The last time Patrick Moran was making headlines, it was for his appearance in an undercover video by James O’Keefe. Moran was seen assisting voter fraud, and was promptly fired from his father’s campaign. His father is Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia.
Moran and his girlfriend were fighting outside 14th Street bar The Getaway around 1:23 a.m. on Dec. 1, according to a police report, over Moran talking to another woman at the bar. Suddenly, Moran allegedly slammed his girlfriend’s head into the bar’s metal trash can cage.
After the attack, police described Moran’s girlfriend as “bleeding heavily from her nose and also observed that her nose and right eye were extremely swollen.” One of the ambulance technicians who transported her to Howard University Hospital told police that Moran appeared to have broken her nose and given her a skull fracture under her right eye.
Moran was arrested for felony domestic violence assault, but pleaded the charge down to simple assault today. He was sentenced to probation.
If Patrick Moran was the son of a Republican his actions would be used against every other Republican under the sun.
His father, by the way, is a real piece of work. Last time he was making headlines, it was for blaming the Democrats’ 2010 mid-term losses on racism. Today, he described his voter fraud enabling, girlfriend assaulting son as a “good kid.”
By the way, this is the third Democrat crime story of the day here on Tatler (the fourth, if you count the unions). Why, one is tempted to think that there’s a culture of corruption on that side of the aisle.
