    So was Brett Kavanaugh, but he had more standing for it, if readers will pardon the pun. In a phone interview with the Washington Post last night, Justin Fairfax insisted that he will not resign despite the emergence of multiple accusers and allegations of sexual assault. Virginia’s lieutenant governor plans to show up in the state senate as usual, and claims that he’s “standing up for due process”: Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) said he will not step down and will preside over the Senate Monday regardless of any attempts to remove him from office amid allegations that he...

    We have still more news to bring you from that chaotic developing nation formerly known as the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of Wednesday night, Virginia's three highest ranking public officials, all of them Democrats, are embroiled in potentially career-ending scandals, and it seemed to come out of nowhere just last week. First, you'll remember, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam casually endorsed infanticide while defending a Democratic bill to legalize abortion right up to the minute of birth. Then just hours after he said that, a little over a day, I think, Northam was found to have a picture of man wearing...

    Vanessa Tyson, a professor who has accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) of sexual assault, issued her first statement Wednesday detailing her allegation against him. “What began as consensual kissing quickly turned into a sexual assault," Tyson, a college professor from California, said in the statement. "Mr. Fairfax forced me to perform oral sex on him." Tyson has accused Fairfax of sexually assaulting her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Fairfax has denied the accusation. The lieutenant governor issued a statement earlier Wednesday maintaining that his interaction with Tyson was consensual. “At no time did she express...

    The party that loves the blacks is all wearing blackface, and the party that loves the women is forcing them to perform oral sex and then saying "F*** THAT BITCH" when they squeal. First, Fairfax claimed that Vanessa Tyson's account of being an incest survivor (her father was convicted of incest) doesn't also mention John Fairfax forcing her to perform oral sex. Um, if you watch the video, she only mentions this because her interviewer says "We have something in common," the interviewer referring to herself being an incest survivor. So why would Tyson bring up "Oh I also was...

    The woman at the center of a sexual assault scandal involving Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is a Stanford University fellow scheduled to appear at a symposium next week on sexual violence and the #MeToo movement. Professor Vanessa Tyson’s allegations, stemming from an interaction at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, and the explosive political fallout echo those of Christine Blasey Ford, another university professor living in Palo Alto, who last year accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers. Tyson’s Stanford colleague Jennifer Freyd told the Bay Area News Group on Tuesday that sometime...

    Washington (CNN)Virginia GOP Speaker Kirk Cox expressed skepticism on Monday that the legislature should try to force Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam out of office, highlighting a potential constitutional impasse the commonwealth could face should Northam decline to step down. "I think there's a rightful hesitation about removal from office, because obviously you have to consider that to some degree you're overturning an election," Cox said. "I think the constitutional provisions are very specific on the succession of office. It really does call for mental or physical incapacitation. That's what it was meant to do." Pressure has grown on Northam to...

    Late Sunday evening, Big League Politics broke a story detailing an apparent sexual assault allegation against Democrat Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax occurring during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Now, that reporting has been confirmed according to a statement coming directly from Lt. Governor Fairfax’s office. The statement, which calls the allegation “false,” reveals that the woman making the allegation had reached out to the Washington Post “more than a year ago.” But, according to the statement, the Post let the story die in darkness, choosing not to publish the story after a “months” long investigation.

    Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax praised a reporter who asked Monday if he thought the mayor of Richmond, a potential 2021 rival for governor, might be tied to the sexual assault allegation he faces. Talking to reporters on the steps of the rotunda of the Virginia state Capitol, Fairfax walked back his earlier suggestion that he believed Gov. Ralph Northam, who is facing his own scandal involving a racist photo in his medical school yearbook, might be behind the emergence of a woman who claims Fairfax sexually assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. "I have no...

    In its Monday story, the Washington Post acknowledged investigating the claims and deciding not to publish. But it said the Fairfax statement “incorrectly” claimed the paper found “significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations.” “Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present,” the paper said. “The Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version.” The Washington Post didn’t name the accuser. But the paper said Fairfax and the woman met first met in Boston at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Growing calls for Virginia Gov....

    RICHMOND The speaker of Virginia’s House of Delegates renewed his call for Gov. Ralph Northam’s resignation Monday, but stopped short of saying the House would start any efforts to force the governor out. “I think there’s a rightful hesitation about a removal from office,” Speaker Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights, said. “Impeachment — that’s a very high standard.” He said he hasn’t spoken to Northam since the Democratic governor admitted he posed in either blackface or in Ku Klux Klan robes when he was a student at Eastern Virginia Medical School in 1984 — an admission Northam recanted less than 24...

Justin Fairfax issued a forceful pre-dawn denial on Monday to an allegation of sexual assault that surfaced after 15 years, in the latest political bombshell to rock Richmond where Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam is battling resignation calls over a racist photo from his medical school yearbook.

Governor Fairfax has an outstanding and well-earned reputation for treating people with dignity and respect,” the statement from his office read. “He has never assaulted anyone—ever—in any way,...
