Roll Call: Latest News on Capitol Hill, Congress, Politics and Elections
November 27, 2014

A Busy Police Beat

Violence. Sex. Immigration violations. The HOH crime blotter was chock full on Wednesday, with news affecting members from both sides of the Capitol Dome.

Patrick Moran, the son of Virginia Democratic Rep. James P. Moran, pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend, the Washington City Paper reported. The younger Moran and his girlfriend, Kelly Hoffman, started arguing in Columbia Heights bar The Getaway. The police report says Moran was observed grabbing his girlfriend by the back of the head and shoving her face against a metal trash can cage.

The congressman’s office said the situation was embarrassing but was an accident. Hoffman said it was an accident, and that she fell when her heel broke.

We hardly had time to catch our breath before The Associated Press reported that there was a problem with an unpaid intern for Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J.

Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, a registered sex offender, landed on Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s radar over an expired visa.

This comes on the heels of recent reports of fellow former Menendez aides David M. Gins and Yasmin Malhotra being accused of snatching GOP campaign signs and dealing prescription drugs, respectively.
