Levittown, PA – Patrick Murphy, former captain in the U.S. Army, Iraq war veteran, and Democratic nominee for Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District, today renewed his call for Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert to resign and asked whether Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick would do the same.
“Congressman Fitzpatrick should take a stand: either support Speaker Hastert’s actions in covering up Ex-Rep. Mark Foley’s predatory behavior, or demand Hastert’s resignation. As a former federal prosecutor, I’ve put sexual predators behind bars. Anyone who is willing to turn the other way while a predator lurks in the halls of Congress is unfit for the title of Congressman. Speaker Hastert must resign, and I urge Congressman Fitzpatrick to join me in calling for his resignation.”
