Was this the same guy who was caught on tape giving advice on how to get away with voting fraud?

He´s a punk thug like his father. Apple and tree distance, etc.. I am positive that the MSM will allow this fine couple to "put this behind them" by eliminating any reference to it in any coverage.

Moran´s a criminal just like his son.

Well, Moran said his son was sorry and embarrassed by the voter fraud thing (and in the local interview, practically tousled his hair and punched him affectionately on the chin). And the congressman said that the son and the girlfriend are both "good kids" so I guess there´s nothing to see.

Moran is my congressman. I expect sympathy from L-Dotters. If he´s not the worst of all of them, he´s in the top (bottom) 10.

Strange that none of these articles mentions that this knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing troglodyte was 6´5" and 290 when he was Yale´s Defensive Lineman of the Year. Recent pictures don´t indicate that he´s lost any of that height or weight since those days.
Every time one of my fellow prior-service Leathernecks breaks the law, journalists always cry, "Ex-Marine!" this or that.
Don´t get me wrong - no man, regardless of size, should ever raise his hand to a woman.
(Unless, of course, the woman in question happens to be Jane Fonda.)

"I hope their privacy will be respected," Congressman Moran told the paper. "They look forward to putting this embarrassing situation behind them."

"Embarrassing" is coming out of the men´s room with your zipper at half-mast. Breaking someone´s eye-socket and nose is outside the "embarrassment" Venn Diagram Circle. Sorry.

And if you want privacy, don´t do what these mutts, pere and fils, have done. Criminal behavior forfeits privacy.

Let´s take a long, close look at his history when deciding the sentence, ´K, Judgie?

And, Rep. Moran? Nice job rearing the kid. Nice job.

#6, #7: Wow. Sincere condolences. Did you guys both lose bets and have to move there? How does the word "recall" sound?

#13: I didn´t stay at a Holiday Inn, but it´s not a stretch to think self-hate, self-worth issues are in the mix. Sad.

"their" privacy? Deflecting the blame, are we, Congressman? And assaulting women (or anyone) isn´t merely an "embarrassing situation", it´s criminal.

Nice - voter fraud AND woman-beating. Two of the few things I consider lower than whale-dung.

And, I don´t have a whole helluva lot of sympathy for the kind of stupid voter who elects Jim Moran, or the kind of stupid woman who elects to be with his son, but I suppose I wish better for them both.

And what is it with some ladies? I find it hard enough to believe when they go with a powerful bad-guy, but I kind of understand the attraction from a biological standpoint, at least.

But the idiot wastrel son of a powerful man? C´mon, really girls? Y´all can do better than that... this kid is like the character Bernard from "Things to Do in Denver When You´re Dead."

And it sounds like she caught an orbital fracture - that´s a major league swing Junior took, there. He oughta be in jail. Whaddya figure that´ll happen, boys and girls?

A cracked scull should warrant assault charges. Where are all the NOW hags telling us what a terrible thing it is to excuse violence against women as an "embarrassing incident?"

But I´ll say that Dana Perino is right. This woman´s judgment is bad if she chooses to be with anyone related to Jim Moran or who calls himself a Democrat.

The story has gone completely quiet. At one point it sounded like the girlfriend was trying to say her heel got caught and she fell. Big sigh. Why would she want to be with this jerk. Gotta agree with poster 24 on this. If she´s going to sell out, at least sell out for a higher bid.

#17 -- thanks. I moved here 20+ years ago, when northern VA was still sane. We even had a Republican congressman. Now I´m invested here (job, condo...) but moving away is getting more and more appealing.

Authorities are investigating after the estranged wife of Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson accused him of domestic violence over the weekend, a charge a spokeswoman for the congressman is blasting as a “frivolous accusation” meant to damage his reputation. A spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Fox News Tuesday a report in The Orlando Sentinel that the office is conducting a domestic-violence battery investigation into the accusations submitted in a report Sunday by Lolita Grayson. The paper reported that Lolita Grayson, who filed from divorce from the congressman in January after nearly 24 years

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

The D.C. Council on Tuesday approved legislation to remove criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana in the nation’s capital, joining 17 other states that have some form of decriminalization. The bill adopted on a 10-1 vote will make possession of an ounce or less of marijuana punishable by a civil fine of $25, yet preserves laws making the public smoking of marijuana a criminal offense. An initial version of the bill would have also decriminalized public smoking of the drug but council members amended the legislation at the request of Mayor Vincent C. Gray and Police Chief

The deep cuts underscore the difficulty the retailer of electronic parts and gadgets has had adapting to modern trends in the business. While the closings will shrink RadioShack’s footprint, they leave a still-sprawling operation with 4,000 locations, including franchisees, and a challenging fix-it job ahead

While announcing a new initiative last Tuesday to curtail junk food marketing in public schools, Obama noted that students from Marshall High School in Fairfax had helped write a song about more nutritious meal choices. Obama said the song, called “wRap,” shows how much students care about what they eat. Obama then recited her favorite lyrics from the song: “If I’m gonna help my brain come to fruition, I’m gonna have

President Obama unveiled a $3.9 trillion budget plan on Tuesday that drops earlier proposals to cut future Social Security benefits and seeks new money for infrastructure, education and jobs training -- handing Democrats running for re-election a political playbook but angering Republicans who called the blueprint "irresponsible." The plan sent to Congress hammers the president´s theme of "opportunity" for Americans. "It is a road map for creating jobs with good wages and expanding opportunity for Americans," Obama said in Washington. But Obama´s almost $4 trillion budget plan is likely to have a short shelf life. Coming just three months after

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.
