Congrats To New Virginia Governor – Carl The Janitor!

Virginia is a beautiful state with many wonderful, patriotic people. The Virginia Democrat Party? 

Not so much.

After an exhaustive search for someone, anyone, in state government not bitten by the scandal bug it appears the state has finally found its new governor.

Good luck Carl. You have a big mess to clean up but by gosh you’re definitely the man for that job!


 

Oh Boy…Virginia Lt. Governor (A Democrat) Now Faces Sexual Assault Allegations.

Mere days after the Virginia governor was trying to explain away embarrassing black face and Klan pics from a medical school yearbook, (as well as trying to defend supporting infanticide) that same state’s Lt. Governor is going into spin cycle as a sexual assault allegation resurfaces. Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax was being enthusiastically pushed by far left Dems to replace Governor Ralph Northam. Much of that push was apparently the result of Fairfax being black and Northam white. Now, both men’s political careers are facing increasingly strong headwinds.

 

Via Fox News:

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax issued a forceful pre-dawn denial on Monday to an allegation of sexual assault that surfaced after 15 years, in the latest political bombshell to rock Richmond where Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam is battling resignation calls over a racist photo from his medical school yearbook.

Fairfax, who would be next in line for governor should Northam bow to pressure and resign, called the allegation “defamatory” and “false.”

…The denial comes amid a political firestorm in Virginia, as a photo of the governor emerged showing a man in blackface and another in Ku Klux Klan garb in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Northam, on Saturday, denied being in the photo, despite admitting to being in the picture a day earlier, and instead acknowledged darkening his face for another occasion that same year, when he dressed as singer Michel Jackson as part of a talent contest.

He explained that he initially admitted to being in the photo, but “in the hours since I made my statement, I reflected with family and classmates from that time and it affirmed my conclusion that I am not the person in that photograph.”

Northam called the image “offensive” and “racist,” but said he had nothing to do with the preparation of the yearbook and did not purchase it.

Northam asserted repeatedly over the weekend that he would not resign from his post, despite a wave of criticism from 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, Democratic lawmakers and Republicans demanding he leave office.

If Northam did agree to resign from his post, Fairfax would assume the governorship. Over the weekend, Fairfax condemned the racist photo and said he “cannot condone the actions from his past.”


 

Viriginia State Senator Practices Open Carry While Presenting Bills To Senate

State Sen. Amanda Chase, R-Chesterfield, created a bit of a stir this past week when she decided to wear her revolver hanging from her hip while presenting new legislation to her senate colleagues. Senator Chesterfield is a strong advocate of the 2nd Amendment and a woman’s right to choose – to bear arms to protect herself.

Chase said she always carries her gun in concealed fashion but decided Tuesday was a good day to carry openly when she presented her bills in the Senate Privileges and Elections Committee. Her legislation included an alternative to the Equal Rights Amendment resolution that reaffirms equal protection under the law.

The first-term senator — a fan of government transparency and opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment — said she wore the gun following an incident Monday in which Capitol Police were called after immigration-rights supporters confronted Sen. Dick Black, R-Loudoun.

“Sometimes it’s a deterrent for over-exuberant folks. Unfortunately in the General Assembly we see the good, we see the bad, we see all types of things,” she said. “It’s just for personal safety, quite honestly.”

While carrying a concealed handgun in Virginia requires a permit, carrying openly does not.

Black said Monday on the Senate floor that after he presented a bill against “sanctuary cities” he was “swarmed by a group of people taking pictures and being rather confrontational.”
