The latest:Loudoun County prosecutor who sought to jail father of girl allegedly raped at school tied to Soros, McAuliffe
Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj was described in the explosive report by The Daily Wire as the "progressive" elected county prosecutor who ran on a platform of ending "mass incarceration," but yet she sought jail time for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, both misdemeanor charges, against Scott Smith.
Biberaj was one of several Soros-backed prosecutors elected in Northern Virginia in 2019 after her campaign received more than $860,000 from Soros' Justice and Public Safety PAC. She is a criminal reform advocate and member of a group of the commonwealth’s attorneys called Virginia Progressive Prosecutors for Justice, which calls for eliminating mandatory minimum sentences and cash bail.
Biberaj is also a close ally with McAuliffe, who reportedly accepted a $250,000 contribution from Soros for his campaign in August. Biberaj, who has praised McAulliffe as being "part of the progress" that Virginia needs, joined the former Democratic governor as recently as Oct. 2 at a campaign event in Leesburg.
Loudoun email reveals superintendent notified school board on day of alleged sexual assault
The superintendent for Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) sent an email alerting the school board of an alleged assault on the same day as the one that has captured national headlines.
"The purpose of this email is to provide you with information regarding an incident that occurred at Stone Bridge HS," Superintendent Scott Ziegler said in the email. "This afternoon a female student alleged that a male student sexually assaulted her in the restroom."
On June 22, Ziegler said that, to his knowledge, "we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms," according to the Daily Wire.
The public and school libraries are going to be thinning out if this keeps up.

Virginia parents slam Obama's 'tone-deaf' dismissal of education issues amid alleged sexual assault
Former President Barack Obama condemned Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin for focusing on hot-button education issues during the campaign, dismissing those issues as unserious and "fake outrage." Virginia parents and parent advocates shot back at Obama's remarks, calling them "tone deaf" and "clueless."
"We don't have time to be wasting on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage that right-wing media peddles to juice their ratings," Obama said while campaigning for Democrat Terry McAuliffe on Saturday. He accused Youngkin of avoiding "serious problems that affect serious people" and suggested that outrage over the actions of school boards is unjustified.
Students in Loudoun County, Virginia, staged a walkout in protest of recent sexual assault cases at the public school system and to show solidarity with victims of such abuses.
A judge found a boy guilty on Monday of sexually assaulting a girl in the girls' bathroom last spring at Stone Bridge High School. The boy was reportedly wearing a skirt during the incident.
Huh? What gender or sex is 'clerk'?University of Pittsburgh department puts 'secretary,' 'clerk,' and 'omsbudsman' on 'sexist language' list
The University of Pittsburgh has declared that terms such as "secretary," "clerk," and "omsbudsman" are considered "Sexist Language."
A new "Gender-Inclusive/Non-Sexist Language Guidelines and Resources" page made by the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at the University of Pittsburgh features a section titled "Terms to Use to Avoid Sexist Language." The guide also considers "mankind," "chairman," "freshman," and "ladies and gentlemen" examples of "Sexist Language" that is considered "Language Not to Use."
Instead, the guidelines released by the university department recommended that "first year student" should be used instead of "freshman" and "administrator" should be used instead of "Secretary/Clerk."
In a similar "Sexist Language" guide written by the University of Pittsburgh Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program, the term "stewardess" is considered "Sexist Language" as well, and the guide recommends that students use "flight attendant" instead.
Scott Kiesling, a linguistics professor at the University of Pittsburgh and an author of the guide, stated on the university website that people should use "non-sexist language" out of "politeness."
"No one is ordering you to use this language. However, some people are asking you to be considerate of their wishes and sensibilities. In short, it's merely politeness -- politeness is about consideration for other people," Kiesling writes. "You are free to not use this language (it is merely a suggestion for those who would like to know how people would like to handle such things)."
