It appears Pennsylvanian Rep. Tim Murphy has been a bad boy. Also, he’s a hypocrite. And he’s a Republican, in case you didn’t guess.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, a text message sent in January to Murphy by a woman with whom he had an extra-marital relationship criticized him for an anti-abortion statement posted on Facebook from his office’s public account.
“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.
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 anymore. I will.”
Murphy has been lauded by the Family Research Council, for his stance on abortion, as well as for family values, generally. He also has been endorsed by LifePAC, which opposes abortion rights, and is a member of the House Pro-Life Caucus, an affiliation that is often cited by his office.
Murphy had admitted to the affair last month, saying “Last year I became involved in an affair with a personal friend,” the Republican lawmaker said in a statement released through his lawyer. “This is nobody’s fault but my own, and I offer no excuses. To the extent that there should be any blame in this matter, it falls solely upon me.”
The congressman added, “I ask the media to respect the privacy of my family. They have done nothing wrong and deserve to be left alone.”
