VA Lt. Governor Confirms Sexual Assault Allegation Against Him Exists, Says WaPo Spiked It

Fairfax denies it and says The Washington Post let the allegation die in the darkness.

Late Sunday evening, Big League Politics broke a story detailing an apparent sexual assault allegation against Democrat Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax occurring during the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

Now, that reporting has been confirmed according to a statement coming directly from Lt. Governor Fairfax’s office.

The statement, which calls the allegation “false,” reveals that the woman making the allegation had reached out to the Washington Post “more than a year ago.”  But, according to the statement, the Post let the story die in darkness, choosing not to publish the story after a “months” long investigation.

This is the same Washington Post which spoke to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, publicly for the first time, and later followed up by publishing a column supporting the idea of “believing survivors,” saying that, “We believe women’s stories should be heard.”

The allegation that BLP first reported on, comes from a woman named Vanessa Tyson.

Tyson is a Stanford University Fellow, currently studying “the politics and policies surrounding sexual violence against women and children in the United States.” She also serves as a Professor at Scripps College, which she is currently on leave from, as well as being an accomplished author.

Her allegation was first made known to Big League Politics through a tipster sharing a private post from Tyson.

She claims that she was sexually assaulted at the 2004 Democratic National Convention by a staffer for former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry. Fairfax was indeed a staffer for Kerry’s campaign.

The post goes on to explain that the man she alleges assaulted her went on to win statewide office in November of 2017 as a Democrat, just as Fairfax did. And finally, she explains that due to “strange, horrible luck,” the alleged abuser is likely to get a “VERY BIG promotion.”

That “strange, horrible luck” seems to be the scandal, first broke by BLP, likely to destroy the career of Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northram, showing a picture of him in either a Ku Klux Klan costume, or black face in his Medical School yearbook.

If Northam resigns, Fairfax will take his position as Governor, a VERY BIG promotion.

Everything in Tyson’s post points toward Fairfax, and now in a statement, that is being publicly admitted.
