As the Senate race in Florida heats up, liberals led by President Barack Obama are pushing hard for Congressman Patrick Murphy to win in the Sunshine State. But as the race grows, the brutal truth about the do-nothing Murphy is making him and the Democrats look like fools.
A recent review of Murphy’s career by CBS Miami was pretty amazing for showing that Murphy is a Congressman without any merit, whose entire life — not just his political career — has been filled with no accomplishments whatsoever.
Not only has Murphy had no accomplishments in life and only got to Congress because his father is a very rich, well-connected Florida businessman, but Murphy has also been caught in a major lie about his own qualifications.
For years, now, Murphy has been going around telling voters his big qualification for being their Congressman is that he was a certified public accountant, so he knows finances he says. However, the CBS report clearly proves that while he is a licensed CPA — in Colorado, not Florida — Murphy never really worked as a CPA in Florida where he claims he worked.
As CBS puts it:
So when Murphy said in 2012, “I got my CPA license and I spent years going to numerous Fortune 500 companies,” the truth is he only spent at most eight months – and not years – with Deloitte & Touche holding a CPA license valid only in Colorado, a state where Murphy has never lived or worked.
A campaign spokesman acknowledged Murphy did not meet Florida’s educational requirements to become a CPA, nevertheless he sought a license in Colorado because “Patrick was excited to start his career.”
The campaign then added: “As a fully-licensed CPA, Patrick is a member of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants.”
Worse, the report also reveals it took Murphy nine tries to pass the CPA exam in Colorado — where it is easier to pass than it is in Florida.
Back in 2012, Murphy won a tough race against former Florida Congressman Allen West after the districts were famously re-mapped. During that race, Murphy, who never served a day in uniform, called West, who was a Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Army, a “coward.”
In any case, once the CBS report came out, Twitter erupted in slams on the lying, unqualified Murphy.

It took Patrick Murphy NINE TIMES to pass the CPA?! How much was his Dad paying Deloitte to keep him on staff through that?

Just asked my CPA dad about Patrick Murphy’s problems with the CPA exam. His take: Anyone in his firm who failed 4x or more would be canned.

But no matter how bad it is for Murphy, he can count on Obama to back him…
