Did Joe Scarborough sign Grover's anti-tax pledge when he was in Congress?

That is something he should disclose. One way or another.

Anyone know the answer? I've searched Google and couldn't find anything.

1. It looks like ATR only has the 2012 list available...

...and don't have past lists archived online.

They do have their Congressional Ratings and Awards from 2001 to 2007. Joe resigned during the 2001 session, so he has a few "not in office" entries (which includes the pledge for this term):

1 - Taxpayer Protection Pledge: Not in office
2 - Taxpayer Protection Pledge: Not in office
3 - Economic Stimulus: Not in office
4 - Election Reform: Not in office
5 - Fast-Track.: Not in office
6 - Patients' Rights: Voted with us
7 - Medical Savings Accounts: Voted with us
8 - Alaskan Oil: Voted with us
9 - Fuel Economy Standards: Voted against us
10 - Social Security Report: Did not vote
11 - China Trade: Voted against us
12 - Faith-Based Initiatives: Voted with us
13 - School Vouchers: Voted with us
14 - Tax Cuts: Voted with us
15 - Fiscal 2002 Budget: Voted with us
16 - Tax Limitation Amendment: Voted with us
17 - Tax Limitation Amendment: Voted with us
18 - Death Tax Relief: Voted with us
19 - Marriage Tax Reduction: Voted with us
20 - Ergonomics Rule: Voted with us

Overall score: 80%

5. No problem.

That's why he always gets so defensive when people bring up that pledge.

4. It would take back bone and courage to refuse to sign grovers pledge,

which joe scar is lacking, so the answer to your question is, yes he signed it!
