Robert Cortez “Bobby” Scott (born April 30, 1947 (age 73)) is a left-wing Democrat serving as the current U.S. representative from Virginia's 3rd congressional district, having been elected to the position in 1992. He previously served in the Virginia State Senate, and in the state's House of Delegates prior to that.

U.S. House of Representatives

1986 election

Scott unsuccessfully ran for United States House of Representatives in 1986 from Virginia's 1st congressional district, having been defeated by Republican then-incumbent Herb Bateman by 7.5% of the votes cast.[2]

1992 election

Following the 1990 census that shifted the boundaries of Virginia's congressional districts, Scott ran in the very liberal newly drawn third district.[Citation Needed] He easily won the general election in a landslide,[3] and has been re-elected in large margins since.

Tenure

Amidst the MeToo movement, Scott has been accused in December 2017 of sexual misconduct by a staffer,[4] though he denied the allegation.[5]

It was reported in February 2019 that Rep. Scott had knew of sexual assault allegations made against Justin Fairfax for over a year.[6]

Despite previously refusing to back the impeachment coup against Donald Trump,[7] Scott ultimately supported[8] and voted in favor of the sham articles.[9]

Political views

A leftist, Scott is pro-abortion, anti-Second Amendment, and a proponent of the homosexual agenda.[10]
