    GOP congressman repeatedly promoted antiabortion stance a week after reportedly telling mistress to get abortion

    Hypocrisy, thy name is Rep. Tim Murphy.

    We already knew that the Pennsylvania Republican had engaged in an extramarital affair, after it came out in his mistress's divorce records. But things got much worse for Murphy on Tuesday: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that text messages indicate he told his mistress to get an abortion when they had a pregnancy scare.

    That's especially problematic because Murphy is supposed to be an antiabortion congressman. He's got nearly a flawless voting record, as far as groups like the Family Research Council are concerned. And in fact, it was his promotion of that position that led to the fateful exchange with his mistress, Shannon Edwards.

    Rep. Tim Murphy said Thursday that he will resign from Congress this month, a day after the eight-term Pennsylvania Republican announced that he would not seek reelection amid a personal scandal.

    The Republicans get rid of their crooked-lying scum when the opportunity arises. The Democrats move them to a different position inside their party, and with their accomplices in the media, the story goes away within a day or so.
