Virginia’s Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax has been accused of sexual assault. The accuser alleges the attack occurred during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. There is zero evidence to corroborate this story, which is why The Washington Post and other refused to run it. Different ethical standards were applied for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, however. The Daily Caller’s Henry Rodgers tweeted that he asked 10 Democratic senators about the Fairfax allegation. They either offered no comment or said they haven’t heard the news, which is just another way of saying the former. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who caucuses with Senate Democrats, just ran away. As reported by CBS NEs’ Alan He, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said he’s more concerned with Northam’s blackface fiasco. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) refused to comment when asked about Fairfax by The Huffington Post’s Igor Bobic.
Given how this party handled the Kavanaugh nomination and weaponized sexual assault allegations, they will continue to refuse comment or run away. Their party is now at the end of the barrel of the Me Too gun, and as we all expected, many don’t really seem to care about this sexual assault allegation. Going by their rules, they automatically have to believe Fairfax’s accuser. Why are they stalling? Is it Believe All Women, or is it only the case when a Republican is accused? I know you all know the answer to that, but it’s very satisfying to see this ensnare Democrats.
NOW: I have asked around 10 Democratic Senators if they believe Virginia Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax’s accuser. None of them will comment, some say they have not heard the news...— Henry Rodgers (@henryrodgersdc) February 5, 2019
The news is going to be very, very slow to reach them https://t.co/Pi91vveVC7— Rich Lowry (@RichLowry) February 5, 2019
Are there any other reporters on Capitol Hill today, or is Henry the only one out doing his job? https://t.co/mU7Ic9y1ZX— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) February 5, 2019

Senator Booker on the allegation against Lt. Gov Fairfax:— Alan He (@alanhe) February 5, 2019
“I think we should be focusing on what’s right now happening with the Governor. I know you guys are going to try to focus on a lot of things right now, but right now my focus is on again calling for the Gov. to step down.

"I’m not going to make a comment....I have no further comment than referring you back to the Lt Gov’s statement.”

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said it’s too early for him to comment on Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s future because he doesn’t know all the facts surrounding the sexual allegation claim. But he said “Every person,” including Fairfax’s accuser, “has the right to tell their story.”— Marianna Sotomayor (@MariannaNBCNews) February 5, 2019
Maybe this will get them talking:
