HYPOCRITE: “Pro-Life” Republican Congressman Told His Mistress Have an Abortion
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the woman with whom he was having an affair confronted Murphy via text after he posted something publicly against abortion.
“And you have zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options,” Shannon Edwards, a forensic psychologist in Pittsburgh with whom the congressman admitted last month to having a relationship, wrote to Mr. Murphy on Jan. 25, in the midst of an unfounded pregnancy scare.
Murphy admitted the hypocritical stance but blamed members of his staff.
A text from Mr. Murphy’s cell phone number that same day in response says, “I get what you say about my March for life messages. I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don’t write any more. I will.”
