WFB: Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D.), who is facing two allegations of sexual assault, is being denied a table at the Democratic Party of Virginia’s Blue Commonwealth Gala fundraiser in June.
Fairfax’s team was ready to donate $2,500 from its political action committee to the Democratic Party of Virginia to reserve a table, but the party said it would not accept the donation, prompting Fairfax to push back through a statement from his spokeswoman, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
“The Lt. Governor’s We Rise Together PAC was planning to have a group of African-American pastors and other supporters sit at his table. He is innocent and has passed two polygraphs and repeatedly called for an investigation,” Fairfax’s spokeswoman Lauren Burke said. “DPVA has assumed he is guilty of a violent criminal act with no investigation or even a conversation to ascertain his version of events.” read more
