Another One Bites The Dust ...

Rep. Timothy Murphy (R-Penn), has resigned following the public disclosure of a sex scandal, in which he, despite being a strident advocate of restrictions upon abortion in his public speeches, is reported to have requested his mistress to have an abortion after she became pregnant with his child.

More on this here ...

Pennsylvania Rep. Tim Murphy has resigned after a report surfaced earlier this week that he had asked an extramarital lover to end her pregnancy.

Murphy, a Republican who co-sponsored a 20-week abortion ban that passed in the House Tuesday, allegedly asked his lover to terminate her pregnancy, according to text message records acquired by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Shannon Edwards, 32, whom Murphy recently admitted to having an affair with, messaged the 65-year-old congressman after an anti-abortion statement was posted on his office’s Facebook account in January.

"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," allegedly wrote Edwards in a text exchange that was a part of a number of documents obtained by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Ah, the smell of right wing hypocrisy is present in the air again ...

Here's to hoping that two more don't spring up in his place. :cheers:

Another case study of the true GOP position on abortion:

The only necessary abortion is the abortion that you got for your wife, your daughter, or your mistress.
