SWAMP WATCH: 4th Democrat Busted in Virginia Scandal
Yikes. Has anyone else noticed that there are virtually no Republican scandals other than the Fake News Media Narrative Witch Hunt against Donald Trump? Oh yeah, You can be assured: Democrats believe everything they hear and read.
Of course, what about the lack of coverage on these matters? Public officials have to take to twitter just to get the message out because of that lack of coverage. Amazing.

The series of scandals that have brought Virginia Democrats to their knees over the last week worsened after a new bombshell report was released on Wednesday night that alleges a Democratic lawmaker knew about the sexual assault allegations against Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax for over a year.
ABC News reports that Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) was made aware of the allegations directly from Fairfax’s accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson, “who on Wednesday released a statement detailing the alleged 2004 assault, which took place at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.”
“Allegations of sexual assault need to be taken seriously,” Scott said in a statement to ABC News. “I have known Professor Tyson for approximately a decade and she is a friend. She deserves the opportunity to have her story heard.”
Aides to Scott told ABC News that Tyson told Scott on October 20, 2017 that she was “not a fan” of Fairfax, who at the time was a candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor.
The following month, Tyson continued to disclose her dislike for Fairfax to Scott and told Scott that she wanted to “talk about it” with him.
In December 2017, Tyson allegedly told Scott that Fairfax had a “MeToo allegation,” and over the next month, Scott’s aides learned that Tyson was the alleged victim.
ABC News further noted that Tyson “hired the legal services of Katz, Marshall and Banks, the same law firm that was retained by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor who accused Brett Kavanaugh, then-President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, of sexual misconduct.”
