While some national Democrats have called on Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, many national Democrats have been doing everything they can to avoid commenting on the imploding Democratic scandal in Virginia.
This of course was a marked difference from how they approached the uncorroborated allegations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Then they had no problem commenting, saying that Kavanaugh should withdraw, not be confirmed or have an FBI investigation.
And now with a second woman coming out and accusing Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax of rape, America Rising tried to track down Democrats in Washington, D.C. to get them on record.
The most notable person that they cornered was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
She, like others, refused to stop to answer the questions and kept running, saying, “Haven’t looked at all into the situation,” despite being a national story for a week.
She weighed in on the Kavanaugh accusations within 24 hours.
From Daily Wire:
“As Special Counsel, Brett Kavanaugh proposed a series of totally inappropriate + sexually explicit questions about Monica Lewinsky,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted the day after the Kavanaugh allegations surfaced. “Today he stands accused of sexual assault. How could any Senator allow his nomination to proceed without investigation?”
Other Democrats that America Rising confronted included Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Ted Lieu (D-CA), Lucy McBath (D-GA), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), and Cedric Richmond (D-LA).
All of them either ignored the question or said they didn’t know anything.
To be fair, Ocasio-Cortez is likely still working on the question of how to use rail to eliminate the need for air travel.
Lawyers for the second accuser, Meredith Watson, said they had evidence that Watson had told people immediately about the rape in 2000.
Dr. Vanessa Tyson, the first accuser, claimed that Fairfax had forced her to perform oral sex.
Fairfax is denying both allegations and refusing to resign.
