Rep. Jim Moranís (D-Va)Son Guilty of Beating Up His Girlfriend in Columbia Heights (D.C.)
Washington City Paper ^ | Wednesday, December 12, 2012 | Will Sommer

Posted on 12/12/2012 10:16:48 AM PST by kristinn

Patrick Moran, the son of Democratic Virginia Rep. Jim Moran, is having a bad year. First, undercover video operative James O'Keefe caught him on tape half-heartedly discussing how to commit voter fraud...while acting as the field director for his dad's campaign. Now Moran's taken a more criminal turn, pleading guilty earlier today to allegedly beating up his girlfriend outside a Columbia Heights bar.

SNIP

In a statement to Washington City Paper, Rep. Moran described his son and his girlfriend as "good kids."

"I hope their privacy will be respected," the congressman said. "They look forward to putting this embarrassing situation behind them.”

He is now qualified to run and win office in the democratic party and will be appointed a high chairmanship.

That’s some thug son you haven’t brought up, Congressman. A police report is not a “private matter,” you dim wit.

So attacking a politician because of the actions of their kids is now O.K? How soon some forget (or ignore) the Palin saga.

Ummm, let's see...the politician calls a violent attack by his son on a woman an "embarrassing situation."

The politician himself has a violent past, including assaulting a child. The son was caught suggestion vote fraud while working for the politician's reelection campaign.

Now, what was that you were saying...

Huh? Huh? This creep Moran said his son’s brutal action was an “embarrassing situation”. He wants his baby boy to get on with his life, ‘cause he’s a “good kid” (ha! aren’t they all?) The rat father dismisses the girl’s broken nose and possible concussion as an embarrassing situation. The “good kid” was previously caught on tape giving tips on how to commit voter fraud.

So, in answer to your question, YES! It is okay to attack that creep father.

My sister used to work for a lawyer named Moran.

Every time she put his name into a document the spell checker would offer “moron” as a correction.

I told her she could add the name to the dictionary so it would stop doing that, and she said “no, I kinda like it”

"I hope their privacy will be respected," the congressman said.

Hmmm. The Constitution says the right to privacy allows one to kill an inconvenient child up until the age of 9 months, so the same right to privacy should be good enough to allow one to beat their girlfriend.

Besides, he's a Democrat. Democrats don't have to worry about the media respecting their privacy.

Wonder when Bob Costas will denounce the son’s ability to make fists. “If the younger Moran did not have the ability to make fists, his girlfriend would be able to see out both of her eyes.”

Parents accuse Moran
of attacking child, 8
excerpt

Mr. Moran, who owns a 1999 black Toyota Avalon, conceded he was upset when he came into the center carrying Michael under his arm, but denies he attacked the child and cursed at him.

“I’m sure I was beet red,” he said. “But I don’t remember using any profanity.” Mr. Moran, 54, is in his fifth term, and his district covers Alexandria, Arlington and the southeastern parts of Fairfax County. He has, in the past, lost his temper in some well-publicized outbursts. Among them:

Last June, his wife, Mary, called police to their home because he pushed her. Mr. Moran told police he pushed her in self-defense when she came toward him, but Mrs. Moran disputed that version of events. There was no evidence of assault, and charges weren’t filed. The day after the incident, Mrs. Moran filed for divorce. Mr. Moran filed for divorce about three weeks later.

In 1998, during the revelations about the president’s infidelities, he reportedly told the first lady that if he were her brother, he would have punched President Clinton in the nose.

In 1995, he had to apologize after pushing Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, California Republican, out of the House floor into a cloakroom. More than a dozen Capitol Police officers were called to restore order.

In 1994, Arlington police were summoned after the congressman, who was campaigning for re-election, reportedly grabbed a man by the front of his shirt for distributing anti-Moran leaflets deemed in poor taste.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to reject the notion that the federal government is populated with a significant criminal element.
