    We’ve now set a dangerous precedent. Lives and careers are able to be destroyed by simple accusations without the accuser ever having to file formally and have to face the system. Some me may think it’s a win for the me too movement. But I think it’s a disaster. Justin Fairfax May very well be completely innocent. But it no longer matters. And he’ll never have the chance to formally confront his accuser.
  3. Reading more about Frank, I just learned that he went to HS with, and played basketball with Bill Russell and also that Curt Flood was on his HS baseball team. Wow.

    Lots of Dems were saying things like "we believe her" etc etc.

    It cant be proven either way. That's not the point though. The Dems nationally and Warner/Kaine from VA werent saying that during Kavanaugh. They would look terrible if they apply a different standard now to one of their own.

    If the accuser recants, then obviously. But if not, I dont see how it can be proven one way or another. She hasnt filed a lawsuit (that I know of).

    I read your comment before and it's the correct stance to take. Unfortunately for the Dems, that's not how the majority of them acted with Kavanaugh.

    No way can the Dems support Fairfax after Kavanaugh.

    Of course they cant. I dont think anyone expects them too either. But they also cant all stay in office.

    Politically speaking, the best course of action for the Dems is for Fairfax to resign now, let Northam pick his replacement quickly, and then have Northam resign. It will probably hurt in a few races this November, but not as much as doing nothing will. And they cant all resign at once and let the GOP take over the Statehouse before redistricting. And it doesnt matter what Herring does or when. His political career is over and nobody gives a **** about the AG position other than as a stepping stone.

    Restating. The Senate leader takes over the LT Gov seat until the Gov appoints a replacement. But that replacement only lasts until the next election. Which would be Nov 2019. So Fairfax could resign, Northam could appoint a replacement. Then Northam resigns and the replacement becomes Gov not sure how that would play at the ballot box in Nov though

    https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/06/virginia-governor-northam-fairfax-herring-1152310 The succession process for the lieutenant governorship gets complicated. If Fairfax either becomes governor or resigns, he will vacate his current office and the state Senate president pro tem, Republican Steve Newman, would be empowered to “discharge the duties” of the lieutenant governorship, said John Dinan, a Wake Forest professor and expert on state constitutions. That arrangement would likely be short-lived, because the governor has “constitutional authority to fill the vacancy in the office of lieutenant governor,” said A.E. Dick Howard, a law professor at the University of Virginia who led the drafting of Virginia’s current state constitution in the late 1960s and early 1970s. However, the appointment would only last for a few months, Howard and Dinan said. Under Virginia law, an election to fill the remainder of Fairfax’s original term as lieutenant governor would be held this November, when every state legislative seat in Virginia will also be up in the regular 2019 elections. Then, there would be a regularly scheduled election for a full four-year lieutenant governor term in 2021. So if Fairfax resigns, the GOP leader in the Senate takes over until the Governor appoints the next Lt Gov, but that would only last until the next election, so VA would elect a new (2 year term) Lt Governor in November.

    Does the Governors appointed Lt Gov. replacement need to be approved by the legislature?
