2nd Accuser Comes Forward Against Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax

Blackface

New allegations from a woman named Meredith Watson, who claims Fairfax raped her in 2000 while the two were students at Duke University, prompted Democratic Virginia House of Delegates Member Patrick Hope to announce he plans to introduce articles of impeachment for Fairfax unless the Democratic lieutenant governor resigns by Monday.

Mr Fairfax has insisted his encounter with Prof Tyson was "100% consensual". He called the latest allegation "demonstrably false", and vowed he would not step down. McAuliffe wrote, "The allegations against Justin Fairfax are serious and credible".

Fairfax denied the accusation Friday afternoon, according to CNN reporter Ryan Nobles, who quoted Fairfax calling for a full investigation into the claim and saying flatly, "I will not resign".

Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax presides over a session of the state senate inside the capital building in dowtown Richmond, on February 4, 2019.

Democrats are facing problems with "blackface" scandals surrounding Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and the second in line to ascend the gubernatorial position, Attorney General Mark Herring.

"The multiple detailed allegations against the Lt. Gov. of Virginia are deeply troubling", Sen.

Update: I wouldn't risk ruining his life by presuming the worst about him based on one allegation.

"As one of seven working on a 359-page yearbook, I can not endorse or associate myself with every photo, entry, or word on each page", Norment said. He went on to say that "a vicious and coordinated smear campaign is being orchestrated against me". The black caucus also called for an investigation of the Fairfax case, and said the attorney general must take more actions to "reassure" the state he is fit to lead. It is unacceptable that either of these weighty responsibilities be entrusted to someone who has engaged in the behavior described by Dr. Tyson and Meredith Watson, particularly in light of Gov. Northam's situation, which we continue to believe requires his resignation.

Cohen is still expected to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee for a closed-door interview next Wednesday. He was sentenced to three years in federal prison in December and is scheduled to report on March 6.

All House Democrats from Virginia have also called for Fairfax to step down, with the exception of Rep. Bobby Scott.

It continued, "I will clear my good name and I have nothing to hide". The people said she provided varying levels of detail to them, but three of them said she identified the assailant as Mr. Fairfax, a lieutenant governor, or a politician on the rise.

Calls for Northam's resignation quickly escalated, following revelations last weekend about Northam's 1984 blackface appearance and a racist photo on his yearbook page of two individuals - one in blackface and the other dressed in white robes of the Ku Klux Klan.

A top Virginia Republican served as an editor for a college yearbook that includes racial slurs and at least one image of a person in blackface.

Herring, the third-ranking elected official in Virginia, apologised for wearing blackface as a 19-year-old at a college party and said "the shame of that moment has haunted me for decades".

The panel discussed how Northam has thus far shown no signs he will leave Richmond, despite overwhelming criticism from the state's top Democrats - Sens.

Herring said he had donned blackface to imitate groundbreaking 1980s rapper Kurtis Blow, who weighed in on the matter on Friday.

But Tyson said in her statement that she "cannot believe" Fairfax would think the sexual act was consensual.
