Rep. Jim Moran
Patrick Moran, the son of Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), pleaded guilty on Wednesday to beating the crap out of his girlfriend. Well, those are my words. The Washington City Paper reported it as “brutally assaulting,” but I’m pretty sure that’s the same as beating the snot out of someone.
According to the police report, on December 1, Patrick and his girlfriend were at a bar in Washington, D.C., when they started arguing over his talking to another girl. Patrick then slammed her head into a metal trash can cage outside the bar. Later at Howard University Hospital, the lady was diagnosed with a broken nose and a skull fracture under her right eye.
