More on Patrick Murphy’s Quest to Become PA Attorney General

Keep in mind that Murphy just left office in January, 2011. Perhaps he’s found that feeding at the public trough is easier than working in private (is a law firm really private?) enterprise. Or, perhaps the law firm knew he just needed a parking spot for a couple of months while he got his next campaign together, and figured they’d curry some quick political favor.

Whatever it is, it isn’t pretty.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Former Bucks County Congressman Patrick Murphy is running for office again, this time for Pennsylvania attorney general.

The 37-year-old Democrat, who lost his seat in October to Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, touted his military record and vowed to keep fighting for Pennsylvanians should he be elected the state’s top prosecutor in 2012.

“The people of Pennsylvania need someone in the attorney general’s office that’s going to stand up for them and protect them from criminals on the street and big special interests that prey on the vulnerable,” he said.

Murphy made his announcement Wednesday with a speech in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia, and released a list of more than 40 endorsements from various unions and Democratic leaders, including U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Phila.), former gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato, and the chairmen of Bucks and Montgomery counties’ Democratic Parties.

Aren’t those endorsements reassuring? Read the rest here.
