The far left Democratic candidate challenging respected Congressman John Mica has been dishonest about her past.
By Jacob Engels
Stephanie Murphy is getting MILLIONS from D.C. Democrats like Nancy Pelosi to fuel her campaign against veteran Congressman John Mica.
With that money, she has run an extremely negative campaign, even begging for money during the approach of Hurricane Matthew.
While Murphy's campaign is being backed by many Democratic operatives, we have just uncovered information that may have Democratic voters thinking twice about Murphy as a candidate.
According to leaked documents from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Murphy is closely associated with the for-profit university, Full Sail.
Murphy's stepfather Ed Haddock is the founder of the school, which many Democrats and liberal groups have compared to Trump University.
But Murphy's connection is even deeper to the for-profit college, as portions of leaked documents have described her as the school's "political director".
In her official biography, Murphy says she is an executive at SunGate Capital, whose listed address is the same as the address for Full Sail, according to documents with Sunbiz.org.
Murphy's father-in-law was a major bundler for Barack Obama in 2008, who then betrayed his President for Mitt Romney in 2012, after feeling like the administration had distanced themselves from him. Read about that here.
GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney would go on to embrace Haddock and praise the school as the example of what for-profit colleges were doing right.
However, several liberal commentators popular among Democratic voters then responded with written columns and live television segments questioning Full Sail's high tuition fees, among other things.
Watch MSNBC's Rachel Maddow discuss below and Clinton advisor David Halperin's review of Full Sail here.
Fast forward to 2016 and we see Hillary Clinton spending lots of time targeting for-profit colleges, while Murphy feverishly tries to tap into the nominees support base locally.
The Democratic Party platform even has an entire section dedicated to "Cracking Down on Predatory For-Profit Schools", see page 32.
And that is what could make Democratic voters feel uneasy about Murphy, as current Congressman John Mica is the first choice for the majority of voters in the area.
She does not even list her familial and professional ties to the for-profit university anywhere on her campaign materials.
So, if Democratic voters are against for-profit colleges like Full Sail, then how can they really support Stephanie Murphy?
Ms. Murphy should have been honest with voters from the start. She is Full Sail as their Political Director.
She is Full Sail as the daughter-in-law of the Full Sail founder Ed Haddock.
Stephanie Murphy = For-Profit Colleges = Against Democratic Party Values.
