Democrat Jim Moran's Son Pleads Guilty to Fracturing Girlfriend's Skull

War. On. Women.

Remember Patrick Moran? He's the son of Democratic Rep. Jim Moran and the guy who was caught on video earlier this year encouraging voter fraud while working for his father's re-election campaign. Today, he pleaded guilty in court for slamming his girlfriend's head into a metal trash can which fractured her skull. He's lucky he didn't take out her eye.

As first reported by Washington City Paper, Patrick Moran and his girlfriend were arguing outside a bar on 14th Street on Dec. 1, when, according to a police report, an officer saw Moran "slam her head into the metal trash can cage."

The report notes that Moran's girlfriend was "bleeding heavily from her nose and ... her nose and right eye were extremely swollen." She was transported to Howard University Hospital, and a medical technician told police her nose appeared to be broken and her right eye socket could be fractured.

Moran was sentenced to 90 days in jail which was suspended by the judge, and one year of probation. If he violates his probation he will serve the 90 days. He must also enter a domestic violence intervention program, pay a $50 fine to a domestic violence program and complete 50 hours of community service.

And what brilliant thing did Rep. Moran say in light of the incident?

Rep. Moran told City Paper his son and his son's girlfriend are "good kids" in an "embarrassing situation."

Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton and now Patrick Moran. It never ends.

Rep. Moron roughed up a little 8 year boy claiming the youngster wanted to carjack him, having told Moron, "I like your car."
This appears to be a very sick family.

$50??? Are you kidding me? A speeding ticket is several times that amount. And no time served.

Just another example of the "elites" looking out for each other.

Sounds sort of like the injuries sustained by George Zimmerman while out profiling for a young black to gun down like a rabid dog (/S).

If the metal trash can had not been there this would not have happened . . . .

Charged with “simple assault”...no jail time...$50 fine...50 hours “community service”.A fractured skull can be a *life threatening* injury.Somehow I suspect that if I ever fracture a woman's skull I'll get 5 years under the “Violence Against Women Act” of 2010.

He's lucky he didn't take out her eye.

So, he's the lucky one???

How about wording it to reflect the seriousness of the situation, which is that:

She's lucky he didn't take out her eye.

She is the victim, and she is the one that suffered the attack and injury, and she's the one that's lucky that, it didn't take her life.

He's lucky only in the fact that, he's the son of a congressman, and probably got off easier than any other person because of who he is related to.

Of course, if John Boehner had a spine (I know, your laughing too) he’d suspend the Congressman and file removal papers with the ethics committee.

Like the Commonwealth of MA, the Commonwealth of VA has greatly disintegrated in recent years. There a Moran is worth a Kennedy in MA. I would imagine VA is trying to apologize for having voted for Nixon all three times he ran for President.

Kas, had the young Moran been a Republican, this would have indeed been a serious incident worthy of months of full press coverage.

As you of all people should by now know, that since the young Moran is a Democrat, all he was doing was offering a young lady a remarkable opportunity for personal growth through physically intimate personal interaction. The judge was correct in chastising the young Moran for somewhat excessive zeal, even if correctly directed.

Next case.

Okay, I’m an idiot...I got Moran confused with someone else. His thug son isn’t in Congress and I thought this scum was.

Old age sucks! lol
