Last October, Patrick Moran had to resign from his father’s campaign after this happened:

Providing yet another feather for James O’Keefe’s cap obviously hasn’t been sitting well with the younger Moran, as WUSA reports:

Patrick Moran, the son of Rep. Jim Moran, was sentenced in a D.C. court after pleading guilty to simple assault, according to court records.

Moran was sentenced to 90 days with 90 days suspended. He will have to do community service and complete a domestic violence intervention program.

According to the Washington City Paper, Moran slammed his girlfriend’s head against a metal trash can cage during a fight at a bar in Columbia Heights, causing injuries to her nose and face.

Is that all? That’s not so bad, assuming he hasn’t suddenly become a Republican.

So… this is James O’Keefe’s fault too, right?

Update: Rep. Moran says, “I hope their privacy will be respected. They look forward to putting this embarrassing situation behind them.” Yeah, it must be pretty embarrassing when your boyfriend smashes your face into a trash can.
