The Governor of Virginia reportedly said that he will “definitely” not resign after a second woman has accused Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault.

“Embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) told staff on Friday that he definitely won’t resign after previously leaving the door open to stepping aside, a source familiar with the meeting tells TPM,” according to Talking Points Memo.

Both men are clinging to office through their respective scandals.

“Northam told staff at a meeting that he won’t leave the governor’s office and plans to serve out the next three years of his term in spite of an ongoing scandal over his use of blackface in the 1980s,” the report continued.

Last Friday, Big League Politics published photos showing Northam in blackface or a KKK outfit from his yearbook at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Sunday, Big League Politics published the first claim of sexual assault made against Fairfax.

This afternoon, a second woman came forward to accuse Fairfax of rape. Big League Politics reported:

Justin Fairfax is now accused of rape by a classmate during his time at Duke University, according to her lawyers. This is the second allegation of sexual assault levied against the Virginia Democrat lieutenant governor, following Dr. Vanessa Tyson’s claim that Fairfax sexually assaulted her by forcing her to perform fellatio in a hotel room at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004. Tyson has made it clear that she is willing to cooperate in an investigation of Fairfax, according to a source cited by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Evergreen Partners confirmed to Big League Politics that the firm is representing Meredith Watson.

Former Democratic Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe has called for the immediate resignation of Fairfax in the aftermath of the second accusation.

“The allegations against Justin Fairfax are serious and credible. It is clear to me that he can no longer effectively serve the people of Virginia as Lieutenant Governor. I call for his immediate resignation,” he said on Twitter.

The seriousness of the allegations against Fairfax have taken some of the heat off of Northam for the moment.

One Democratic state lawmaker has even broken with the rest of the caucus, claiming that Northam should stay despite his obvious racism.

“Sen. Chap Petersen, D-Fairfax City, said in a news release he won’t call for Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, Attorney General Mark Herring or anyone else to resign ‘until it is obvious that they have committed a crime in office or their ability to serve is irredeemably compromised,'” according to The Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Petersen, a white man, apparently does not take racism very seriously. His comments make sense, though, given that Democrats tend to care more about power than decency.

Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring, third in line to become governor if both Northam and Fairfax resign, has admitted to wearing blackface in 1980.

Prominent Trump Backers Join Progressive Leftists to Sign Letter Urging the President to Pardon Julian Assange

Trump must act while there is still time.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is being urged by a bipartisan coalition to pardon whistleblowers’ advocate Julian Assange, who is facing charges under the Espionage Act for reporting accurately on war crimes and other heinous government and corporate abuses.

The WikiLeaks founder has been brutalized in a hellish super-max prison in Britain awaiting possible extradition to the U.S. for nearly two years now. Trump has a chance to foil the deep state’s plans to make an example of Assange and set the precedent for other journalists to be attacked in a similar manner.

An eclectic mix of individuals, including hardcore Trump backers, far-left civil liberties activists, former Nobel Prize winners, and current and former heads of state, have signed onto a letter imploring the president to pardon Assange.

The letter, which was delivered in December, urges President Trump to put a “defining stamp on your presidential legacy by pardoning Julian Assange or stopping his extradition.” It was signed by veteran right-wing operatives Roger Stone and Dinesh D’Souza, both of whom received pardons from the president.

The former presidents of the Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Switzerland, Columbia and Brazil also signed the letter. Other signatories include former Nobel Laureates Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi and Rigoberta Menchú.

“The US prosecution of Assange is unprecedented: he faces 175 years in prison for the same publications for which he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This prosecution threatens the constitutional protections that Americans hold dear. By offering a pardon, to put a stop to the prosecution of Assange, your presidency will be remembered for having saved First Amendment protections for all Americans,” the letter stated.

Other notable signatories on the letter include Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), actress Pamela Anderson, film director Oliver Stone, Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft, best-selling libertarian author Tom Woods, and many others.

Big League Politics has reported on Assange’s detention after the informational titan had been arguably the most influential media personality responsible for Crooked Hillary’s stunning defeat in 2016:

Former Texas Republican and ‘god father’ of the tea party movement Ron Paul thinks the deep state may be out to shut WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange up permanently.

The 83-year-old liberty icon spoke out about the ongoing abuse of Assange by U.K. authorities on an edition of his “Ron Paul Liberty Report” broadcast earlier today. Paul believes the mistreatment of Assange is undergoing is a ‘tragic story’ emblematic of how the deep state treats whistle-blowers.

Paul compares the treatment of Assange by U.K. authorities to how the North Koreans treated U.S. student Otto Warmbier before he died.

“If he had a terminal disease or something happens to him, good, bad, or whatever and he dies in the prison, how would we look a lot different to the North Koreans on the surface?” Paul asked.

Paul noted reports of Assange’s “very very bad” health and feels that U.K. and U.S. authorities want to make an example of the man “for being a journalist” by either killing him or putting him in prison for life…

Nils Melzer, the United Nations’ special rapporteur on torture, visited Assange with two medical professionals who have a background in examining torture victims on May 9. He issued a report on the “the extremely hostile and arbitrary environment” created for Assange.

Melzer claims the U.K, along with the U.S. and Ecuador, are engaging in “relentless and unrestrained campaign of public mobbing, intimidation and defamation against Mr. Assange.”

Assange was ejected from the Ecuadorean embassy in the UK after his asylum status was revoked in April. He was previously isolated from society under house arrest there for seven years.

The detention of Assange shows that no good deed goes unpunished in this cruel, backward world. President Trump has a chance to salvage his legacy if he pardons Assange. If Trump fails in this regard, the deep state will have escaped his four-year term without any major push back against their unconstitutional overreach.
