According to a Monday morning report, Democratic Lt. Gov. of Virginia Justin Fairfax has been placed on leave by his law firm, Morrison Foerster, while the firm investigates the rape allegations against him.
The firm reportedly “has retained outside counsel to conduct an investigation. During the investigation, Justin Fairfax has taken a leave of absence from Morrison & Foerster.”
“Justin has agreed to cooperate with the firm’s investigation,” the firm’s chairman Larren M. Nashelsky said.
The private sector appears to be taking the allegations against Fairfax, first reported by Big League Politics, far more seriously than their counterparts in the public sector. Despite calls from Democrats across the country for Fairfax’s resignation, he has not stepped aside.
“We take the allegations against Justin very seriously,” Nashelsky reportedly said. “As a firm, we believe that it is important to seriously listen to any allegation of sexual assault or harassment, and to treat all persons making such allegations with respect and sensitivity.”
The role of Lt. Gov. is fairly small role in the governing process and earns only about $36,000 annually from the job. It is commonplace to hold another job while governing.
Still, the allegations are serious, and have dealt a huge blow to Fairfax, once considered a future leader of the Democratic Party.

President Trump Rallying in Valdosta, Georgia in Support of Perdue, Loeffler Saturday
MAGA is alive, not vanquished.
As President Trump litigates pending results of the 2020 election, citing pervasive evidence of voter fraud, he’s not forgetting about the Republican Party and the Senate election. The President is holding a Make America Great Again rally in Valdosta on Saturday night with Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
Will be going to Georgia for a big Trump Rally in support of our two great Republican Senators, David and Kelly. They are fantastic people who love their Country and love their State. We must work hard and be sure they win. #USA

The rally will be held at the Valdosta Regional Airport, with the outdoor venue serving to mitigate risks of COVID-19 transmission. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are running against radical Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock respectively, who have been funded to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars from out-of-state elite liberals from California and New York.
The President is still calling for stringent election verification measures in the traditionally conservative state, citing Georgia’s failure to conduct full signature verification measures of mail-in ballots cast in the 2020 election.
The best way to insure a @KLoeffler and @sendavidperdue VICTORY is to allow signature checks in the Presidential race, which will insure a Georgia Presidential win (very few votes are needed, many will be found). Spirits will soar and everyone will rush out and VOTE! @BrianKempGA

Video footage of ballot counting in Atlanta has revealed that some election processes were undertaken in near secrecy after the vast majority of poll workers left State Farm Arena. Four election workers were seen counting new boxes of unaccounted for ballots alone.

The 2020 election is over when President Trump says it is over. MAGA is alive, not vanquished, and in any event, the movement created by President Donald Trump will endure.
