It’s always important to look for patterns in these cases, and now there appears to be one with Justin Fairfax. He’s in a very precarious position, but one support he’ll have is the reluctance to throw him overboard if Northam and Herring stay. But Fairfax’s alleged crimes are obviously vastly more serious than what Northam and Herring have confessed to 30 or 40 years ago. If there’s credible evidence of his guilt, he should go, regardless of what happens to the other state-level officials. That said, there should be some sort of due process and investigation, perhaps as part of an impeachment process.
