The Washington Examiner reached out for comment from Tyson's campaign and Fairfax's office.

In her state Assembly campaign, Tyson is running on a platform of affordable housing, education, and environmental protection, among other issues. Her campaign website makes no mention of Fairfax and her allegations against him.

The Southern California area she seeks to represent was once the college stomping grounds of future Republican President Richard Nixon, but is now heavily Democratic.
