leaning propaganda mill owned by Rupert Murdoch. "He said, 'Give us guidance on how to reach more conservatives.'"
      •  Yeah that's pretty much an insane CT (0+ / 0-)

        Congrats. You're a nut job.

        Scarborough announced his resignation on May 21st to be effective in September. The aide was found July 20th.

        You don't even have the basics of the case right. Next you'll be telling me that the aide was killed because she knew about the plans for 9/11 and Scarborough was central in its planning. It's a little SUSPICIOUS that the aide was found dead less than TWO MONTHS before the largest terrorist attack in this country's history? Why isn't anyone asking these questions??!?!?!?!?!?

        •  Okay you got one right (0+ / 0-)
          which was corrected with the follow up link below which I see you failed to comment on..  I noticed also that you failed to dispute any of my other facts but you latched on so aggressively to his resignation while at the same time trying to play head games as if you are dealing with Mika Brzezinski

          And you know what I also noticed... you seem to be familiar with certain incidents which begs the question who is actually theChop and why is "he" so interested in this particular story... why is "he" so defensive when it comes to this particular story.... Why has "he" been picked as the chosen spoke person for Joe Scarborough?

          VERY INTERESTING how your arrogance conveniences you that you can play mind games with just anyone and that they would be so weak enough as to follow...
