Scarborough Pole Dances Around Racy Comment

6/5/2007 6:00 PM PDT
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is under fire for making a salacious on-air comment, insinuating that the wife of former Senator and "Law & Order" star Fred Thompson is a stripper. *Dun dun!*

During a discussion about strip tease and pole dancing as a form of exercise, Scarborough brought up Thompson's wife, Jeri Kehn, who is 25 years younger than Thompson, and asked "You think she works the pole?" Somewhere Don Imus is smiling!

MSNBC is sticking to their claim that the remark was not sexual in nature and merely a reference to a popular exercise routine. She looks like she works the pole to us!
