Earlier this year, Ed Schultz cancelled a scheduled appearance at a Florida Democratic fundraiser. MSNBC claimed Schultz didn’t realize the event was a fundraiser, and cancelled the appearance when he did.
MSNBC has suspended top talent before for crossing the line between on-air advocacy and off-air activity; Scarborough and then-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann were both suspended for donations to their respective political parties in 2010.
The event Scarborough will speak at costs $50 for general admission, and $35 for Young Republicans. The money goes straight to the Republican Party.
We’ve reached out to MSNBC for comment, but have not heard back.
