My RedState post on Patrick Murphy.

Found here. Short version: guy’s father is trying to buy him a Senate seat in Florida, just like he bought Patrick Murphy (D) a House seat.  Because ‘campaign finance reform’ does not WORK, and never has, and never WILL.


Alan Grayson’s troublesome 3Q fundraising.

This is seriously bad news: Alan Grayson raised only $743K and has $252K cash on hand. How does he expect to beat Patrick Murphy for the Florida Senate Democratic nomination, when Murphy raised $1.5M, and has $3.5M COH? – And the polling isn’t so hot, either: sure, PPP has him ahead… but it’s PPP.

…What can I say? I’d rather have Alan Grayson conceding on Election Night than Patrick Murphy. Having Patrick Murphy lose is just business; there’s nothing personal there. But Grayson? Yeah, Grayson makes it a little personal for us.


Rep. Joe Garcia’s (D, Florida) former chief of staff is going to jail.

But there’s no such thing as election fraud in this country:

Congressman Joe Garcia’s former chief of staff will head to jail for orchestrating a fraudulent, online absentee-ballot request plot during last year’s elections.


#rsrh FL-18 Watch: Allen West campaign kicks Patrick Murphy campaign in the groin.

You read this Roll Call article, and you get the feeling that the author was doing his level best not to laugh at Murphy:

For those without video: it’s an ad that compares what Rep. West and Mr. Murphy were doing on the night of February 16, 2003: West was getting ready to deploy to Iraq, while Murphy was ending a night of bar fights and public intoxication by getting arrested.  Hold on, let me preserve a screen shot for posterity:

God, but this business is fun, sometimes. (more…)


#rsrh Patrick Murphy’s (D PA-08) fake ballot office scam.

Last week it came out that Pennsylvania residents received fake letters from the Pennsylvania Voter Assistance Office (otherwise known as ‘the Democratic party of Bucks County, PA’) soliciting absentee ballot applications from targeted voters.  What made the situation very troubling is that the letters included a prepaid envelope that did not send completed applications to the appropriate Pennsylvanian election office; the applications instead were to go to a private post office box, and anybody who claims to not see the potential there for blatant electoral fraud is either deeply stupid, or a bald-faced liar.

Now NRO has learned that Patrick Murphy’s campaign manager (Tim Persico) was one of the people with access to this post office box, which implies that Murphy was aware of the entire situation.  Murphy has been generally trailing challenger Mike Fitzpatrick; there’s more than a faint whiff of desperation here, even if one discounts the idea of voter fraud.  Although, given the historical record, why one would want to give a Democratic politician in a tough race any slack when it comes to voter fraud eludes me…
