Rep. Moran: Son’s Attack on Girlfriend “An Accident”

Update, 4:35 p.m.: Bolstering Rep. Moran's statement, Patrick Moran's girlfriend has blamed her injuries on a broken high heel.

Virginia Rep. Jim Moran's office has another statement about his son's arrest for assaulting his girlfriend in Columbia Heights earlier this month. And it turns out it was all an accident, according to Moran, despite his son's guilty plea to assault.

"The situation was an accident," Moran spokeswoman Anne Hughes writes in an email, adding that both Moran and his girlfriend testified to that in court. "Patrick didn't hit or shove her."

Hughes claims that only Patrick Moran and his girlfriend were around to see the alleged attack. "They were the only two people who witnessed the scene," writes Hughes. "In that sense, their statements are the only ones that matter."

That would contradict the police report, which describes both a Metropolitan Police Department sergeant and an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration investigator seeing Moran slam his girlfriend's head into a trash can cage outside the Getaway, a 14th Street NW bar.

"They are both very embarrassed by the situation, which involved drinking," Hughes continues. "And they are looking to move past it, and ask for their privacy to be respected."

    With Dems like these, who needs enemies?

    Another load of donkey $h!t from the Moron

    The Nixon administration had a term -- our prior statement in this regard is no longer operative -- that comes to mind here. Some congresscritter's media advisor is getting his butt kicked. Yet another form of violence.

    If it was an accident, why did he plead guilty to a charge at all?

    A politicians son isn't going to have any trouble finding competent legal defense.

    Honey, move out of VA and get yourself a book deal.

    Oh, of course. That sounds perfectly reasonable. I usually plead guilty to assault after accidents happen in my vicinity.

    He and Chris Brown went out for beers later...

    One law for Democrats, one law for the rest of us peons. It must be nice to be a scum son of a scum Democrat. How much does anyone want to bet that Moran will threaten the city of Columbia Heights to get this police report scrubbed? After that happens, expect the younger Moran to appeal the conviction on the basis that there is no evidence.

    This is the kind of people you elect DC, VA, MD.

    Good work. Way to go...

    It's okay, drez. Democrats are allowed to smash women into trash cans. No one cares. No one in the media will follow up on this.

    So he smashed her orbital bone. Big whoop. It's not like Moran was against paying for her birth control or something.

    At least when the Kennedys attacked women, they did it with a sense of style.

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...with a family like this, I pity the Virginia consitutents of Jim Moran.

    Today's WaPo dead tree edition indicates the young "gentleman" was represented by court-appointed counsel. Really??? He qualifies as "not being able to afford legal representation".....
