Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax Releases Statement Denying Latest Rape Charges – “I WILL NOT RESIGN”
A second woman came forward and accused Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault on Friday.
The accuser, a woman named Meredith Watson, requested the resignation of Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax through her attorney Nancy Erika Smith on Friday, alleging Fairfax raped her in college in the year 2000.
According to the statement released by Nancy Erika Smith, Meredith Watson has contemporaneous witnesses who have provided statements corroborating Ms. Watson’s claims Fairfax raped her.
Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax immediately released a statement denying the second sexual assault allegation against him Friday afternoon.
“I deny this latest unsubstantiated allegation. It is demonstrably false. I have never forced myself on anyone,” Fairfax said.
Fairfax then demanded a “full investigation” into the “unsubstantiated and false” sexual assault allegations. “I am telling the truth,” Fairfax added.
Mr. Fairfax concluded his statement by calling the sexual assault allegations against him “a vicious and coordinated smear campaign” that is being orchestrated against him.
“I will not resign,” he stated.

Dr. Vanessa Tyson, the first woman to accuse Justin Fairfax of sexual assault has a very compelling, believable story, however she does not offer any contemporaneous witnesses to corroborate her claims Mr. Fairfax sexually assaulted her at a DNC convention in Boston in 2004.
Justin Fairfax admitted to having an encounter with Dr. Vanessa Tyson at a hotel room during a DNC convention in Boston back in 2004, however, he insists it was consensual.
The second woman to accuse Fairfax of sexual assault also has a strong case because she is offering up contemporaneous witnesses, according to her lawyer.
Both Democrats and Republicans are calling for Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax to resign.
On Friday, after the second accuser came forward, Senator Mazie Hirono, a far left Dem lunatic from Hawaii even called for Fairfax to step down.
“With this second serious and credible allegation of sexual assault, Justin Fairfax should resign. This is not a partisan issue,” Hirono said in a tweet Friday afternoon.
