Who is the son of Jim Moran, a Democratic Congressman from Virginia. Patrick has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend
Patrick B. Moran, 23, of Arlington County pleaded guilty to one count of simple assault, a misdemeanor. A D.C. Superior Court judge suspended a 90-day jail term and sentenced him to one year’s probation. Moran will also have to complete domestic-violence counseling and 50 hours of community service.
Domestic-violence counseling? How about we lock Patrick in a cage with a Navy Seal of Green Beret? I think that is fitting for a scumbag that does this…
According to a police account of the Dec. 1 incident contained in court documents, an officer saw Moran grab a woman by the back of her head and slam it into a trash can about 1:23 a.m. in front of the Getaway nightclub in Columbia Heights.
Of course, the good Congressman is trying to cover for his son
A e-mailed statement from Kelly Hofmann, Moran’s girlfriend, that was circulated by his father’s office after the plea had been entered called the incident one that “has been blown out of proportion” and said she was hurt when one of her high heels gave out and she fell into a trash can.
Another statement released by a spokesman for the congressman (D-Va.) also called the incident an “accident.”
Battered women often lie, or cover for their abuser, but, this time police officers witnessed that assault. Maybe she is even being pressured to do so now? Frankly, the police report does not back up her story
Patrick Moran was initially charged with felony assault. Hofmann was found bleeding “heavily” from her nose, according to court records, and her nose and right eye were “extremely” swollen.
Of course, we should also consider Patrick Moran’s recent disgarce
Moran resigned from his post as field director for his father’s reelection campaign in October after a conservative activist released an undercover video of Moran discussing potential ways to commit voter fraud. Arlington police and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II said they would investigate the incident, in which Moran was captured in the video suggesting that someone could use forged utility bills as proof of voter eligibility.
