Va. Lt. Gov. uses all purpose race card defense.

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) -- Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax addressed the scandals surrounding him today to the Senate moments before the Legislative session ended.
Fairfax compared the way he's been treated to political lynching, saying people are rushing to judgment before the sexual assault allegations are investigated.
"If we allow for political lynchings without any due process, any facts, any evidence being heard, then I think we do a disservice to this body in which we all serve."
"Should anyone decide that they desire to see a downfall of me or the constitution or of victims or of anyone else, I would just ask that you look and reflect and think about who you are, think about who we are and think about who we want to be.”
Embattled Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax compared himself to Jim Crow-era lynching victims in a surprise speech Sunday, as he resists widespread calls to resign prompted by allegations of sexual assault.
