Moran's Son Resignation Came Day After Dad Sent AG Letter
Patrick Moran wrote in an email that he thought the person was "acting crazy and it struck me that he was joking, and for only that reason did I humor him," but also that he didn't want to be a distraction. The campaign accepted his resignation.
It's bad optics and timing for the congressman:
Moran, along with fellow Virginia Democratic Reps. Bobby Scott and Gerry Connolly, sent Attorney General Eric Holder a letter on Tuesday requesting a Department of Justice investigation into a possible case of voter registration fraud.
