    Yeah, the fact that the lady retained Katz, Marshall and Banks (NPR is covering it too!) seems to indicate that this is going to get a lot weirder before it gets normaller.Report

    Hoo boy.

    Virginia Democratic Congressman Bobby Scott was made aware of allegations of sexual assault against now-Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax over a year ago by the alleged victim herself, ABC News has learned.

    Scott learned of the allegations directly from Dr. Vanessa Tyson, who on Wednesday released a statement detailing the alleged 2004 assault, which took place at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.

    Here’s the thing. There are a handful of avenues of attack to use against the credibility of an accuser.

    One is usually some variant of “why didn’t she tell someone?”
    Well, this story addresses that avenue of attack with a hearty “SHE DID”.Report

    NY Time article “A police sergeant in Virginia who was assigned to monitor the protests related to Gov. Ralph Northam was suspended Wednesday after being identified by an anti-fascist group as having an “affinity with white nationalist groups.”

    Where “affinity” appears to be putting it very mildly indeed, if you follow the link in the NYT article to the antifa blog post.Report
