Joe Scarborough linked to first anti-abortion terrorist, Mike Griffin

Well isn't this interesting? It looks like Doucheborough (@joenbc) found the lawyer in Pensacola for the first anti-abortion terrorist, Mike Griffin, in 1993 (h/t @Shoq).

From TamaBay.com:

The frustrating search for an attorney for Michael F. Griffin, the man charged with killing an abortion doctor, ended with his hiring of Clearwater defense lawyer Patrick Doherty.

The lawyer helping Griffin with his search said he was inundated with faxes, letters and phone calls from publicity-seeking lawyers across the state after he announced in court last week that Griffin still had not found a lawyer.

Doherty agreed to take the Pensacola anti-abortion protester's case after a 3-hour meeting with Griffin and [Joe] Scarborough on Saturday.
Who is Mike Griffin? Here's what Wikipedia says:

Michael Frederick Griffin (born September 11, 1961), murdered Dr. David Gunn in Pensacola, Florida on March 10, 1993. This was the first killing of an OB-GYN for performing abortions.

The then 31-year-old Griffin waited outside Gunn's clinic and shot him three times in the back. He is reported to have yelled "Don't kill any more babies," just before the shooting. Griffin did not attempt to hide his involvement in the murder, telling police, "We need an ambulance."

A jury deliberated three hours before finding him guilty on March 4, 1994. He was sentenced to life in prison. He is currently serving in Okaloosa Correctional Institution in Crestview, Florida. The murder was one of the justifications for the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.
I think Doucheborough has some explaining to do, no?
