Rep. Jim Moranís Son Resigns Over James OíKeefe Video
tpm ^ | 10-24-12

Posted on 10/24/2012 2:55:33 PM PDT by doug from upland

Patrick Moran, son of Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA), resigned from his father's campaign on Wednesday after conservative activist James O'Keefe released a video that appears to show him offering advice to an undercover videographer who claimed to want to commit voter fraud.

"Effective immediately, I have resigned from the Moran for Congress campaign," Patrick Moran said in a statement to TPM sent from his campaign email address.

Maybe Jim Moron should resign over this. (Not a misspelling)

The Democrats who were neatly gerrymandered into Moran's district (where they are an overwhelming majority) like thieves, liars, rapists, drunks, child molesters, dopers, traitors and the like.

Who imagines anyone but Jim can cover more of those categories?

The man is invaluable to the people in his district who can look up to him and say "wow, when I get out of stir I can be jus' like the man"

Why should old man Moron resign? He’ll win his seat comfortably again because...well, they know how to cheat.

I wonder how many citizens’ votes Jim Moron & family have managed to cancel out during his overly long, corrupt career?

If he had been working for a Republican office-seeker it certainly would be.

And Chris Matthews, Mika Brzezinski, Rachel Maddow, Bill Mahar, Ed Schultz, Whoopie Goldberg, Eliot Spitzer, James Carville, Lawrence O'Donnell, and a host of other brainiacs would be delighted to explain to you exactly why it was a felony.

“O’Keefe tweeted: In an extraordinary series of events, two people have been fired, an office has been shut down, Congressman’s son has resigned, no MSM.”

**********
This would be the same MSM that gave his old man a pass on at least three different occasions for verbal recklessness and spouting insensitivies.

Thanks for posting his tweet. Good to know that O’Keefe cited the corrupt MSM for what it is.

I’m sure it is a felony, but since he’s a Demonrat, he won’t pay $5 or spend 5 minutes in jail for it. If he were a Repub every network would be howling for blood.

The Dems engage in systematic voter fraud on a massive scale. That’s why the Republicans need a bigger margin in the opinion polls in order to put them over the top. Look what happened in Nevada in 2010. Polls were showing a dead heat and Reid ended up winning by a large margin, no doubt in part due to his magical voting machines.

Jim Moran doesn’t need to cheat in that district in order to win.

However, cheating needs to happen in Morans district for Obama to carry the state. This is national news, because cheating there could ONLY benefit Obama.

One of the comments on that article:

Because neither Project Veritas nor James O’Keefe are exempt from criminal prosecution for conspiracy to commit election fraud, and neither Project Veritas nor the "undercover operative" were authorized to conduct a sting operation like this, it looks like the video gives the DoJ an open and shut case against the conspirators.

These people live in some alternate reality.
