Remember Patrick Moran? He’s the guy who resigned from his dad’s re-election campaign last October when he was caught on tape providing instructions on how to commit vote fraud. Now he’s in the news again. From the Washington Post:
The son of Rep. James P. Moran on Wednesday pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend, admitting to a role in an alcohol-fueled incident outside a Northwest Washington nightspot this month.
Patrick B. Moran, 23, of Arlington County pleaded guilty to one count of simple assault, a misdemeanor. …
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.
I’m not buying the girlfriend’s story about a broken high heel causing her to fall. Isn’t that the kind of thing battered women have always said? Feminists, where are you?
