“House speaker Kirk Cox told the Washington Post on Thursday that he has asked his Democratic colleagues to join him on a 10-person investigative committee, with five members from each party, arguing that accusers Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson ‘deserve a voice.’”
“We need to work on a process to do that,” Cox says he told the Democrats. “And I would like for you to come alongside us.”
But of course, democrats never want ‘voices’ raised against one of their own and have shown, in the past, that they will protect lawbreakers in their party.
“Fairfax was first accused of rape by Tyson, who said he forced her to perform oral sex on him while they were both staff members at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Fairfax was then accused of rape by Watson, who recounted a similar experience when they were both students at Duke University.”
Others have pointed out that this is not the only scandal still going on in Virginia. The Governor’s old yearbook page shows an image of a Klansman along with a person in blackface, and many argue that if he were a conservative, he would have already been removed from office.
However, it’s like democrats hope that these scandals will just be forgotten, and if they can avoid them long enough, they can dupe voters who they think are too ignorant to remember such offenses.
The post reported:
House Minority Leader Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Fairfax) confirmed that she and other Democratic leaders have met with Cox but said that they were concerned that an investigative panel could impede possible criminal investigations.
“Nobody wants this to turn into a political, partisan show,” Filler-Corn said.
She also said she was wary of agreeing to the formation of the committee without more details. “We asked for the specifics: ‘What are you talking about? What would this look like? How would this be done?'” […]
“They [Republicans] seem to think that they have ideas as to how this could transpire,” Filler-Corn said. “We have yet to see the details. So until we know, we cannot make a decision ourselves.”
A spokesman for Fairfax said, “it would be extraordinary and unprecedented to initiate a General Assembly inquiry about matters that are better left to law enforcement.”
That’s outrageous. Such considerations have not stopped liberals in congress from pushing a false narrative against Donald Trump.
