Democratic senators who condemned Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct allegations refused to acknowledge the sexual assault allegations that have emerged against Virginia Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax when asked by The Daily Caller News Foundation Thursday.
When asked if the same standard should be applied to Fairfax, a Democrat, as it was applied to Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings, the five Democratic senators asked, who all opposed Kavanaugh’s confirmation due to the allegations, all dodged the question or acted like they had not heard about it, despite the fact it has been major national news for nearly a week.
Democratic Virginia Mark Sen. Warner would not answer questions about the accusations when asked by reporters on Thursday, saying they were in a hurry to vote on the Senate floor.
Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine told reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday that they “don’t have an investigation” into the accusations made by Fairfax’s accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson.
