Democrat Virginia lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax reportedly expressed disdain for Vanessa Tyson, the Stanford fellow accusing Fairfax of sexually assaulting her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.
Fairfax, who then worked as John Edwards’ “body man” on the John Kerry campaign, is slated to become governor if Ralph Northam resigns from office for his racist yearbook photo. But Northam’s resignation is now complicated by Fairfax’s scandal, and by third-in-line attorney general Mark Herring’s admission that Herring also wore blackface in college.
Fairfax is not happy, according to NBC News.
NBC News has learned that Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax used profane language in a private meeting Monday night, while referring to his accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson.

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.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
