Rep. Murphy (FL-07) is the first Vietnamese-American woman to serve in Congress, and the first woman to represent this district. She is a former educator, businesswoman, and national security specialist; she received the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Civilian Service for her work in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. In Congress, Murphy serves on the House Ways and Means Committee.
In office, Murphy helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Murphy introduced H.R. 3529, Achieving Lasting Electoral Reforms on Transparency and Security Act, which requires state and local officials and Members of Congress to be notified if the federal government has credible evidence of intrusion into an election system.
