But hey, if it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.
Via Daily Wire:
Hypocrisy alert: The Virginia Democrat who was told about the sexual assault allegation against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax in 2017 urged the U.S. Senate not to vote for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over uncorroborated allegations of sexual assault.
Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) was told about the sexual assault allegation against Fairfax in late 2017 by the accuser herself, Vanessa Tyson.
“Allegations of sexual assault need to be taken seriously,” Scott told ABC News in a statement. “I have known Professor Tyson for approximately a decade and she is a friend. She deserves the opportunity to have her story heard.”
Scott, however, is not calling for Fairfax to step down and it is unclear what, if anything, he did with the information his friend gave him. WTVR reports that Scott’s name was given to The Washington Post, who was investigating her claims, as someone who could “attest to her character.”
