Democratic politicians in Virginia are having perhaps one of their worst months ever. Governor Northam as well as AG Herring’s blackface scandals, Lt. Governor Fairfax’s is also facing a serious sexual assault allegation. It now appears a democratic representative was made aware of the allegation and did not push for an investigation. As you can see, President Trump has stood up to two years of bogus investigations and come out in the clear where as the democrats are dismantled in a matter of days.
The Daily Wire reported that the series of scandals that have brought Virginia Democrats to their knees over the last week worsened after a new bombshell report was released on Wednesday night that alleges a Democratic lawmaker knew about the sexual assault allegations against Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax for over a year.
ABC News reports that Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) was made aware of the allegations directly from Fairfax’s accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson, “who on Wednesday released a statement detailing the alleged 2004 assault, which took place at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.”
“Allegations of sexual assault need to be taken seriously,” Scott said in a statement to ABC News. “I have known Professor Tyson for approximately a decade and she is a friend. She deserves the opportunity to have her story heard.”
Aides to Scott told ABC News that Tyson told Scott on October 20, 2017 that she was “not a fan” of Fairfax, who at the time was a candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor.
The following month, Tyson continued to disclose her dislike for Fairfax to Scott and told Scott that she wanted to “talk about it” with him.
In December 2017, Tyson allegedly told Scott that Fairfax had a “MeToo allegation,” and over the next month, Scott’s aides learned that Tyson was the alleged victim.
ABC News also noted that Tyson “hired the legal services of Katz, Marshall and Banks. That was the very same law firm that was retained by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor who accused Brett Kavanaugh, then-President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, of sexual misconduct.” Seems like a scam to me. We can expect more democrats to fall the closer we get to the 2020 presidential election.
