Last week we stated that we would verify whether or not Allen West’s wiley little congressional opponent Patrick Murphy had donated to Governor Mitt Romney’s during his 2008 Presidential campaign. Yes, it’s true- Patrick Erin Murphy donated $2300 to Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney in November of 2007. In all fairness, Murphy has also donated money to his fellow Democrats including former Republican Charlie Crist, Ted Deutch, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
So why the donation to Romney? Will Murphy ask for forgiveness from his fellow Democrats for his donation to Romney now that he is a registered Democrat? Most people aren’t aware that Patrick Murphy was a registered Republican until January of 2011 – at least not yet.
