No impeachment, no resignations

They might be racist, but they're democrats.

From AP:

Virginia lawmaker backs off fast track for impeachment bill

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Virginia lawmaker on Monday backed off his plans to swiftly introduce an impeachment bill seeking the ouster of the state’s leading black elected official as Democrats struggled to address revelations of past racist behavior and allegations of sexual assault roiling its highest levels of office.

The effort to impeach Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was prompted by the emergence of two women who accused him of sexual assault in the 2000s. Fairfax has vehemently denied the claims and called for authorities, including the FBI, to investigate.

1. Party over principle, eh demmies?

The white guy won't leave and that makes impeaching your rapist look racist.

So, now you're stuck with both.

3. lefty has no morals, just agendas

 

in this case we see which agenda was weaker..

The good news is that we can point to VA as examples where they are OK with pound me too and white privilege.

I intend to play the VA card every chance I get.

8. Maybe not

But the only recent public official forced to resign over blackface was the republican secretary of state in Florida.

12. This is not an issue I care deeply about

It's a stultifying mix of stupid and butthurt. Rape is another matter entirely.

11. Wait a minute. There is no evidence that Fairfax is racist.

Pretty much looks like he is a serial rapist, but no evidence that he is racist.

And of course he is a Democrat.

15. Good. Maybe now we can move on from this weaponized idiocy.

Liberals have proven they really don't care about rape, misogyny and racism.

17. the AG shouldn't be impeached...yet.

There should, however, be an investigation and public hearings. Impeachment can wait until it's proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

18. That's my take on this. So far, we have allegations.

Let's let the facts pan out before we go on a witch hunt for the guy. If it does pan out, then fry his ass (legally speaking)
