The Democrat who was going to introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax has now backed off. He received feedback that more conversations were needed. I bet a horse head in his bed had real impact.
It appears to me that the Fairfax incident was simply a ploy by the Obama people to ensure that he stays on the reservation. Until now, they might have seen him as a loose end, someone who could shift with the political wind. Any doubts that they may have had have been removed. He is totally owned by them now.
