ARLINGTON, VA, October 24th, 2012 – Independent Congressional Candidate Jason Howell responds to the sting video and subsequent resignation of Patrick Moran; the son of his opponent, incumbent Congressman Jim Moran.

“From the very beginning, our campaign has been about giving my neighbors the opportunity to vote for someone rather than merely against Jim Moran.  I was saddened watching video of the apparent sting operation on Patrick. The Moran campaign may now have many distracting, legal and ethical questions to answer. 

Our campaign is about my generation taking responsibility for the systemic political and economic challenges we face as a country. We must do better.  If you elect me on November 6th, a business owner, community volunteer, former accountant and jobs recruiter, we will do better,” said Howell.
