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.
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.”Embarrassing situation? Oh come on! Now apparently the younger Moron is calling this an accident and the girlfriend is blaming a loose shoe heel for causing the injuries. This is all bull. Obviously, little Pat learned his violent behavior from his Dad, who allegedly beat his ex-wife and has threatened other Congressmen with violence. Jim Moron also put an 8 year old African-American child in a choke hold for the crime of admiring his car. That's in addition to Moron's history of anti-Semitism.
Yet the voters of VA District 8 keep re-electing this jerk? Just because he has a "D" by his name?
Aaron Worthing has some questions on this case that he addresses here.
What we got on 12-12-12 was a hefty dose of liberal logic. Liberals can assault women, sexually harass them, drive them off bridges to their deaths, and their union supporters can be violent and yell racial slurs at a black man. They're never held to answer for this, but it's conservatives and Tea Party types who are labeled "violent, racist, misogynists."
Tell me again about that "War on Women."
