ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - The son of Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., has resigned from his father's campaign after a conservative group released an undercover video in which he discussed a plan to cast fraudulent ballots.
Patrick Moran, who had been a field director for the campaign, released a brief resignation statement Wednesday.
The resignation came hours after Project Veritas, an organization led by activist James O'Keefe, released a video showing an undercover operative pitching a voter-fraud plan to Patrick Moran. The plan called for casting ballots in the name of 100 voters who were registered but rarely voted.
In the video, Patrick Moran expresses doubts about the plan but eventually tells the undercover volunteer to "look into it."
Jim Moran's campaign office sent a statement saying the incident was an error in judgment.
