Montini: Tim Murphy, 'pro-life' abortion hypocrite, will quit Congress

That's politics for you: Soon-to-'retire' Rep. Tim Murphy is an anti-abortion zealot who wants his illicit girlfriend to

EJ Montini: Politics in a nutshell. An anti-abortion zealot who wants his illicit girlfriend to have an abortion.

The soon-to-be “retired” Republican Rep. Tim Murphy is politics in a nutshell.

An anti-abortion zealot who wanted his illicit lover to have an abortion.

‘Nuf said.                               

The virulent anti-abortion congressman from Pennsylvania – a married man -- was outed recently as having urged his lover to terminate her presumed pregnancy.

He first said he was going to resign after the end of the current term.

He now has moved up the date to the end of this month.

This will avoid any ethics investigation.

A way to save face.

Or at least to save one of his faces.

 

Meantime, for having lived a two-faced lie while supposedly serving the people of Pennsylvania Murphy actually was thanked in a statement by Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan for “his many years of tireless work on mental health issues here in Congress and his service to the country as a naval reserve officer.”

No mention of the extramarital affair.

No mention of his girlfriend’s text reading, "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."

No mention of how this hypocrite was a vocal member of the House Pro-Life Caucus.

No mention of the fact that, by retiring, he’ll be eligible to collect a congressional pension. (He was first elected in 2002. Pensions kick in after five years in office.)

That’s how it goes in Congress.

You lie. You cheat. You disgrace your office and dishonor your family. 

You get paid.

You get thanked.
