In the bizarre and politically incestuous world of democratic politics, some faces and names just can’t seem to find their way back to obscurity with ease.
Such is the case for the lawyers once hired to represent a woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of attempted sexual assault in the early 80’s.
A woman accusing Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D-VA) of sexual assault has hired the law firm that represented Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who brought forth a decades-old and uncorroborated claim of sexual misconduct against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
According to the Associated Press, the woman has retained Washington, D.C., law firm Katz Marshall & Banks and is consulting with the firm about next steps, citing a person close to the legal team who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity. One of the firm’s founding partners, Debra Katz, represented Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh denied the allegation and later was confirmed to the court.
Fairfax is next in line to be Governor of Virginia behind Ralph Northam, who is currently being implored to resign by the democratic party leadership.
Northam was revealed to have been a part of a terribly racist photograph taken for his medical school yearbook, in which the Governor is either wearing blackface or disguised under the traditional robes of the Ku Klux Klan.
With Fairfax also in hot water over his previous actions, it looks as though Virginia will have some difficult decisions to make about their delinquent democrats soon enough.
