A former staffer of Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) trashed her old boss at a Take Back the Night event Thursday in Arlington, Virginia.
“I first began to have my doubts about the side I was standing on when I first heard from Dr. Vanessa Tyson,” said Adele McClure, Fairfax’s former policy director. “Her story began to sound too familiar to me and I became ill at the attempts to discredit her, to attack her, to threaten her with defamation suits and criminal prosecution.”
McClure added that Fairfax has “lost the moral legitimacy to hold public office.” She resigned in February after Big League Politics reported that Fairfax had been accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. He was later accused of rape by a second woman. He took to the Senate dais to proclaim his innocence, and compared himself to a lynching victim.
Take Back the Night is a nonprofit that raises awareness about sexual violence.
McClure also revealed that at one point, she had been sexually abused. She said:
“I wondered if my abuser were ever elected to public office … and I decided to speak out, how would I be treated? Would people attempt to label me as crazy, as a partisan pawn? Perhaps as an opportunist? Would I be threatened with lawsuits and legal action and would my abuser use the power of their office sitting on top of the dais to condemn me as a modern-day lynch mob that’s tantamount to those who murdered Emmett Till?”
She also questioned the “Believe All Woman” narrative, wondering if it only applied “when it’s politically inconvenient and not when it’s challenging power of someone we like.”
Fairfax has refused to resign, despite calls from local, state, and federally elected officials.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, remains in office despite the fact Big League Politics exposed his racism in February.

Department of Justice Investigating After FBI Finds Nine Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots Discarded in Ditch – All for Donald Trump
The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.
In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.
A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.
Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
