Terry McAuliffe (Terry McAuliffe) is the main candidate for the Democratic primary of the governor of Virginia this year. During a debate on Tuesday night, opponents faced a series of attacks. Widely supported. In the most extraordinary aspect, the black lieutenant governor of the state, Justin Fairfax, accused Mr. McOliver of being like George Floyd or Emmet Teal (Emmett). Till) treated him because Mr. Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by two women in 2019.
Mr. McAuliffe, the country’s white former governor who has the backing of many countries’ top black elected officials, released a public call for Mr. Fairfax’s resignation this year.
The allegation was made at the end of the debate, and this is the first time five Virginia Democratic parties have run for governor. Fairfax responded to a question asking candidates to envision the prospects for law enforcement in Virginia. He said that the theoretical description is unnecessary because he is a vivid manifestation of false accusations and the hazards of eager judgment.
Mr. Fairfax said: “Everyone on this stage is asking me to resign immediately, including Terry McAuliffe three minutes after the press release.” “He is like George Floyd. Treated me like Emmett Till, he treated me like Emmett Till, without proper procedures, immediately made me feel guilty. I have a son, I have a daughter, and I don’t want my daughter to be beaten. I don’t want my son to be wrongly accused. This is the real world we live in. Therefore, we need to speak the truth about power, and we need to be very clear about how this affects people’s lives.”
Mr. McOlive did not respond to Mr. Fairfax during the debate. His spokesperson declined to speak.
In February 2019, in a simultaneous scandal involving the medical yearbook governor Ralph Northam (Gal. Ralph Northam), two women accused Fairfax. The husband sexually assaulted them in other episodes-Mr. Fairfax has consistently denied this accusation. Mr. Fairfax faces high calls for resignation. A few weeks later, in a speech in the Virginia State Senate, he compared himself to a victim of lynching.
Mr. Fairfax was not the only candidate trying to split black voters from Mr. McOliver on Tuesday night. There were few public votes on this race, and it was found that Mr. McAuliffe had a considerable lead over his four opponents, and none of the surveys showed that he had a less than two to one advantage over his closest opponent.
State Senator Jennifer McClellan (Jennifer McClellan), who was running for governor, accused McAuliffe of insufficient funds for the state’s parole system. During his tenure as governor, he reached an agreement with the National Rifle Association and has Become an advocate of racial justice.
Ms. McClellan of Black said: “Race justice is more than just criminal justice reform.” “It’s embedded in every system we have in the government. I don’t need George Floyd. ) Murder or unity rights rally to teach me this.”
In his speech, Mr. McAuliffe emphasized his relationship with Mr. Northam and President Biden. Both Democrats should be attributed to the strong relationship and support with black voters. He highlighted the move to restore voting rights for the state’s 206,000 felons, and said that every police officer in the state should wear a body camera “so that we can know what’s going on.”
He said: “Thank God, when George Floyd was murdered, all of us who had cell phones there were there.
Mr. McAuliffe hardly mentioned his rivals in the debate, only reminding the audience that Ms. McLellan was often his partner when he was governor. However, at the end of the debate, Mr. Fairfax tried to define himself as the weak former governor’s main competitor.
Fairfax said: “There seem to be two sets of rules. The governor can have a dialogue according to his own wishes. As long as he wants to do, he can do what he wants, and the other applies to everyone else.” I think this is part of the problem. There are indeed many disparities in our society.”
