#TXLEGE: This Jim Murphy situation is very, Very, VERY Serious

"No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
Matthew 6:24

This is bad:

  • Murphy has second government job running obscure special purpose district in Harris County.
  • Murphy dodged the reporter physically, then dodged reporter's question once confonted.
  • $312,000 per year.
  • State law says legislator can't hold second taxpayer funded job.
  • He's all over the place on their social media.
  • Getting bonuses for getting contracts from state agencies over which he has budgetary authority; Murphy lied about the amount of those bonuses he's received.
  • "Any common sense person knows that, if you've got a chance to make some money, you're gonna try to get that done.
It gets worse:


  • Murphy making more that either the Governor or the Mayor of Houston.
  • "If the goal of these contracts was to get favors out of Austin by hiring a state rep, they seem to be an effective mechanism for how to wire the system in an unethical way."
  • "Corruption in Austin is fish in a barrel."
    • Note: LOL, ain't that the truth.
  • Murphy's been doing this since 2007.
  • Gets travel re-imbursments.
Worse Still:

Bottom Line: This is really, really, bad.
