Son Of ‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran Strangely Comfortable With Possible Voter Fraud, But Not Staying On Dad’s Campaign

The latest Project Veritas delivery isn’t a shining moment for Northern Virginia:
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are heros for calling attention to the serious problem of voter fraud. In defense of Pat Moran, though, it’s one thing to engage in hypothetical discussions about fraud, and quite another to commit it. I don’t want to sound like I’m letting Moran off the hook here; ‘Gentleman’ Jim is one of the larger pieces of work in our Congress. See the links below.

Still, while this isn’t a flattering introduction to Pat, would anyone at the field director level for any campaign do anything even slightly wonky with someone on their first meeting? Looking at Moran’s body language, I’m reading a lot of “Yeah, sure, whatever” here. A reasonable claim could be made that, to the extent Moran makes copacetic noises, Moran is setting about his own counter-sting. Except that Pat Moran has apparently resigned.

Pat Moran was connected to (what they hope) is a rock-solid campaign. As noted on Twitter of VA-8 voters:

Will Pat Moran’s sudden departure from daddy’s campaign be taken as an admission of guilt?

The seniority system ‘rewards’ districts that send the same tools back to the toolshed. This is doubly bad in the case of VA-8, where many of those involved in our federal wealth re-distribution system (government) reside. When sad cases like ‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran admonish voters not to “vote against their economic interests”, civil servant residents of VA-8 understand this is code for “keep the gravy train rolling”.

Nevertheless, as I was noting this very morning, before this news broke:

Just because Northern Virginia is infested with Commies does not make it acceptable to roll over

Hence my presence here, on Twitter, Facebook, and most nearby Tea Party events. These Commies won’t root themselves out. This is also why I am so deeply appreciative of

Patrick Murray for Congress

Retiring Jim Moran: an essential part of strengthening U.S. elections.

    Linked. I agree about Moran’s body language, but his spoken words belied that.

    Just saw on twitter that he has resigned from the campaign. Problem is there are hundreds of other corrupt Democrats out there doing the same thing.

    hard to find poll data on VA. I found this page that show’s Moran’s the projected winner, and that’s about it.

    So how close is/was that race before the O’Keefe clobberation was laid upon them?

    So much for the “there is no fraud” meme the left keeps belching forth.

    Is this showing up in the local news? If only we hear about it, it didn’t happen.

    No, the wife says it received coverage on NBC4, though I guess O’Keefe was named in the context of his ACORN work, with negative vibes.

    Sweet Pat’s high-speed departure from the campaign speaks volumes as to his possible guilty intentions. We must note that nowhere does he exclaim in horror,”Double-vote! You can’t DO that.”

    Hopefully it wasn’t just channel 4 they covered the Cherry Dale firehouse riot and nothing came of that either.

    Body language? What, are we going to call in the Body Language Experts to interpret it, too?

    Baloney, he suggests the fake utility bills. If O’Keefe was hiring a hit man, that’s the moment the cops come in and bust the guy.

    WTF? Body language?

    His reaction to a stranger proposing the commission of a crime wasn’t “get the #$%^ out of here, you [email protected]#[email protected]#”. After failing that test, he suggested ways to commit the crime. Then he offered assistance.

    And, boy, it sure sounded like he’d done it before.
