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.

Published

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.

Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected

Just weeks ago, Romney was voting to impeach Trump.

Published

on

Mitt Romney admitted during a Munich Security Conference panel in Germany that President Donald Trump is “likely” to be re-elected on Friday.

Romney’s admission could be interpreted as a tacit admission that the Utah Republican was seeking to overturn the likely will of the American voter in the 2020 election. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump on Democratic impeachment charges, claiming he warranted removal from office for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.

I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected, not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.

Romney’s answer when asked about Trump’s re-election chances seems to suggest he believes Democrats are going to nominate Bernie Sanders. Establishment conservatives such as Romney often tend to underestimate populist political figures such as Sanders in a similar manner that they did Trump in the 2016 election. (Romney did admit that he “did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump.”)

Romney was lauded for his impeachment vote by the crowd at the annual event, a mainstay institution for the western political elite. A moderator for the panel claimed he “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”

The failed 2012 presidential candidate may have alienated himself even further from the Republican party with remarks that seemed dismissive of his Senate colleagues, describing them as beholden to the President.

In what may have been his most self-reflective remarks of the night, Romney admitted there was little to no desire among the American public for the outdated liberal conservative principles he’s known for.

Right now, the nature of American politics is highly populist… I’m perhaps a throwback. I jokingly say I have about 2% of the population that’s with me.”

I think that might be a bit on the high side, Mitt.
