Rep. Tim Murphy, 64, a Pennsylvania congressman has confirmed that he had an extramarital affair with a married 32-year-old woman – an announcement that came after it was revealed that the Republican politician is expected to be deposed in the couple’s divorce.
Murphy, 64, came clean in a Wednesday statement issued through his attorney, admitting that he was romantically involved with forensic psychologist Shannon Edwards, 32, the wife of Dr. Jesse Sally, a sports medicine physician, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
“Last year I became involved in an affair with a personal friend. This is nobody’s fault but my own, and I offer no excuses,” he reportedly said in the statement. “To the extent that there should be any blame in this matter, it falls solely upon me. I ask the media to respect the privacy of my family. They have done nothing wrong and deserve to be left alone.”
Murphy is married to wife Nanette and has an adult daughter, Bevin.
