Remember Patrick Moran? He’s the son of Dem Rep. Jim Moran who was forced to resign from his dad’s campaign after James O’Keefe exposed his affinity for voter fraud.

Today, it’s being reported that the congressman’s son was sentenced to probation for assaulting his girlfriend.

Moran allegedly slammed his girlfriend’s head into the bar’s metal trash can cage.

After the attack, police described Moran’s girlfriend as “bleeding heavily from her nose and also observed that her nose and right eye were extremely swollen.” One of the ambulance technicians who transported her to Howard University Hospital told police that Moran appeared to have broken her nose and given her a skull fracture under her right eye.

Rep. Moran’s reaction?

“Embarrassing”? The War on Women is coming from inside the Democrat’s house.

Forgive us, but we’re not buying the “embarrassment” shtick anyway.

Clearly Rep. Moran raised his son right.  Among his “greatest hits”: The corruptocrat congressman once had to apologize for shoving House colleague Rep. Cunningham.

He’s also reportedly been accused of smacking around his wife and laying his hands on someone else’s 8-year-old child. Like father, like son.

But, you know, Moran and son are Democrats, so this was probably a “mostly peaceful” girlfriend-beating, no doubt instigated by James O’Keefe, the tentacles of the Kochtopus or perhaps, the Jooooos.

Of course, the Morans would claim “selective editing” if there was video. Despicably, according to the police report, it’s her face that was selectively edited at the hands of Patrick Moran.

Let’s take a look at #MoranFamilyValues, shall we?

Patrick Moran’s conviction is just the latest woman-beating entry in the violent, corrupt album of the Moran family’s greatest hits.


This family of degenerates gets worse:

Via Washington City Paper:

“The situation was an accident,” Moran spokeswoman Anne Hughes writes in an email, adding that both Moran and his girlfriend testified to that in court. “Patrick didn’t hit or shove her.”

An accident.


Patrick Moran has plead guilty to simple assault and will face … probation. A slap on the wrist for pounding his girlfriend’s face? Damn, it feels good to be a Democrat.

A rightly disgusted Ace of Spades embarked on a beatdown of his own, absolutely pummeling the despicable palace guard media for burying the Moran story:



Patrick Moran’s girlfriend Kelly Hoffman issued a statement indicating her injuries were caused by a broken shoe.

This was an accident that has been blown out of proportion. The statements in the police report are inaccurate. Pat and I were arguing, one of my high heels gave out, and I fell into the side of a trashcan. On impact, I fractured my nose. False conclusions were made as a result. I hope our privacy will be respected.

Police witnessed the abuse, Moran the Younger pleaded guilty and his victim said it never happened?

The story beggars belief, but it certainly wouldn’t be the first time a domestic abuse victim was coerced, intimidated or threatened into excusing and minimizing what happened to her.

It’s a cliche for a reason and part of the cycle of abuse. Victims are terrorized into blaming themselves and go back to their abusers over and over. And now Patrick Moran is free to go back to abusing Kelly Hoffman, all with Papa Moran’s blessing. And he knows dear ol’ dad will be there to enable his abuse and cover for him when he’s caught.

But, you know, the Morans are totally for the Violence Against Women Act, so nothing to see here. Move along. Will it be an “accident” when she becomes another statistic?

What a despicable family.

Thank goodness the media are on it!

    C’mon people, let’s try to be humane about this. He’s a great guy. It’s just that Bush and Halliburten drove him over the edge. Bush lied, his girlfriends face got split open wide. To a Democrat, these things happen.

    • Tom Bannigan

      They must be admirers of the Kenedy family.

      • TugboatPhil

        And imitators. Hope none of the girlfriends go for a midnight drive in the Oldsmobile.

        • Jillane Kent

          She better also watch the trees, lest a Moran/Kennedy hybrid be hiding behind one with a golf club.

  • carla5731

    The entire Moran clan is disgusting. They should move back to Massachusetts where they learned the values that made them the people they are.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Chitcago would welcome them and they could make millions off the taxpayers.

  • GrumpyBruce

    So… “an embarassing situation”… is this like Benghazi being “not optimal” ?

    • BlueGood

      Clearly the “Morons” were/are still big fans of Ted Kennedy….

      Note to Kelly Hoffman….”DON’T go near the water with him”….


  • Tiffany Ross

    Isn’t that the kind of thing that is often learned from a parent….?

  • rivers

    “Accident”? I suppose Moran’s girlfriend walked into that trashcan?

    • Tom Bannigan

      If those trashcans were outlawed, he wouldn’t have been able to use it.

  • Jack Deth


    Here’s proof positive that being dumb as a sack of hammers as well as a mean, violent drunk are hereditary.

    I see about a year’s stay in re-hab. Or being transplanted in Boston politics.

    • mdtljt

      …please do NOT equate the MORON Boys with a sack of hammers…at least hammers are USEFUL tools…the Moron’s, not so much…they’re much more closely aligned with flaming sacks of poop on the front porch…

      • TugboatPhil

        Please don’t equate the Morans with flaming sacks of poop. At least you can stomp out a flaming sack of poop. The Morans just keep getting reelected….by people who want a flaming sack of poop.

        • mdtljt

          Point taken Tug!!! And so true about re-electing him. Of course, his congressional district is just across the Potomac from DC and the residents there regularly put Marion “B*tch Set Me Up” Barry in elected office…

          • TugboatPhil

            I hear you. NoVA is getting almost as crazy as Massachusetts with who they think is a capable candidate.

    • RadicalRebelWhoMeToo

      Naaah! Ol Patty Boy would of had to kill her to get into MA politics.

  • Steve_J

    FTA: “The situation was an accident,” Moran spokeswoman Anne Hughes writes in an email, adding that both Moran and his girlfriend testified to that in court. “Patrick didn’t hit or shove her.”
    What would’ve happened to her had she not testified to that in court?

  • coreopsis has set in

    “The situation was an accident”

    Technically, true. Throwing her body down – that was on purpose. Her landing on sharp metal with all that messy blood and stuff was an accident. Where’s the fun in brutalizing someone who’s barely conscious enough to appreciate you?

  • Shawn Smith

    I’ve never seriously considered hitting a girl before; it’s just not done. If I’m ever seriously tempted, though, I’ll just switch to the Democratic party first, thus ensuring that no one will hold me responsible.

    • $21367552

      There are plenty of men of both parties and none at all, and at all backgrounds that get off easy peasy for domestic violence. But instead of being mad at the system, sure feel free to take this as an opportunity to play party politics.

      • Shawn Smith

        If this were the son of a Republican congressman, this would be all over the news. In this case, it’s not showing up on any of the major news channels. Try for yourself searching moran skull fracture limited to any major network. *Nothing*. The left loves to talk about a war on women waged by conservatives, but is happily silent about abuse from its own side.

        I’ll just line this example next to Ted Kennedy (murderer) and Bill Clinton (rapist).

        • Eric

          More examples of how the left abuses women please. If you can;t back up facts (like voting records) you are just blowing hot air. This is the same BS argument you guys throw at homosexuality. Every pedophile man that abuses boys, you call g
          ay. This is ridiculous and you know it. A child molester is a child molester and a violent woman abuser is a violent woman abuser. Sexual orientation and party affiliation have NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

          • Shawn Smith

            So a man who has sexual relations with a boy is not homosexual? He is a pedophile as well, but he is a *homosexual* pedophile.

            And the bigger point here is not about what Moran did, but about everyone else’s reaction to it. Patrick Moran (like his daddy) assaulted his significant other, and has experienced no consequences for it. You’d think a party that decries a “war on women” would take assaults on women more seriously.

            Oh, and Bill Clinton was *at the very least* a serial sexual harasser, and Ted Kennedy was *at the very least* guilty of negligent manslaughter, but the Democratic party not only tolerates them, but makes heroes of them. The liberal media happily brushes over their crimes and people who don’t go out of their way to find out more never even hear about this. Please show me a parallel example on the right.

            Oh, and Barack Obama is a racist.

          • Shawn Smith

            Also, considering the relatively low percentage of homosexuals in society (despite the left’s lies, between 2-3%) the number of gay pedophiles is even more disturbing.

        • $21367552

          OK, just did a google news search for Patrick Moran,

          and yeah except for the Washington Post, CBS, NBC, Salon, Jezebel, Puffington Host this is totally being ignored by the “liberal media”.

          • Shawn Smith

            The only result I see about this from the first page is CBS *local*. Site-specific searches of NPR, NBC, CNN & ABC reveal *nothing*.

  • mdtljt

    I’m so GLAD Rep. MorOn and his degenerate son are getting what for…I had to suffer his Specialness when I lived in Alexandria, VA…yeesh…

  • digitalPimple

    And calls for him to be replaced by the Dems… in… 3… 2… never.

  • SpinMeNot

    Wasn’t this the same father-son duo that got caught on tape (well, the son) discussing how to perpetrate voter fraud?

    Yeah, that is what I thought.

    Any other questions?

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    Yeah, that stuff “accidentally” happens all the time. I had to call the police on this guy one time because he wouldn’t stop pounding his face against my clenched fists.

  • Booker

    Man this is vicious. Fractured her skull? Sheesh.

    • TugboatPhil

      Sadly for her, the attacker is a Dem. The DNC talking points will say this was her fault.

      • lainer51

        yes, the garbage can was a conservative and flew up and smacked her in the face…

    Why I’m not on twitter. Just a bunch of people yelling at each other. Stupid.

  • nc

    Probation for this kind of assault is like saying he is normally such a nice boy who unfortunately found himself in a weird, unusual pickle. Coulda happened to anyone. Give the boy a chance.

    (I’ll stop being sarcastic now.)

    The “girlfriend,” however, should run for her life.

  • $29520529

    I am sure she voted for Obama, so she can stop complaining about the transformation of America, she just didn’t know that meant the transformation of her face through free Obamacare

    The story is buried everywhere:Google, Reuters, can’t even find on the AP. Did it even make the broadcast news? Just disgusting what the media gets up to.

    You guys misspelled “Moron” :)

    I’ll bet the gf’s dad thinks its a bit more than ‘an embarrassing situation’.

  • Conservative First

    I wonder what Bob Costas’ opinion of the situation is. It’s this damn Trashcan Culture!

  • TocksNedlog

    What talent! An advocate for voter fraud AND a woman-beater?
    He’s a real renaissance maggot.

  • AttackOfTheKillerTomatos

    Aaand here we have a great example of what the country’s lowest form of scum is. Yet, they get a pass for their bad behavior, all because they are Democrats. NO ONE should get a pass for violence against a woman. No one should get a pass for violent behavior, period.

    Of course, in this case, when it comes to a woman beater, I would be 100% okay with a woman whooping this guy’s ass. See how the piece of scum likes a taste of his own medicine and what better way to give it to him, than to have a woman put him in his place. I’d even want it to be televised, so he can be further humiliated.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    She may have been leaning to the right, which makes it okay to get slammed to the left. Rep. Moran said it was an accident that Pat threw his girlfriend away like trash, or something. #HonestMistake #WarOnWomen

    This is part of the REAL “War on Women”.

    I would say that it is metaphor for the Democratic party. They abuse their entire constituency, and yet the voters return to them.

    Patrick Moran joins Ted Kennedy DSK and the countless rich white men who receive little or no punishment for violence against women. No surprise here. If Herman Cain or Justice Clarence Thomas did that to Ginger White or Virginia Thomas they’d be looking at life in prison.

  • Liz

    If she won’t stand up for herself, then she deserves what she gets. I have no sympathy for her at all!!! But I would love to see her bank account to see the large cash deposit made the next day!!!
