The sexual assault allegations against Fairfax come in the middle of a political fire storm in Virginia, increased from day to day. Earlier, photos of Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam emerged from his medical school Yearbook, showing someone in blackface next to someone wearing a Ku Klux Klan costume. Democrats and Republicans alike have for Northam’s resignation, but the Governor, at this point, has refused and claims he was in this photo.
