Ocasio-Cortez: ‘I Haven’t Heard Anything’ About Fairfax Rape Allegations

Rank-and-file Democrats have largely ignored the allegations.

A New York Congresswoman claimed that she has not heard anything about the sexual assault allegations against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax.

“I look forward to looking into the scenario, but I haven’t heard anything about this,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when confronted by cameras in the halls of Congress.

Earlier in the video, she contradicted herself, saying that she had “not looked at all into the situation,” implying that she knew about the allegations.

That might make sense, given that she’s been busy trying to shove her “Green New Deal” down the throats of unwilling Americans, but the Fairfax story, along with that of blackface/Klan robe-wearing Gov. Ralph Northam has been the biggest story in America this week.

It’s difficult to conceive that Ocasio-Cortez is actually ignorant to the news, despite her general level of ignorance. Every Democrat dropped what he or she was doing in September to pile on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after allegations of sexual misconduct, despite few details from his accuser.

She can be seen hustling away from the cameras in the video of the incident.

At this hour, allegations of a second rape by Fairfax are breaking.

FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days

There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.

Published

on

There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.

John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.

In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.

McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
