According to an early Tuesday morning NPR report, the woman who accused Virginia’s Democratic Lieutenant Governor of sexual assault has retained legal counsel, and is considering “next steps.”

“NEWS: A California woman accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault has hired Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team – Katz, Marshall and Banks – and is consulting with them about next steps, according to a source close to the legal team,” said NPR correspondent Sarah McCammon.

Big League Politics first reported that Vanessa Tyson had accused Fairfax of sexual assault Sunday evening.

Fairfax has refused to apply the standard to which Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was held during the Blasey Ford allegations- believing all women without due process – and vehemently denied the allegations, threatening to sue BLP in a desperate denial released at 3 a.m. Monday. He later did the same to The Washington Post, who disputed his account as to why they spiked the story after they learned of the allegations years ago.

Monday, Fairfax speculated wildly as to who might have been behind the leak of the sexual assault allegations. He appeared to suggest that embattled Governor Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, might have been the source of the leak. BLP exposed Northam’s racist past on Friday, igniting a national furor has lead to calls for Northam’s resignation from powerful Democrats nationwide.

So far, both men have refused to resign.

The law firm did not immediately respond to a comment request.

Elizabeth Warren SLAMS Bernie’s Bros: “A Foundation of Hate”

Warren’s alliance with the democratic socialist is shattered.

Elizabeth Warren Baits and Switches College Students

Elizabeth Warren spoke in condemning terms about some of Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ supporters when speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, calling out some Sanders supporters for operating with a “foundation of hate.”

Sanders’ competitors and liberal mainstream media outlets have increasingly tried to tar his supporters in an effort to blunt the candidacy of the democratic socialist, as he appears well-positioned to take the nomination.

Warren’s previously warm relationship with the Vermont democratic socialist turned sour last month, when the Massachusetts Senator claimed Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be President. Sanders denied the accusation, and Warren went on to accuse him of calling her a liar on a live debate stage.

Warren accused Sanders supporters of organizing a harassment campaign against members of a Nevada culinary union that declined to support him.

I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. … We do not build on a foundation of hate.

Warren’s line of attack is quite similar to neoliberal Democrats running implicit ‘Never Bernie’ campaigns. Authoritarian oligarch Michael Bloomberg has released ads claiming that Sanders’ movement represents a toxic mob.

Warren claims Sanders supporters are “publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families.

Joe Biden also condemned what he interprets as online hate from Sanders supporters, telling mainstream media flack Chuck Todd that the Vermont Senator bears “accountability.” Sanders himself seems skeptical of the narrative, asking who his supposedly malicious supporters are when pressed on the issue.

Heated rhetoric from online leftists now seems to be a front and center issue within the Democratic primary. It’s a bit less clear if the supposed online mobs are really harassing people, or if Sanders’ critics want a free pass from criticism.
