Congressman Tim Murphy Makes Worst Boss List

The Washington Times analyzed a decade of congressional pay records to find the offices with the highest turnover rates.

According to a study by The Washington Times, U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Upper St. Clair) is the fifth worst boss on Capitol Hill.

The Washington Times analyzed a decade of congressional pay records to find the offices with the highest turnover rates and it found that Murphy has a 42 percent average turnover rate, peaking at 64 percent in 2006.

Four other representatives had turnover rates higher than Murphy:

  1. 53% Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat
  2. 47% Rep. Betty Sutton, Ohio Democrat
  3. 46% Rep. Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Republican
  4. 43% Rep. Jane Lakes Harman, California Democrat
  5. (Tied) 42% Rep. Tim Murphy, Pennsylvania Republican; 42% Rep. Pete Olson, Texas Republican

Murphy won his sixth term as Congressman in November.

2 YEARS AGO I EMAILED REP. MURPHY AND ASKED WHY HE WAS BECOMING A CAREER POLITICIAN. HIS OFFICE CALLED ME A WEEK LATER. IT WAS HIS OFFICE AND NOT HIM BUT I WAS TOLD THAT HE BELIEVES HE BEST KNOWS THE ISSUSES TO HELP HIS DISTRICT. I COULD TELL THAT THE PERSON WAS READING OFF A CARD . I DISAGREED AND TOLD HIM THAT IF THAT WAS HIS TRUE FEELING HE SHOULD START TRYING TO GET ALL OF THESE SPECIAL PERKS CUT OUT THAT POLITICIANS GIVING THEM SELVES. I TO BELIEVE IN TERM LIMITS BUT THE POLITICIANS WILL NEVER LET THAT HAPPEN,IN A WAY ITS OUR FAULT WE KEEP VOTING THEM IN. I ALWAYS VOTE FOR THE NEW GUY, THEN GET HIM OUT THE NEXT ELECTION.

Jaun, what does this have to do with the article? You may be exactly right about your facts, but it has zero to do with the article.
