Prosecutor who tried jailing distraught dad whose daughter was raped by transvestite may have been voted out of office

Virginians appear to have successfully voted Loudoun County's George Soros-backed prosecutor out of office.

Unofficial results from the Virginia Department of Elections indicate that Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj lost the election to Republican challenger Bob Anderson by over 1,000 votes, with well over 95% of the votes counted. Biberaj, however, refuses to concede.

The Democratic commonwealth attorney claimed Wednesday that there are around 2,000 uncounted votes that will be tallied over the next couple of days. Accordingly, she will wait to concede or seek a recount. Anderson's lead is presently within the margin necessary for a recount, reported the Loudoun Times-Mirror.

"We tell people that their vote counts," said Biberaj. "So we have to make sure that we count their votes."

On Wednesday, Anderson wrote on X, "There is no current path to victory for Buta Biberaj and we look forward to waiting for the due process to run course. I am confident the results will remain the same, and look forward to serving as your next Commonwealth's Attorney."

This loss will prove a great upset for Biberaj when confirmed, given that she reportedly out-raised Anderson by almost a 10-to-1 margin, taking in nearly $680,000 compared to Anderson's $69,000.

Anderson served as commonwealth's attorney twenty years ago but figured the county could once again benefit from "stability and a strong commitment to community safety."

Biberaj told Patch at the outset of her re-election campaign that she was a "visionary" with a diverse office who, if reelected, would "work with the legislature to pass a ban on assault rifles, gun lock laws, and background checks." The 59-year-old Democrat also claimed that she focuses "prosecutions on violent offenses so that victims are not retraumatized by the process."

Despite her alleged aversion to compounding trauma, Blaze News previously reported that Biberaj's office recommended that a male transvestite who raped a ninth-grade girl at Stone Bridge High School in 2021 be released with an ankle monitor and enrolled in a different school. Upon his release, the rapist is said to have sexually assaulted another child in a classroom.

After an apparent cover-up by the school, the first victim's father, Scott Smith, went to a school board meeting on June 22, 2021, seeking answers. After daring to raise his voice, Smith was tackled by police, detained, then convicted of disorderly convict.

Biberaj reportedly intended to prosecute the case and ultimately have Scott jailed but was thrown off in September 2022 for a lack of impartiality by her Republican predecessor turned Circuit Court Judge James Plowman.

In another instance of trauma unnecessarily compounded, Biberaj's office agreed to the release of a man charged with brutally assaulting, strangling, and abducting his wife, Regina Redman Lollobrigido. After his release, he allegedly went on to savage and kill Regina Lollobrigido with a hammer.

In addition to working to get criminals off, Biberaj also has worked with them. In 2021, her office hired a registered sex offender, convicted of a child pornography charge, as a paralegal.
