On Superbowl Sunday, Big League Politics reported that Virginia’s Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax had sexual assault allegations posed against him by Vanessa Tyson.

Vanessa Tyson accused him of having sexually assaulted her at the DNC Convention in Boston, Massachusetts in 2004.

By Monday morning, Lt. Gov. Fairfax admitted that he knew about the allegations, threatened to sue Big League Politics for printing the article, and then defended himself, by stating that his name was allegedly cleared by the Washington Post journalists! He said…

“The person reported to be making this false allegation first approached the Washington Post – one of the nation’s most prominent newspapers – more than a year ago, around the time of the Lieutenant Governor’s historic inauguration. The Post carefully investigated the claim for several months. After being presented with the facts consistent with the Lt. Governor’s denial of the allegation, the absence of any evidence corroborating the allegation, and significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegation, the Post made the considered decision not to publish the story.”

The full statement is below…

However, does the Washington Post have the authority to decide guilt or innocence in regards to who committed crimes, and who did not? Why did the Washington Post run unsubstantiated 30-year-old sexual assault allegations against Judge Roy Moore in 2017, which changed the outcome of an election, and without proof? Why did the Washington Post drop the investigation of Roy Moore, after the election was over? Did the sexual assault allegations matter less, or was it all political? Why did the Washington Post repeatedly publish unsubstantiated 34-year-old sexual assault allegations against Justice Bret Kavanaugh without evidence? Why did the Washington Post run smear campaign articles against potential witnesses who refuted every assault charge that was widely publicized by the Washington Post?

Ultimately, The Washington Post has become nothing more than a propaganda paper for the radical left! They dig for dirt on anyone who opposes the Marxist or Socialist agenda, while burying and covering up stories on those who they want to protect! Therefore, the Washington Post is no longer a true journalistic publication, but instead a propaganda mouthpiece for the now-radicalized left!

Not only is this important for the sake of journalistic standards in America, but it is  important, being it is highly likely that the current sitting Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam is likely to resign in the near future, amid his own scandals including his KKK and blackface yearbook photo and his promotion of infanticide last week! That means that Virginia’s Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax (D-VA) would take his place as Governor!

On Monday, the Washington Post acknowledged that it was investigating the claims, and admitted that they had decided not to publish. They went on to say that Virginia’s  Lt. Governor Fairfax “incorrectly” claimed the paper found “significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations.” They stated that…

“Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present. The Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version.”

Furthermore, although the paper failed to name the accuser, they did say that Fairfax and the woman met first met in Boston at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. They said…

“The woman described a sexual encounter that began with consensual kissing and ended with a forced act that left her crying and shaken. She said Fairfax guided her to the bed, where they continued kissing, and then at one point she realized she could not move her neck. She said Fairfax used his strength to force her to perform oral sex.”

Therefore, while the Lt. Governor’s allegations should be investigated by the proper authorities for validity or lack thereof, and while Lt. Governor Fairfax deserves the benefit of innocence until proven guilty unlike the treatment that Kavanaugh and Moore received, the Washington Post has proven that it not only says that “Democracy Dies in Darkness”, but it lives by it! Sadly, The Washington Post pushes for readership subscriptions on their website, as they claim that the story must be told…

However, instead of publishing the truth, fictional stories appear to be their forte, as they have become more of a tabloid publication, rather than news reporting agency! Therefore, while they say “The story must be told“, the Washington Post proves to be poised to become the next tabloid, as they bury stories like the Lt. Governors alleged sexual assault while promoting unproven and biased allegations designed to alter the political and ideological landscape for decades to come!
