ICYMI: Patrick Moran issued his own statement on the situation last week:
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 unstable. I thought he was joking, for only that reason did I humor him.
In retrospect, I should have just walked away, making it clear that there is no place in the electoral process for even the suggestion of illegal behavior, joking or not.
In regards to my position on the campaign, I stepped down because I do not want to be a distraction during this year’s critical election.
How utterly insulting to citizens of the 8th District and Americans everywhere (and anyone with half a brain). What kind of creep would talk extensively and in detail with someone who they suspect is unstable about how to commit a felony just to humor them, just to joke around? And if Pat is so concerned about not wanting to interfere with a critical election, why would he take 20 minutes in the middle of the day less than a month out from the election to joke around?
excuse lie is a classic case of “my dog ate my homework”, but that comparison insults the intelligence of young children who have used that excuse. A first grader could tell that Pat’s claim is totally bogus. And only a first grader would expect anyone to buy it. Pat graduated from Yale this year but he sure doesn’t seem too bright.
This statement about the video is almost as outrageous as the video itself.
