article imageOlbermann finally speaks after his suspension from Countdown

By Carolyn E. Price     Nov 7, 2010 in World
After being suspended without pay by MSNBC last week for donating to Democratic politicians without disclosure, Keith Olbermann has sent a "tweet-out' to his many followers.
Olbermann was suspended for an "indefinite" period after it was revealed to MSNBC that he had contributed to the campaigns of Democratic Kentucky Senate candidate Jack Conway, and Arizona Reps. Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords.
Today, Olbermann tweeted on his official Twitter account:
Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO
Olbermann was suspended because it is alleged that he violated NBC's ethics policy that states that employees in their news organization obtain permission from NBC prior to making a donation that could be deemed to be a conflict of interest.
Grijalva is a regular on Olbermann's show and is a vehement protagonist against the controversial immigration law in Arizona.
