|Congressman's Kid Pleads Guilty to Assaulting Girlfriend|
|[Weekly Standard] Democratic congressman Jim Moran's|
Democrat Congressman-for-Life from Northern Virginia...
son, Patrick Moran,
This was the guy Project Veritas got on tape telling how to set up a little voter fraud.
has pleaded guilty to beating his girlfriend.
I doubt that'll actually hurt his political career. By the time Dad retires in 2066 it'll be a youthful peccadillo.
The assualt outside a nightclub left Moran's girlfriend with bloody nose and a fractured skull.
Not just a little game of slapsy with her, but a full-fledged thumping. He must feel ever so manly...
"MPD Sgt. Paul, S from the Fifth District Vice unit along with ABRA investigator Stewart, Craig observed a white male, later found to be known as D-1 (Moran) grab a white female by the back of her head with his hand and slam her head into the metal trash can cage in front of the nightclub 'The Getaway'.
So he didn't notice the vice cop unobtrusively hanging around when he thumped her. The vice cop must not have realized he was the son of a Congressman-for-Life, mistaking him instead for a frisky pimp. No doubt the cop's career is over, since the arrest can't be undone...
After both parties were separated investigation revealed that the female (CW-1) was D-1's girlfriend
"Yeah! She's my girlfriend, so piss off! I wanna call my Dad!"
and they had been in an argument inside the nightclub over D-1 talking to another female inside the club. CW-1 stated that she and D-1 have been together for six months," the report continues.
"Yeah! Six months! Wanna see my bruises?"
"Shuddup! You love me, baby!"
"People like you are the reason undercover cops don't carry nightsticks, kid!"
"The argument filtered outside
"No, you ain't!"
where D-1 then assaulted CW-1. Officer Murphy (4041) and Officer Anderson (Curfew 42) responded to assist.
Officer Murphy observed CW-1 to be bleeding heavily from her nose
"Jeez! She looks like she's been kicked in the face by a horse!"
and also observed that her nose and right eye were extremely swollen.
"Did yer nose always point to the left like that, miss?"
"Then I think it's busted!"
Ambulance 11 responded to the scene
for treatment and transportation to Howard Hospital.
I'm guessing that's Howard University Hospital, rather than Howard County, which is pretty far from there...
The medical technician advised Officer Murphy that CW-1's nose looked to be broken and that her right socket could possibly be fractured which is actually considered a skull fracture.
"It's an eye socket! How can you consider that a skull fracture!"
"Shuddup, kid! Eye sockets are on the skull that's why."
"I wanna call my Dad!"
"D-1 was placed under arrest for Felony Assault, Domestic Violence
"You have the right to remain silent..."
"I wanna call my Dad!"
and was transported to the Fourth District for processing.
"Book him, Muldoon!"
Officer Murphy who is a certified crime scene technician processed the crime scene."
"Jones, get me a cast of that trash bin! Jackson, [FLASH!] take some pictures!"
The Washington City Paper reports that the younger Moran plead guilty to the assault.
Good idea, since he did it in front of a vice cop and they got pictures of the bloody trash bin.
Wonder if I'd get probation if they had that kind of evidence on me. On second thought, I don't wonder at all...
Patrick Moran was fired from his father's campaign earlier this year
"Son, you're fired! Pack your spit and get out!"
"I wanna call Mom!"
after a video exposed him of conspiring to commit voter fraud.
"But really, I was just joshing!"
"You didn't look like you were joshing!"
"Owww! My eye socket!"
"I hope their privacy will be respected," Congressman Moran told the paper. "They look forward to putting this embarrassing situation behind them."
"Hi! This is Tiffany! I'm not at my phone and if you're Patrick Moron I never will be again! Please leave a message at the tone!"
"You love me, baby! Call me!"
CW-1? Things got a little out of hand. It's just this damn war and that lying son of a bitch
|Virginia AG on Patrick Moran: 'No Indication That Any Offense Took Place'|
Moran resigned as his father's campaign field director Wednesday, after the video -- produced by the Project Veritas activist group -- was published online.
The video shows the congressman's son engaging a discussion -- which he did not initiate -- about forging utility bills, which can be used as voter identification at the polls in Virginia. They'd "have to look legit," Patrick tells the undercover .
Cuccinelli said he does not expect to be asked by the State Board of Elections to investigate Moran.
Asked why, he responded, "Well first of all it's not my decision. Second of all because unlike take the Shenandoah Valley situation (a case involving voter registration fraud), we literally had voter registration forms that were pulled out of the trash. I mean the offense had already occurred," Cuccinelli said Thursday on the WMAL radio show "Mornings on the Mall" with Brian Wilson.
"Here they (Moran and the ) were talking about how one might commit an offense, but there's no indication that any offense took place. That's a major, major difference. We don't go after people because we don't like their openness to these sorts of things. We go after people for criminal violations when they actually commit violations," he said.
Cuccinelli also said the Attorney General's office "does not have authority to investigate" Moran, unless it is asked to do so by the State Board of Elections.
Asked why he doesn't have the authority to investigate, Cuccinelli replied, "Because we have lousy enforcement laws, in my humble opinion, related to our election laws. Now -- having said that -- when the State Board of Elections votes unanimously as they did yesterday to ask us to investigate something--they asked us to investigate the trashing of voter registration forms in the Shenandoah Valley-- then we are brought into a case but not until then."
He continued, "Right now, the only person who will have any authority over this is the Commonwealth Attorney, the elected prosecutor for Arlington County, because I believe this happened in Arlington."
In a statement issued Wednesday night, Patrick Moran said, "In reference to the 'O'Keefe' video, at no point have I, or will I ever endorse any sort of illegal or unethical behavior. At no point did I take this person seriously. He struck me as being unstable and joking, and for only that reason did I humor him.
"In hindsight, I should have immediately walked away, making it clear that there is no place in the electoral process for even the suggestion of illegal behavior: joking or not," he said. "In regards to my position on the campaign, I have stepped down because I do not want to be a distraction during this year's critical election."

|Rep. Moran's son resigns from father's campaign amid voter fraud scandal|
|Patrick Moran, the son of Virginia Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) and the field director for his father's reelection bid, resigned abruptly Wednesday after a video linked him to voter fraud. |
The video -- released earlier in the day by Project Veritas, a conservative organization headed by the Republican activist James O'Keefe -- revealed that the younger Moran had weighed options for helping an undercover operative cast votes on behalf of 100 people who allegedly weren't planning to vote.
"There will be a lot of voter protection, so, if they just have, you know, the utility bill or bank statement -- bank statement would obviously be tough ... but faking a utility bill would be easy enough," Moran says, apparently referring to options for getting around Virginia's voter ID laws.
Moran's campaign issued a statement confirming the congressman's son had stepped down.
"Patrick is well liked and was a well-respected member of the campaign team. This incident, however, was clearly an error in judgment. The campaign has accepted Patrick's resignation, effective immediately," the statement said.
The resignation comes just a day after Rep. Moran and two other Virginia Democrats -- Reps. Gerry Connolly and Bobby Scott -- had urged the Justice Department to launch an investigation into Strategic Allied Consulting, a GOP firm linked to separate allegations of voter registration fraud in Virginia and Florida.
