Response to Empowerer (Original post)

15. Due process

The source of the allegations is always relevant. The allegation against Farifax is not new and out of the blue, however, it was not pursued because of lack of clear information. Right wingers don't care. They are using the current climate, which is powerful and positive for women, but in a sinister way because Right wingers couldn't care less about women. Fairfax is approaching the situation the only way possible from his perspective.

If the assault took place, then there is no alternative but for him to step down too. No if and or but. The problem is that we have two different perspectives and nothing that would definitively show who is more factually accurate. Unlike Kavanaugh where there were multiple sources supporting Ford's claim and she had shared the information with others prior to the accusation being made public, the only thing Fairfax's accuser did was go to the Washington Post during the election and shop a story. Like I said though, if he actually did assault the woman, then he has no place in a position of power. What he has or hasn't done after is irrelevant.

What we need is to see how this situation proceeds.
