    It could get messy


    Virginia Lt. Gov.'s accuser willing to testify at impeachment hearings

    Lawyers representing a college professor who alleged Virginia Lieutenant Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) sexually assaulted her say their client is willing to testify at impeachment proceedings or to cooperate with law enforcement in an investigation of her claims.

    In a statement Saturday night, attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks write that Vanessa Tyson is "fully prepared" to testify under oath on her claim that Fairfax assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.

    "In response to two credible claims of sexual assault, by women with no connection to one another, Lt. Governor Fairfax has claimed that the women lied about what he insists were consensual sexual encounters and has baselessly and callously attempted to discredit these women"

    "We are confident that once the Virginia legislature hears Dr. Tysonís harrowing account of this sexual assault, the testimony of many corroborating witnesses, and evidence of his attempts to mislead the public about The Washington Postís decision not to run a story in 2018, it will conclude that he lacks the character, fitness and credibility to serve in any capacity"

    Gov Northam calls Virginia slaves "indentured servants"

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam: "We are now at the 400-year anniversary — just 90 miles from here in 1619. The first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Old Point Comfort, what we call now Fort Monroe."

    Some lady was on CNN she was implying that if Fairfax is impeached and Northam is left alone that is very racist. To me if the allegations against fairfax are true you should not compare being raped to dressing up in black face a couple decades ago.

    If I thought posting my opinions on Facebook actually had any real effect on anyone or anything, I might feel some obligation. The reality is most people today arenít at all interested in learning or considering anything contradictory to their own views. Itís a waste of time and energy.

    BLM is always pissed off anyway, but women's groups are only pissed off when the alleged assaulter is a Republican.

    Personally, I hope they both stay. It does no good to ruin someone's life over something from 35 years ago, and it does no good to ruin someone's life using a lack of due process. I disagree with aeverything these two stand for, but this having your life ruined through virtue signaling and shaming has to stop.

    The Bettis incident has made me skeptical of accusers. Today the Steelers would have been forced to cut him, before
    he could prove he was being extorted.

    Yeah, I remember when you were this dubious of the allegations against Trump. Oh, wait, YOU WEREN'T.

    And I also remember when you were critical of the unsubstantiated (indeed, refuted) allegation against Kavanaugh, and the asinine, recanted claims of "serial gang rapes." Oh, wait, once again, YOU WEREN'T.

    And how you wanted evidence to support a claim of purported "collusion" involving the Russians. Hold on, now that I remember, YOU WEREN'T.

    You make up your mind as to the allegation based on who is being accused, not the merits of the allegation. Any claim to the contrary is obliterated by your own posts about Kavanaugh, and Trump, and Russia, and gang rapes.

    I guarantee you there are women who were quite willingly grabbed and kissed and otherwise molested by Trump (barf, personally) because they were blinded by dollar signs. Stormy Daniels knew him for all of about 10 minutes before she hopped in the sack with him. So in that sense what he said was actually pretty accurate. I know it's not a popular opinion among my feminist sisters, but some women really are whores for money and celebrity.

    Actually, Africans were indentured servants in the beginning. There are many records of Africans, once paying off their servitude, becoming free men and themselves owning negro indentured servents. For most of the 1600's it was like this.

    It wasn't until something like early 1700's that laws were enacted to segregate the blacks and make them eternally indentured and continue to erode what limited rights indentured servents even had back then. I think one of the reasons the hammer came down was because of slave revolts in the Caribbean and the general pervasive attitude at the time that blacks were more prone to violence (which wasn't the case), it was just easier to stereotype based on the news coming from other places in the world with a majority of black slaves and the rise in revolts.

    Look, it's a horrible history but we shouldn't run away from it nor discuss it with kid gloves. The era of 1500 to 1800 was a time of bloody conquest. The technology to traverse the ocean and bring continents closer together created a have and have not situation. The more advanced, violent culture won. And unfortunately, the ramifications of "losing" meant cultural eradication, slavery, stolen wealth, etc.

    What frustrates my discussion of this is the thinking this started with the European advancement into the New World, when in reality, it was part of human civiliazation for as long as recorded history (and even before that). Man has always killed it's rivals when it could. Always. We might like to think we're more enlightened here in the 21st century, but we are still less than 100 years from two world wars. There is genicide happening in parts of the world as we speak. There is still endentured servitude and slavery. There are countries will little to no human rights at all.

    It's just odd white europeans are the only ones the left seems to want to apologize. I don't hear them say the Aztec peoples should be apologizing and paying reparations to the other tribes they rapes, pillaged and plundered over hundreds of years.

    I used to hang with a former Penguins player who shall remain nameless and work on some charity events with him. It was disgusting the way women would throw themselves at him. Disgusting because they weren't throwing themselves at me (I was single at the time).

    Except that Northam was correct. The first blacks that arrived in Va. were indentured servants...but rather than Northam stand his ground and correct Gayle King, he gladly succumbed to her little "also known as slaves" interjection.
    He really had no choice. To dispute her would be suicide, so he gladly played along.

    The difference between the way an interviewer approaches Dem accused of wrongdoing vs. a Republican is glaring.

    "We're here to help" is the tone set when interviewing a Dem.

    "We're here to take you down" is the tone when they interview a Rep.
