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...

Parents accuse Moran
of attacking child, 8

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.
