Timothy Francis Murphy (born September 11, 1952) was the U.S. Representative for Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district, serving from 2003 until his resignation in October 2017. He is a member of the Republican Party. He previously served in the Pennsylvania Senate. He is a commander in the United States Navy Reserve.

In October 2017, Murphy announced that he would not seek re-election in 2018 due to revelations that during an affair he had urged his mistress to have an abortion despite his public anti-abortion stance.[2] On October 5, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Office announced Murphy would step down on October 21.[3]
