Second woman accuses Virginia Lieutenant Governor of rape

February 9, 2019

  The state of affairs in Virginia politics is ugly to say the least. The Governor and the Attorney General have both admitted to engaging in racist activities in the past and the Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax, has even bigger problems because now a second woman has come out and accused him of raping her.

  Here is more:

A second woman has come forward accusing Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Virginia Justin Fairfax of rape. 

Meredith Watson released a letter through her lawyer on Friday calling for Fairfax’s resignation claiming he sexually assaulted her in 2000 when they were both students at Duke University.  

‘Mr. Fairfax’s attack was premeditated and aggressive. The two were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship,’ the letter states.  

Watson’s attorney does not provide specific details of the attack but states the assault was ‘similar’ to that of Vanessa Tyson, who on Wednesday, publicly accused Fairfax of raping her in 2004.  

  To be fair, we have no idea if these accusations are true but in today’s politics it no longer matters and the accusations alone are enough to end a career and destroy a reputation.

 We saw this with Herman Cain, Roy Moore, and most recently with Brett Kavanaugh. In the cases of Herman Cain and Roy Moore it ended their political aspirations while Brett Kavanaugh survived but is still  facing backlash and probably will for the rest of his life. In all three cases all the accusers went away when there was no longer anything political to gain from these men.

  If we are holding everybody to the same standard here then all women deserve to be believed with no questions asked, which means that Justin Fairfax is guilty and must step down. To paraphrase Harry Reid when he  accused Mitt Romney of not paying taxes for ten years, the accusation has been made it is up to Justin Fairfax to prove he is not guilty. This of course is 180 degrees backwards but such is life in American politics today.

    The loss of due process when it comes to public opinion of public officials is a travesty. In a country where we epitomize innocent until proven guilty in our judicial system, it’s a shame that in the court of public opinion you are presumed guilty until proven innocent.
