You know, Virginia Democrats have it pretty damn good. Gov. Ralph Northam advocates for infanticide and gets busted for a blackface photo and he’s still sitting pretty. Why shouldn’t Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax assume he’ll be fine, too?

More from the Virginian-Pilot:

Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, a Democrat who has been involved in a sexual assault scandal since February, told a group of senior citizens at Fort Lee on Wednesday that he planned to run for governor, The Progress-Index in Petersburg first reported.

On Thursday, his spokeswoman Lauren Burke confirmed the news.

That’s nice.

“Innocent until proven guilty” applies to everyone, regardless of political party. It applies to Justin Fairfax, too. But we can’t help but feel like Fairfax would be run out on a rail if he had an (R) after his name.

It really is.
