The chaos currently gripping the Virginia Democrat Party has been made worse, with Lt Gov. Fairfax’s accuser now hiring Blasey Ford’s attorneys. Fox News reports:
The woman accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault has reportedly retained the law firm that represented Christine Blasey Ford — the California lawyer who accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed and trying to undress her at a party decades ago.
The Associated Press and other outlets reported that the woman, who has accused Fairfax of sexual assault during the 2004 Democratic National Convention, has retained Katz Marshall & Banks and is consulting about next steps.
Debra Katz represented Ford during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing as she eventually testified about an alleged assault by Kavanaugh at a high school party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh denied the accusation, as well as others made against him, and was eventually confirmed to the Supreme Court. Katz Marshall & Banks did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.
Fairfax, too, has adamantly denied the claim made against him, saying that while there was a sexual encounter, it was consensual. He also slammed The Washington Post on Monday after it published details of the woman’s account and disputed Fairfax’s claim that it had found “significant red flags and inconsistencies” in his accuser’s story in 2017.
This is particularly fitting, as Democrats are now reaping what they have sown.
