Virginia’s Democrat Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is all-too-happy that allegations of rape levied against him by two women have made him more famous, and is now considering running for governor.
“Many people a year ago would not have recognized me, now they really do,” Fairfax reportedly said. “People come up to me at gas stations, they say, ‘Hey, we recognize you. We love you. We know what they are saying about you is false.'”
Big League Politics first reported that Scripps College professor Vanessa Tyson accused Fairfax of sexually assaulting her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Later, a second accuser named Meredith Watson said that Fairfax raped her when the pair were classmates at Duke University.
Fairfax, bucking the Democratic Party dogma of “believing all women,” has been defiant in the face of the allegations, maintaining his innocence. Now he might run for governor.
“Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax said Thursday that he is ‘very hopeful about the future’ and ‘thinking very seriously’ about a gubernatorial run in 2021,” according to The Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Meanwhile, Tyson’s legal team is on offense, attacking Fairfax over his cavalier attitude towards his accusers.
Big League Politics reported:
Debra Katz and Lisa Banks issued a statement Thursday blasting Fairfax for his “lack of respect for survivors of sexual violence.”
Here is Tyson’s team’s statement:
“Lieutenant Governor Fairfax’s letter to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office is another political stunt that shows his lack of respect for survivors of sexual violence. As a former prosecutor, the Lieutenant Governor certainly knows that potential targets of criminal investigations do not get to direct prosecutorial decisions. Like the bogus demand he made in February 2019 for the FBI to investigate Dr. Vanessa Tyson’s sexual assault allegations against him, Lieutenant Government Fairfax knows full well that his demands that the District Attorney take action will go unanswered. Despite his protestations about the unfairness of litigating such serious allegations in the press, his letter’s distorted presentation of facts is intended to do just that.”

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
