"FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. - Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old office worker for Rep. Joe Scarborough (R-Fl), was found dead in the congressman's district office. Police said preliminary findings from Michael Berkland of the medical director's office showed no foul play or any outward indication of suicide." Dr. Michael Berkland had recently relocated to Florida. His medical license in the state of Missouri was revoked in 1998 as a result of Berkland reporting false information regarding brain tissue samples in a 1996 autopsy report. Berkland does not deny the charges." AMPOL, 8/9/01 Joe Scarborough had recently resigned from Congress unexpectedly, soon after a divorce and amid rumors about his marital fidelity. He had also abruptly resigned as publisher of the Independent Florida Sun. AMPOL, 8/14/01

Unbelievably, that was it. The story was simply dropped. A young female employee of one of Florida's Republican Congressmen had died inexplicably in the Congressman's office. There were no witnesses to her death and the cause of death was not apparent, but the police somehow knew there was no foul play. In the scramble to cover up the truth somebody in the police department forgot to tell Dr. Nelson, the Chairman of the Medical Examiners Commission to dummy up. Dr. Nelson said; "What we have here is the death of a healthy young woman who died of a blow to the head, and a lie from the Medical Director's office about this blow which was quite obvious to the naked eye."

Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the mysterious death of Lori Klausutis is the way it was completely ignored by the corporate media, the same way they ignored Philip Giordano, the Republican who ran against Joe Lieberman for the Connecticut Senate seat. He is in jail now for soliciting sex from girls as young as nine. 

Since it is your goal at MSNBC to lend legitimacy to the corporate regime that stole the 2000 election, you should also consider giving ex republican Mayor Philip Giordano, a child rapist, a spot on your network along with Joe Scarborough when he gets out of jail.

The studios, from which Mr. Joe Scarborough does his broadcasting are located at One MSNBC Plaza in Secaucus, New Jersey.  Let's demand justice for Lori Klausutis. Here's what you can do right now. Open a prewritten and addressed letter to letters@msnbc.com,  , or cut and paste the entire article and PS. shown above into the letter instead.
