Many Morning Joe viewers probably have forgotten, or never knew, that the body of a female aide once was found in Scarborough’s Congressional office. Investigators quickly saw that a blow to the head, delivered accidentally or intentionally, was involved in Lori Klausutis’ death. There are also some serious questions as to the mental competency of the doctor who performed the autopsy, as well as an important question about why there was no time of death recorded on his autopsy.
According to the Daily Kos: Joe Scarborough, a U.S. Congressman from Florida’s 1st District from 1995 suddenly resigned only 5 months into his 4th term in September 2001. His reason? The classic “In order to spend more time with his children.”
Curiously, just 2 months before he resigned, his 28-year-old staffer was found dead in his office.
While Mainstream Media was hounding Democrat U.S. Congressman Gary Condit about his missing ex-intern, Chandra Levy, viewers heard next to nothing about Joe’s intern, a healthy 28-year-old woman was found dead in his Congressional District Office in Fort Walton Beach, FL.
Only two days after Scarborough’s staffer was found dead in his office, the 9-11 terror attack happened, and this huge story was mostly ignored by media outlets.
The Hill – Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old office staffer who worked for Scarborough when he was a representative from Florida. Klausutis was found dead in the congressman’s district office in July 2001.
The autopsy of Lori Klausutis makes no reference to a time of death. That raises new questions about an investigation that started when the 28-year-old woman’s body was found in the office of then U.S. Representative Joe Scarborough in summer 2001.
Accidental death was the official finding in the Klausutis case, with a cardiac arrhythmia causing her to fall and hit her head on a desk. But the recent discovery of human remains at a storage unit in Pensacola, Florida, casts doubt on that ruling. That’s because the storage unit was rented by Dr. Michael Berkland, the man who conducted the Klausutis autopsy 11 years earlier.
