The Central Florida Post has learned that Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy attempted to hijack a Sanford Chamber meeting, citing “security concerns.”

With everyone buzzing about these “brave” members of the press who take pot shots at the President and his supporters through their “courageous” op-eds about “protecting” journalism… we thought today would be a good day to discuss Stephanie Murphy’s latest abuse of power.
We have been extremely critical of Stephanie Murphy’s elitism and connections to the political establishment of the Democratic Party, including her infamous fundraiser at a swanky DC steakhouse during Hurricane Irma. Though Ms. Murphy refuses to answer basic questions about her ritzy steakhouse fundraiser and how she was able to get in and out of the state during a state of emergency, her staff is working overtime to strangle coverage of her running away from tough questions.
You have likely seen how we have confronted Murphy on camera for her ties to for-profit college Full Sail, her rampant elitism, and for colluding with Facebook to permanently delete our first video confronting her for fundraising with top Democrats during Hurricane Irma.
Now, the Central Florida Post has obtained emails showing how her staff fabricated threats and security concerns, claiming that Capitol Police had advised them to back out of Murphy’s planned speech to the Sanford Chamber of Commerce on August 15th.
Murphy, who begged the group to be featured at the meeting, abruptly started crowing about security concerns and demanding law enforcement protection. She wanted to control who was in attendance and use local police officers as her personal security force to eject anyone asking questions that she did not like.
When her demands were not met, she reneged on her commitment to speak like a petulant child.
“After consulting with U.S. Capitol Police and due to unaddressed security concerns, we will unfortunately need to reschedule the event. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to continuing our conversation. If our office can be of any assistance for you or your members, please do not hesitate to reach out.”
Lauren Grabell Allen, District Director
U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy (FL-07)
225 E Robinson, #525, Orando, FL 32801
These demands came days after we confronted Congresswoman Murphy on camera following a congressional forum where she attempted to have Orlando Police Department arrest me for daring to ask her questions that she had no credible answers for.
You can watch that video below.
Local businessman Don Kirkendall, who has attempted to get straight answers out of Murphy at previous public events to no avail, felt “robbed.”
“This is typical Murphy. She refuses to stand in front of voters and take questions about her wild spending.”
Calls to the Capitol Police turned up no evidence of credible threats and local law enforcement declined to confirm any communication from Capitol Police, which is common place when actual threats exist within the district.
Behind the scenes, her staff did name me as the main security concern, alleging that I was a “security threat.” Of course this is pure hogwash, but Stephanie Murphy thinks that police officers exist to serve her political interests, which shows how much contempt and disrespect she has for the law enforcement community.
What security risk do I pose? Is she afraid of gay people? The truth?
All this coming from someone who parrots the tired talking points of the mainstream media and establishment Democrats who cry out for the media to confront President Trump at every turn. All this comes from a person who has failed to denounce Maxine Waters calls for citizens to harass members of the Trump administration in public.
If Stephanie Murphy will fabricate threats and security concerns to dodge public events, what else will she or has she lied about?
Murphy will face true progressive Chardo Richardson in the Democratic primary for Florida’s 7th congressional district on August 28th.
