NBC: Virginia Democrat Lt Gov Fairfax Calls Sexual Assault Victim VULGAR Names
It is beginning to look like Virginia Lt Governor Jason Fairfax will not make it through the trifecta scandal going on at the top of the state’s executive government.
After acknowledging that a sexual encounter actually did take place, he went on a reported tirade in private meeting Monday night stating Fairfax said of the alleged victim: “Fuck that bitch.”
The vulgarity was first reported by NBC News Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt:
“NBC News has learned that Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax used profane language in a private meeting Monday night, while referring to his accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson.
Two sources tells us Fairfax said of Tyson: “Fuck that bitch.””

(Ironically, the victim is being represented by the law firm that backed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford when she accused then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in high school.
Fairfax, in turn, has retained the law firm that represented Kavanaugh during those contentious hearings.)
Big League Politics reported:
According to an early Tuesday morning NPR report, the woman who accused Virginia’s Democratic Lieutenant Governor of sexual assault has retained legal counsel, and is considering “next steps.”
“NEWS: A California woman accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault has hired Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team – Katz, Marshall and Banks – and is consulting with them about next steps, according to a source close to the legal team,” said NPR correspondent Sarah McCammon.

Big League Politics first reported that Vanessa Tyson had accused Fairfax of sexual assault Sunday evening.
Fairfax has refused to apply the standard to which Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was held during the Blasey Ford allegations- believing all women without due process – and vehemently denied the allegations, threatening to sue BLP in a desperate denial released at 3 a.m. Monday. He later did the same to The Washington Post, who disputed his account as to why they spiked the story after they learned of the allegations years ago.
Virginia has been mired in a mega scandal now for over a week, with it’s top three leaders, Governor Northam, Fairfax, and Atorney General Mark Herring, all being pressured to resign.
Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, of California, said Thursday she finds Tyson’s charges “credible” and called for a thorough investigation of the allegations.
“I think the letter written by the woman reads as a credible account and I think there should be an investigation to get to the bottom of it and determine the facts,” Harris, a top 2020 presidential hopeful, said.
Toni Van Pelt, president of the National Organization of Women, has also called for him to step down, as has Rep. Jennifer Wexton, a freshman Virginia Democrat who previously served in the state senate.
I believe Dr. Vanessa Tyson.

If Northam, Fairfax and Herring all resign, the state’s Speaker of the House of Delegates, Kirk Cox, would become governor. Cox is a Republican.
Virginia’s Democratic Party declined to comment on the latest developments. When asked for comment, a spokesman told Fox News: “We’re not taking any calls right now.
