Scandal Uncovers Congressman’s True Nature

Politicians often think the rules don’t apply to them, and that somehow they are held to a different standard than the rest of the world.

In a recent turn of events, this pro-life congressman is no different. Building a career on traditional values and advocating for the unborn, this Pennsylvania Congressman boasted of his “bonafide” pro-life values.

But then, he got a woman pregnant. And it wasn’t his wife. And instead of owning up to his actions, he asked his young girlfriend to do the unthinkable.

It’s bad enough this conservative congressman cheated on his wife, with a young woman half his age, and ended up getting her pregnant.

But even worse, he asked her to get an abortion.

As if somehow he had the power to influence her on how to treat the innocent life growing inside her womb.

The pro-life congressman, who spent his career advocating for the unborn, when caught under the same circumstances other Americans face, chose wrong.

But this woman didn’t cower in fear to the wealthy politician.

Instead, she shed light on the dark secret he was keeping from the American people.

And when the young woman called him out, pointing out he posted several pro-life comments on his Facebook page, Congressman Murphy “winced” at the pro-life posts and blamed them on his staff.

LifeSite News reported:

“The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette revealed earlier this week that text messages from the cell phone of Rep. Tim Murphy, who self-identifies as pro-life, said he “winced” at pro-life statements his staff wrote for him.

“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,” Murphy’s mistress, Shannon Edwards, wrote to him via text message on January 25, just days before the annual March for Life.

He admitted to having an affair with Edwards about a month ago. Murphy is in the middle of a divorce.

The text message response sent from Murphy’s phone said: “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 anymore. I will.”

Instead of deeply repenting, and turning from his ways, he wanted to make it all go away as if the baby’s life suddenly didn’t matter.

Being publicly “pro-life” then making different decisions in private is not pro-life. It’s deception.

What makes it even worse, is he should have immediately resigned. But he didn’t. He actually wanted to fulfill his term, and remain in office.

The official press release from his website said:

“After discussions with my family and staff, I have come to the decision that I will not seek re-election to Congress at the end of my current term.

I plan to spend my remaining months in office continuing my work as the national leader on mental health care reform, as well as issues affecting working families in southwestern Pennsylvania.

We have accomplished much in the past year through the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act and there is much work yet to be done.

“n the coming weeks I will take personal time to seek help as my family and I continue to work through our personal difficulties and seek healing. I ask you to respect our privacy during this time.”

However, after supposedly receiving pressure, Congressman Murphy has submitted his letter of resignation.

The scandal deepened even further when women from his office went public with the disgraceful way they’ve been treated.

Politico reported:

“GOP insiders also were worried that additional damaging stories could surface involving Murphy and his office. The Post-Gazette revealed that his staff was in turmoil for years, with the congressman yelling at aides and throwing folders…

The sudden furor surrounding Murphy brought a wave of detractors eager to tell of their mistreatment at his hands during his time in Congress.

Five former Murphy employees contacted POLITICO to share stories of inappropriate behavior by both Murphy and his chief of staff Susan Mosychuk. Those included tales of staff being berated as “worthless” and “stupid.” Others told of being forced by Mosychuk to take the stairs instead of the elevators as punishments for under performing.”

From his staff to the young woman half his age, to his wife. Let this be a lesson to all, that actions have consequences, and one cannot simply live as a political playboy, and expect to escape unscathed.
