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.

A response from Murphy's phone number allegedly read, "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."

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the exchange was over "an unfounded pregnancy scare."

Hardly surprising. I posted about this person on Twitter a couple of days ago when it was disclosed this right-wing, family-values, conservative, pro-life piece of crap had a mistress and demanded her abort an unwanted baby.

 

He's a piece of shit, like most people who adhere to some select labels.

The Flagrant Sexual Hypocrisy of Conservative Men

 

 

It’s all about control — whether you’re telling a woman she can’t have an abortion, or forcing a woman to get one.

At least he has resigned from his seat ......... which, not unusual for those who know they have screwed up, is VERY unusual for a "Piece of Sh*t". It's a strange old world on the internet.

He didn't just "screw up", and it's not like he did something "honourable" by resigning.  He resigned because his position was no longer tenable - because he was clearly exposed to be a piece of shît - with no excuse.
