A Man Without A Party.
When it rains it pours and then you get hit by a truck. If that happened to you I bet you are still having a better day than Lt Gov. Fairfax from the Commonwealth of Virginia.
In addition to a slew of other officials in the Democratic party dumping on Fairfax the last 48 hours, now comes word via a tweet that the Virginia Democrats want nothing to do with him.

This is not shocking being the whole state of Virginia is in an uproar and making Robert Byrd’s West Virginia look normal right now. Political pile on’s used to take months to build but in the age of social media, they can happen in days if not hours.
Also with the revelation that some in the Virginia legislature want to impeach him if he does not resign by Monday, it seems unlikely he will be able to hold on for the next 24 hours. When you lose the official support of your party your goose is cooked.
The only thing left now for Fairfax is the official statement of resignation and will he do a live press conference.
