A Democrat that was in line for a big promotion just got the worst news of his life
Republicans and even Democrats are all calling on Virginia’s Democrat Governor Ralph Northam to resign after a weeks worth of scandal.
But things just got even worse for Democrats.
And this startling news could spell disaster for the Democrat politician who was waiting in the wings.
Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is next in line to replace Governor Northam if he chooses to resign.
So far Northam has balked at making his decision.
And we may have just learned the reason why.
Justin Fairfax has #MeToo allegations against him.
Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) — the official tipped to replace the state’s Gov. Ralph Northam (D), who is facing bipartisan calls to resign after a racist photo in his medical yearbook emerged, is denying recently resurfaced sexual assault allegations from 2004.
The alleged incident, which was reported by Big League Politics over the weekend, is said to have occurred during the 2004 Democrat National Convention. As WUSA9 reports, the Washington Post has not corroborated the claims, which the paper has been looking into for months.
In a statement released early Monday morning, a Fairfax spokesperson denied the allegation, affirming that the man who could be governor “has never assaulted anyone – ever – in any way, shape or form.”
The false allegations lobbed by Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh are coming back to bite Democrats.
Now things couldn’t get any worse for Northam, Fairfax, or Virginia Democrats.
Ralph Northam could choose to remain in office, which would lead to a red wave in Virginia’s odd year 2019 state elections.
Alternatively, Justin Fairfax could assume the office and create yet another public relations nightmare for Democrats.
In the meantime, Virginia Democrats are being forced to juggle with two high profile officials with major scandals on their hands.
Both of these stories come off the heels of Virginia Democrats announcing their support of abortion up to the moment of birth.
Virginia Democrats are caught up in a big mess that has blown up in their faces.
