Go figure: ‘Believe All Women’ Dems not so eager to discuss allegation against Virginia Lt. Gov. (Bernie fakes a phone call)

Welcome to Dodge City!

At the same time Virginia’s governor is spinning like a top after the emergence of a blackface photo from the 1980s, the state’s Lt. Governor is fending off a sexual harassment accusation:

Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who over the weekend was championed by many Democrats as a successor to embattled Gov. Ralph Northam, is now fiercely defending his own reputation in the face of a sexual assault allegation.

Fairfax said it was no coincidence that the allegation, which was published on the same conservative website Sunday night that first published a photo from Northam’s page in the 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook showing a man in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan outfit, surfaced just days after the Northam bombshell.

“Does anybody think it’s any coincidence that on the eve of potentially my being elevated that that’s when this uncorroborated smear comes out? Does anybody believe that’s a coincidence?” Fairfax asked a swarm of reporters Monday at the Capitol, where the lieutenant governor presided over the Senate chamber during a long day of legislative business.

Remember what happened after the uncorroborated Brett Kavanaugh allegations? The Democrats were in full “BELIEVE ALL WOMEN” mode, but now?

And what does Bernie “we need a national discussion about sexual harassment and abuse of power” Sanders think about a woman’s allegation against Justin Fairfax? Comrade Bernie went to “fake a phone call” extremes in order to dodge that question:

Instant hypocrisy classic!
