A member of the Virginia House of Delegates announced Friday evening that he will file articles of impeachment against Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax if Fairfax has not resigned by Monday.

“On Monday, I will be introducing articles of impeachment for Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax if he has not resigned before then,” said Patrick Hope on Twitter.

“Due to large media interest, I will issue a statement regarding articles of impeachment at 9 pm tonight at Arlington Central Library,” he said.

Fairfax has been engulfed in a sexual assault scandal since Big League Politics broke the news that he had been accused by Dr. Vanessa Tyson last Friday. Earlier today, a second allegation of rape was levied against him by a woman with whom he attended Duke University.

So far, Fairfax has refused to resign.

But after the second allegation surfaced this afternoon, former Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, also a Democrat, demanded Fairfax’s resignation.

Fairfax and the Virginia Democratic Party is in a tough spot, given that Gov. Ralph Northam was exposed by Big League Politics as a racist for wearing blackface or a KKK robe to a party during medical school. Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to once wearing blackface on Thursday, preempting any media attention on such behavior.

Bernie Sanders Projected as Winner of Nevada Democratic Caucus

Panic mode is on for the Democratic establishment.

Published

Bernie Sanders has been projected as the winner of Saturday’s Nevada Democratic Caucus.

Fox News was among the first media outlets to project Sanders, a Vermont U.S. Senator and Democratic Socialist, as the winner of the third-in-the-nation contest.

Initial ballot results seem to suggest that Sanders is set to coast to a dominant victory.

With six percent of delegates having been reported, Sanders has captured a resounding 54.7% of the vote.

Joe Biden is taking a distant second with 18%. It’s likely the results will lower Sanders’ final vote total, but such a strong initial showing could mean Sanders ultimately wins the caucus with close to 40% of the vote.

Sanders’ second primary victory- after having taken the popular vote in the Iowa caucuses as well- seems likely to trigger a full-blown panic among the establishment Democratic Party. Sanders has a clear path to coast to the party nomination at this point, and a victory in the upcoming South Carolina primary could all but seal the deal.

Nevada voters had the options to cast early ballots for the primary for the first time in the state’s history, with a window to vote opening last Saturday.

The Nevada caucuses were being closely monitored over concerns of election incompetence, after links between a company that developed a faulty app for the Iowa caucus were found to the Nevada Democratic Party. Sanders’ whopping initial margin of victory makes it unlikely reporting errors could prove significant enough to leave the results of the caucus in question.
