The heat is being turned up on Virginia’s Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, who, in the political left’s terms, stands “credibly accused” of sexually assaulting a Stanford professor at 2004 Democratic National Convention.
“I support Dr. Tyson. She showed enormous courage in coming forward, and her very credible claims require investigation. In this country, institutional bias stacks against survivors, for the powerful. We have to support survivors first so their claims can be fully investigated,” said 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).

Gillibrand fell short of calling for Fairfax’s resignation, but has been more vocal than most of her leftist lawmaking colleagues in supporting Dr. Vanessa Tyson.
Tyson said that she was sexually assaulted by Fairfax in a hotel room at the 2004 DNC, which he denies, claiming the pair’s sexual encounter was consensual. He reportedly responded privately to the allegations by saying “f*** that b****” in a meeting with allies Wednesday.
Big League Politics first broke the story of Fairfax’s alleged sexual misconduct Sunday, just days after breaking photos of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, wearing blackface. Virginia’s Attorney General Mark Herring, also a Democrat, admitted to wearing blackface to a fraternity party in 1980, apparently afraid that photos of the event would surface.
None have resigned, though Herring did give up his position as co-chair of the Democratic Attorney Generals Association.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
