Moran has to be physically restrained from Tea Party activists

Tea party activists nearly messed with the wrong congressman when they got into it with Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) in his Capitol office Sunday.

Moran, a thickly built Virginian with a  temper that runs hot on occasion, was summoned from his inner office by the noise of angry protesters interacting with his staff, according to the congressman’s account.

He confronted the protesters, prompting staff to step between them and the activists to ask whether Moran needed “bodyguards” to protect him.

“We’re not protecting him from you, we’re protecting you from him,” a staffer explained, according to Moran.

Moran once threatened to punch his predecessor, Stan Parris, and has been known to lose his temper at other times.

He said the activists were attempting to intimidate him and his aides.

  1. Moran is not really a Virginian. He is from Mass. and we original Virginians don’t like you smearing our reputation by saying Moron, oops I mean Moran is a Virginian. Somehow he keeps getting elected by all these federal workers who he keeps getting COLA for when we social security people don’t get an increase. He’s rude and a bully.
