Alt Headline: The Rep. Patrick Murphy Bailout
Because that is what it is:
Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Patrick Murphy (Fla.) is getting a major financial boost as his campaign heads into the final stretch, courtesy of a $1 million check from his father.
Thomas Murphy, a Florida home builder, gave the seven-figure sum to the Harry Reid-linked Senate Majority PAC – the group’s largest donation in July, according to the Federal Election Commission.
We all know Thomas Murphy is the financial muscle behind Patrick Murphy.
And oh, look who showed up in this article: Senator Harry Reid. I wonder why…
On July 15, two days after the $1 million check landed in the Senate Majority PAC account, the super-PAC announced to the Washington Post its plans to launch a $1 million ad buy in Florida.
The reported aim was to help Murphy win his primary on Aug. 30 against liberal challenger Rep. Alan Grayson, who is openly opposed by Democratic leadership.
Oh yeah right, Rep. Alan Grayson. What we have here is Thomas Murphy giving a knife to Harry Reid, who then stabs Grayson with said knife. The Alan Grayson/Harry Reid fight is just plain awesome and well documented on this site. You can read about it in their tags below.
There is a very small part of me that wishes that Alan Grayson win the Democratic Primary, because the Senator Marco Rubio* and Alan Grayson fight would totally be awesome. Sadly, the Marco Rubio/Patrick Murphy fight might be slightly one-sided**.
(gets on his knees)
Please God, please give the primary win to Alan Grayson. I don’t ask for much. Please enrich my life and give me some more Grayson. It will be a very boring general election here in Florida without Alan Grayson. Amen.
Well, see ya’ later!
