It's akin to the way any accusation against a Dem has been received by the left. When the Gov was revealed as a racist they jumped on him and demanded resignation. They are not so quick to do it with the other two because there is no way the Govt of Va will stay in the hands of the Dems. if they lose the other two as well. The hypocricy is glaring. Remember when Wild Willy was being fried for gettin ol kneepads to give him a BJ in the Oval office? Remember all the women who came forward to accuse him of multiple physical sexual attacks and were ignored by the see no evil womens rights groups? That kind of double and triple standard is their modus operandi demonstrated by their lack of coherent comment.This is the greatest bunch of hypocrisy there has ever been in politics. The msm wont touch it hardly. I guess rape and meto to only apply if it involves a Republican. If its a Democrat rape em if you can catch em is the rule
As of right now the only call for resignation is for Northam who to resign over black face costume fucking 30 years go. Its starting to get ridiculous. The left/communist party is not beginning to instill its first line of rational for political prisoners. This should be paid attention to. The Democrat party has now lost hold and is giving in to the communists. Its going to get ugly.There's now a second accuser. Looks bad.
Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax Accused of Sexual Assault by Second Woman, Meredith Watson
https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/07/politics/justin-fairfax-sexual-assault-resignation/index.htmlAsked earlier this week about the allegations against Fairfax, a series of high-profile Democrats reiterated their call for Northam to resign but wouldn't engage on that possibility in regard to Fairfax. "We will learn more about that," Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) said. "But it doesn't change the fact that Northam needs to resign."
Why the obvious double standard? Particularly given that Democrats have adopted a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to those accused of sexual assault -- insisting that women coming forward to make these allegations should be believed. (California Sen. Kamala Harris, inexplaining her vote against Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, said this: "When Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with serious and credible allegations of sexual assault, not only was she attacked by Senate Republicans, she was mocked by the President of the United States.")
The answer on "why" is complicated, but comes down to two things: Politics and race.
Let's start with the politics.
One of the main reasons politicians were so quick to call for Northam's resignation over the blackface picture that he was/wasn't in was because Fairfax was waiting in the wings -- a 39-year-old, African-American rising star within the party. What better way to button up a racial scandal than to replace the blackface-wearing governor with a young black politician who is the descendant of Virginia slaves? (When Fairfax was sworn in as lieutenant governor, he had the papers freeing his great-great-great grandfather with him.)
It was seen, rightly, by politicians and Democratic strategists as the most elegant possible solution to a very thorny political problem.
There is no similarly simple solution to the allegations against Fairfax. In fact, it's all grown much more complicated, with Fairfax battling sexual assault allegations while not only Northam, but also state Attorney General Mark Herring, are dealing with blackface allegations from their pasts.
