The Governor and Lt. Governor in Virginia may not be friends anymore…

Governor Northam and Lt. Fairfax are both beset by scandals.

And the hits keep coming. It seems as if the state of Virginia, specifically its state level leadership, wants to take on the mantle of most dysfunctional executives in the United States.

By now, I’m sure that most of us have heard the saga of Governor Ralph Northam and his denial, non-denial of certain costume wearing activities in college that ended up in a yearbook. While Northam and his team tried to cover the tracks from that, and amid calls for his resignation, his lieutenant governor was hit with allegations of his own.

Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention. Now, the story has not been corroborated and there remains scant evidence that verifies the accusation and Fairfax has emphasized that he believes the encounter was consensual.

But in a new twist, Fairfax has identified who he believes is the culprit behind this alleged smear campaign: Governor Northam.

As Matt Vespa at Townhall stated:

Mr. Fairfax said the incident he’s being accused of was a consensual encounter, and that the governor’s office may be behind it to bar him from becoming governor. Of course, Northam’s office denies this is happening, but the shots have already been fired inside the ship.

So, the country is getting to witness this spectacular crash and burn of the top Democrats in Virginia, a reliably blue state in recent years. However this plays out, it’ll be a wild ride to the finish.
