The mistress of a Congressman who has previously identified as “pro-life” is claiming that he urged her to abort the child of their affair. The mistress claims that the Congressman related to her how he “winced” when staff sent out pro-life social media posts on his behalf.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette revealed in an October 3 article that text messages between Rep. Tim Murphy, R-PA, and the woman with whom had an affair indicate that Murphy doesn’t privately agree with his public “pro-life” views.
“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,” Murphy’s mistress, Shannon Edwards, wrote to him via text message on January 25, just days before the annual March for Life.
Apparently, Edwards had thought she was pregnant. It does not seem that she actually was.
“I get what you say about my March for life messages,” a text message response from Murphy’s phone, written by the Congressman, said. “I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don’t write any more. I will.” (Read more from “‘Pro-life’ Congressman Allegedly Urges Mistress to Have Abortion – Messages Reveal He ‘Winced’ at His Former Pro-life Statements” HERE)
