In another strange Virginia press conference, Democrat Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax seemed to make the uncorroborated and untrue claim that Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam worked with Big League Politics to break the news of his sexual assault accusation to distract from the news Big League Politics also broke about Northam’s racist yearbook photo.
After Northam’s bizarre press conference, in which he rambled about Black Hawk Down and admitted to wearing shoe polish on his face, Virginians may have thought they had seen it all. Eager to prove them wrong, Fairfax today seemed to suggest that Big League Politics broke the story about his sexual assault accusation to distract from Big League Politics’ coverage of Northam’s racist yearbook photos.
The governor first alluded to this conspiracy in his public statement, telling Virginians that “Only now, at a time of intense media attention surrounding Virginia politics, has this false claim been raised again,” then added more details in his press conference.
“It’s such a shame that this has been weaponized and used as a smear,” Fairfax said of the allegation, “Does anybody think it’s any coincidence that on the eve of my being elevated, that’s when this uncorroborated smear comes out? Does anybody think that’s a coincidence?”
“I don’t think anybody thinks that’s a coincidence.”
Fairfax’s statement refers to the uncorroborated accusation made by Collective PAC, which suggested Northam’s “team and advisors have now decided to start attacking Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax by spreading lies to reporters and state leaders in an attempt to quell support for the Lt. Governor as Governor Northam’s impending successor should he resign.”
Big League Politics broke the story last night, and did not do so at the instruction of Northam, who we spent the last week exposing as a pro-infanticide and pro-blackface racist. This claim by Collective PAC is neither substantiated nor corroborated.
In fact, earlier today Big League Politics reported on how accuser Vanessa Tyson, a Fellow and Professor at Stanford University, detailed the process of how she spread her recollection of events after she explained her actions in a now-deleted Facebook post.
It is also worth noting that Fairfax does not deny having an encounter with Tyson, but maintains the relationship was “100 percent” consensual.
Perhaps realizing how preposterous the claim that Big League Politics takes instructions from Northam must sound, Fairfax walked back his comments this evening, and instead blamed another Democrat, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney.
EVENING NEWS: Fairfax softens on claiming Northam is behind the sexual assault claims, but hints in second gaggle that Richmond mayor @LevarStoney – his would-be rival for governor in '21 – had a role.
Stoney:: "100 pct not true" and "it's offensive" >https://t.co/X9qPp1fmbV

Mom Drowns Her Five Kids in India’s Ganga River After Altercation with Husband
A mother of five reportedly threw her children into the Ganga river in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh’s Bhadohi district early Sunday morning after an alleged altercation with her husband. The youngest child was a three-year-old boy.
The Ganga river is deep. The woman has been identified as Manju. Her children are aged 12, 10, 8, 6 and 3.
The media initially speculated that food scarcity in the subcontinent due to the coronavirus lockdown had been the driving force behind her extreme behavior. However, in a video interview with police, it was later clarified that the COVID-19 lockdown was not the cause of the drownings.
India’s NDTV reported that a police officer said: “a search for the children is on.” The officer added, “Our priority is to rescue the children as soon as possible, We will carry out other investigations later.” However, according to a local publication, the Hindustan Times, the children are believed to be dead.
According to Asian News International (ANI), the woman confessed to committing the crime and told police, “I pushed my 5 children into the Ganga river after a fight with my husband. He always beats me.”
Here is a transcript from a video posted to Twitter by the Bhadohi Police in which an officer is questioning Manju, who appears to be startled (video has been translated from Hindi to English):
Officer: Speak loudly.
Manju: I put them in the water.
Officer: Why did you do this?
Manju: Tension in my mind.
Officer: What kind of stress? Family, food, etc.?
Manju: I had some arguments and fights that caused stress.
Officer: With whom did you fight?
Manju: With my husband.
Officer: What was the issue?
Manju: He used to fight with and beat me.
Officer: How many kids do you have?
Manju: Two boys and three girls.
Officer: What time did you bring the kids to the River Ganga?
Manju: I did not see the time.
According to the Superintendent of Bhadohi Police Ram Badan Singh, reports that Manju had jumped into the water after her she threw her kids in were false. Locals who were working in fields nearby who saw the incident and heard the children’s cries reportedly rushed to try and rescue the youth, but did not succeed.
Manju is reportedly a daily wage earner and while she cited a domestic incident as triggering her behavior, countless other daily wage and migrant workers in India have been placed under tremendous financial and emotional strain over the global COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.
On April 15, India’s government imposed a mandatory 21-day national lockdown. Based on the World Bank’s poverty line of $3.2 per day income for a country like India, it is likely that the bottom 50 percentile of the subcontinent’s population will run out of cash.
According to a survey by a Jan Sahas, a civil society-focused nonprofit in India, at least 93% of day laborers have so far lost their one to three weeks of livelihood amid the lockdown, with over 80% of the country’s migrant and daily-wage population facing the prospect of starvation before the lockdown comes to an end.
