Joe Scarborough Suspended for Two Days For Political DonationsFor the second time this month, MSNBC has cracked down on one of its hosts for improper political donations, today suspending 'Morning Joe' host and former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough for two days, according to Politico. In response, the TV show pundit submitted a regretful public apology.

"I recognize I have the responsibility to honor guidelines and conditions of my employment, and I regret that I failed to do so in this matter," Scarborough said. "I apologize to MSNBC and to anyone who has been negatively affected by my actions."

The news network finalized the suspension after Scarborough acknowledged making eight donations of $500 to anonymous friends and family running for state and local offices, which violates NBC's hard stance against employee donations. On Nov. 5, 'Countdown' host Keith Olbermann was suspended indefinitely for making political donations, but was then re-instated on Nov. 9 after the network took a firestorm of flack from the media.
