It seems Pat Moran didn’t inherit just his father’s political woes but his personal ones too. Pat Moran just pleaded guilty to assault for slamming his girlfriend’s head into a metal trash can cage outside a DC bar.
Pat gave his girlfriend a skull fracture and a broken nose. He was charged with felony assault but the sentence was reduced to probation after a plea deal.
It is our policy to refrain from tabloid-type stories unless it becomes legitimate to address them when the Morans bring yet another round of embarrassment to the 8th District. It’s an unfortunate story that we’d prefer not to deal with, but this is the second time in as many months that Pat Moran has been accused of a crime.
Jim Moran really needs to consider whether his time in Congress is worthwhile anymore – his behavior in the public spotlight has not only affected him personally but his wives and children too.
