Tea Party Patriots to Pat Murphy, "Prove it"

Rob Boyson from Levittown, and Philadelphia Tea Party Patriot - Lower Bucks coordinator, has a question or two for Patrick Murphy, the incumbent Democrat Congressman from Pennsylvania's 8th district.

Boyson wants to know where exactly are the 3,000 jobs Murphy touted creating in two recent mailings to constituents of the district.  He also wants to know why some voters in the district were kept from receiving the save-the-date announcement of a "Community Job Fair" Murphy will host.

In a release from the Lower Bucks group and Philadelphia Tea Party Patriots, Boyson claims the targeted mailing aims to take advantage of Murphy's incumbent status by using tax-payer funded mailers to promote campaign events:
“ Think about it … can these two brochures be taken as campaign items use to promote an incumbent candidate’s 2010 re-election bid?”
If the mailings went to only Democrat voters, it sure seems like Patrick wants his 'jobs fair' to be anything but fair.

As for the 3,000 created...
According to the Department of Labor Statistics unemployment in Bucks County rose 16% (from 7.3% to 8.5%) between March of 2009 and March of 2010.

If you are creating jobs Mr. Murphy, you're doing a horrific job at it.
