Democrat Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax apparently implied that his boss, Ralph Northam, was responsible for revived sexual assault allegations against him, in order to stop him from taking over as governor.
As crazy as it sounds, on Monday, Fairfax hinted that Northam is responsible for the resurfacing of sexual assault claim that occurred at the 2004 Democrat National Convention in Boston, Massachusetts.
“The Washington Post reported Monday that it was approached by a woman accusing Fairfax in 2017 and investigated the claim, yet never published a story for lack of any independent evidence.
“The Post said the woman had not told anyone about it, and the account could not be corroborated while Fairfax denied it. The paper was unable to find other similar allegations against him among people who knew him in college, law school or in politics.”
Yesterday, Fairfax finally admitted the encounter, but claimed it was consensual and that his accuser was as spurred lover, not a rape victim.
When asked by a reporter if he suspects Northam is responsible for the allegation being re-examined, Fairfax responded, “Does anybody think it’s any coincidence that on the eve of potentially my being elevated that that’s when this uncorroborated smear comes out?”
However, he added, “I have no indication of that,” concerning Northam.
“A reporter then elicited a comment on the question of whether he thought Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney could have played a role.”
“You’re a great reporter,” Fairfax said. He didn’t comment further, but added, “You’re great reporters, and you’ll get to digging, and you’ll get to make some connections,” he said.

“Like Fairfax, Stoney is reportedly mulling a run for governor one day. The website that first reported the allegation against Fairfax, Big League Politics, said it came from Adria Scharf, who is married to Stoney adviser Thad Williamson.”
A spokesman for Stoney denied it saying, “This insinuation is 100 percent not true. Period,” spokesman Jim Nolan told the Washington Post.
Fairfax’s admission of a consensual act has caused more problems for democrats. The mantra of the left has been ‘believe all women,’ but that is obviously not the case when it concerns one of their own.
The fact that liberals are turning on one another in Virginia doesn’t bode well for the state. Northam was somewhat ostracized by the party after admitted days before the blackface picture scandal that he was in favor of what amounted to infanticide, allowing a mother to have her child aborted after it had been delivered.
