Yesterday, at the request of the White House, Patrick Murphy joined Elizabeth Warren and Valerie Jarrett to promote Obama’s gun agenda.The White House did not respond to the Palm Beach Post’s query on why Murphy, who is in a competitive Democratic primary, was selected for such a benefit, but we’ve got the answer.
That’s how much Patrick’s Republican family donated to Obama’s election efforts in 2008 and 2012, despite also supporting and donating to Obama’s Republican opponents.
And similar to how the Republican Murphys donated to Al Franken,Ted Deutch, Alcee Hastings, Fredrica Wilson, and Alex Sink, their son ended up with a big boost to his campaign against Alan Grayson.
Patrick, tell us again how you want to get money out of politics.
“Wherever Patrick Murphy’s family money goes, good things soon follow for his political career. For someone constantly lecturing everyone about keeping money out of politics, Murphy has had no problems using his parents’ millions to buy his way up the political ladder.” – Senate Leadership Spokesman, Ian Prior
