" In a move that will decrease in the record of Washington as "foreseeable," the staunchly pro-life Rep. Tim Murphy might be pro-life when it involves his voting document; today, he enacted favor of the House's 20-week abortion ban. However he isn't exactly pro-life when it comes to his own individual quest of consequence-free adulterous sex.
The Pennsylvania Republican politician's "no abortions with the exception of my mistress" stance was disclosed today, when the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette successfully unsealed the divorce procedures of Shannon Edwards, the formerly wed lady with which Murphy was having an affair until just recently. Murphy confessed to the affair in September. Edwards, a forensic psycho therapist– it's all so Shondaland!– exchanged messages with Murphy earlier this year where she indicated that the anti-abortion lawmaker had actually directly motivated her to have an abortion throughout a maternity scare.
In response to an anti-abortion message on the Congressman's Facebook web page in January, Edwards texted, "And also you have no issue uploading your pro-life position when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child simply recently when we believed that was just one of the choices."
In response, Murphy disavowed the social media sites messages, associating them to his team. "I review them and winced," he wrote."
