Rep. James Moran (D-VA) Welcomes the Gitmo Gang to Alexandria

James Moran, the Congressman who represents Alexandria, Virginia, has publicly volunteered his constituents as hosts for detainees relocated from Gitmo.

Rep. Moran has been a local politician since 1979, and he is - and here I wish there were a more delicate way to put it - flaky and corrupt, with an explosive temperament and an out-of-control personal life. But on the issue of Gitmo detainees he has the courage to accept the consequences of his political position, and I salute him for it. Alexandria's Mayor Euille, as well as seemingly all its other civic leaders, probably don't join me in that sentiment.
