How Did Joe Scarborough Get So Rich?
Being a media sensation that has hosted and taken part in multiple television productions over the past 20 years is how the cable news host became a millionaire.

His most high-profile case to this day remains Michael F. Griffin whom he briefly represented. Griffin murdered Doctor David Gunn in 1993. Scarborough eventually removed himself from the case and decided to focus on politics.
