Joe Scarborough

QUIET DIVORCE

... After 12-Year Marriage

10/10/2013 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1009_joe_scarborough_gettyJoe Scarborough -- host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" -- quietly divorced his wife of 12 years back in January ... TMZ has learned.

The 50-year-old former Florida congressman filed the divorce docs in Connecticut back in September 2012 ... seeking to end his marriage to Susan Waren, a former aide to FL Gov. Jeb Bush. The two were married in 2001.

The former couple have 2 minor children together -- a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old.

There have been rumors for years that Scarborough has a thing for his "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski (who is married btw). And the sexual tension between the two is so apparent, they addressed it during a media event in 2009 ... denying having any sort of romantic feelings for each other.

1009_Mika-Brzezinski_joe_scarborough_getty2It's not Scarborough's first brush with divorce -- the conservative pundit ended his 1st marriage to Melanie Hinton back in 1999 after 13 years together. Joe and Melanie had 2 children together, who are now adults.

2:50 PM PT -- Joe and Susan tell us they "are still close friends" and remain focused on raising their children. They added, "This was a difficult decision but after much prayer and counseling, we concluded it was the right one for our family."

When reading a news story about Joe, it's always a relief to find that no young girls were killed.

I'm willing to give Mika the benefit of the doubt on this one. Could this be another James/Mary opposites-attract? In that case, they're BOTH fugly.

Joe Scarborough is a liberal republican.

Let's get that straight.

He's the epitome of a RINO (for those who don't know: Republican In Name Only).

He's no conservative, he tries to buddy up to the liberals by bashing real conservatives... Look in the comments and see how much that helps him out with liberals...
