NRSC once again attacks Patrick Murphy over resume


Patrick Murphy’s resume is once again at the center of an attack ad.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a new ad Friday hitting Murphy over his resume. The 30-second spot, called “Revealed,” is meant to highlight questions about his professional experience.

“Patrick Murphy is an empty suit who couldn’t manage to tell the truth even if he had a permission slip from his father,” said Greg Blair, a spokesman for the NRSC, in a statement. “Murphy lied about being a small business owner, lied about being a CPA, and simply can’t be trusted to be honest with the people of Florida. His chronic falsehoods and embellishments have disqualified him from representing Florida families in any capacity.”

The advertisement  features portions of an CBS Miami report, which found Murphy did not meet the requirements to be a CPA in Florida and wasn’t a small business owner.

This is the second time the NRSC has run ads attacking Murphy over his resume. Earlier this month, PolitiFact rated the first ad “mostly false.”

The NRSC ad begins airing today in Tampa and Orlando markets. Murphy faces Republican Marco Rubio in November.
