Virginia: Accused Rapist Justin Fairfax Made #MeToo ‘Enemies List’ Before Announcing Run for Governor

WFB: Virginia Lt. Gov. bookmarks fellow Dems who crossed him in bizarre Twitter spree.

More than 18 months after apologizing for wearing a “racist and offensive” costume in a medical school yearbook photo, Ralph “Coonman” Northam is still the Democratic governor of Virginia. The race to succeed him in 2021 has already begun.

Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D., Va.) announced his candidacy last week. Ironically enough, Fairfax is largely responsible for Northam’s resiliency in the face of a racism scandal that no Republican politician and few other Democrats would be able to survive.

Just when it seemed as though Northam would be forced to resign—and replaced by Fairfax, who is black—the lieutenant governor himself was embroiled in a scandal after two women accused Fairfax of sexual assault.

Some Democrats called on Fairfax to resign as well—until the third-ranking Democrat in the state, Attorney General Mark Herring, admitted to wearing blackface in his youth. All three men ended up keeping their jobs.

Based on his recent social media activity, Fairfax seems determined to keep track of the Democratic colleagues who called for his resignation amid the sexual assault allegations, which he denies. Fairfax accused one of the alleged victims of doing “grave harm to the worthy #MeToo movement by using it to make this fabricated & false allegation.” more here
