In my post about Ralph Northam's possible resignation based on (proven) allegations of being a white male, I said
If he does resign from office, he'll be replaced by this guy, Lieutenant-Governor Justin Fairfax:
That's the point.
Lt. Governor Fairfax has just been hit with a #MeeToo style allegation. In 2004, Fairfax was a John Kerry staffer, and is alleged by a black female professor to have assaulted her at the DNC convention that year.
Big League Politics has the scoop:
UPDATE: Stanford Fellow Hints At Possible Justin Fairfax Sex Assault, by Patrick Howley, Big League Politics, February 5, 2019.
The "very big promotion" she's talking about is the possibility that white Governor Northam would have stepped down, as he was asked to do by the Great and Good in the Democratic Party and given Virginia a genuine black Governor, not just some guy who painted himself tan for a Michael Jackson contest.
If Northam was guilty because he was white, in the eyes of the Main Stream Media, Fairfax is not guilty because he's black.
The Washington Post knew about this accusation for months, in the heat of the #MeToo frenzy, spoke to Fairfax privately, accepted his denials, and didn't run the story:
With Kavanaugh, it was all “Believe Women.” With a Democrat, it’s “whoa whoa, facts are important”https://t.co/UOscVe0Kkh— Ashe Schow (@AsheSchow) February 4, 2019
The Post might have run #MeToo accusations against a white Democrat, or a black Republican, but a black Democrat? Never!
Update: It’s not entirely fair to say Northam is lying, below, but the Washington Post has confirmed that they don’t consider the uncorroborated word of a black woman who says she’s been attacked as evidence...when the accused is a black Democrat.
So according to the Washington Post, Fairfax lied about why the post chose not to report on his #MeToo allegation in his statement denying the allegation. https://t.co/N6Bj6JQPTh pic.twitter.com/zCePzg588T— Loren Crowe (@LorenCrowe) February 4, 2019
