A second woman has come forward to accuse Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) of sexual assault, the latest in a deepening political crisis for him and for the state.

Meredith Watson says Fairfax raped her when they were both students at Duke University in 2000, according to a statement from her attorney.

“We serve as counsel for Meredith Watson, who was raped by Justin Fairfax in 2000, while they were both students at Duke University. Mr. Fairfax’s attack was premeditated and aggressive. The two were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship,” Nancy Erika Smith, Watson’s attorney, said in a statement. “Ms. Watson shared her account of the rape with friends in a series of emails and Facebook messages that are now in our possession. Additionally, we have statements from former classmates corroborating that Ms. Watson immediately told friends that Mr. Fairfax had raped her.”

This alpha male needs to run for President.
No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

Is he going to repeat, "F*** that b***h" about accuser #2 (and all subsequent victims), like he did of the first woman?
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax accused of second sexual assault
Fox News, Feb 8, 2019,  Matt Richardson

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was hit with a new allegation of sexual assault on Friday afternoon, just days after the embattled Democrat was accused of assaulting a separate woman in 2004.

Fairfax denied the newest claim, labeling it "demonstrably false" but the claim promptly ignited multiple calls for Fairfax to resign. Multiple 2020 presidential hopefuls, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Corey Booker, D-N.J. and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., demanded he step down. Past and present Virginia politicos also called for his resignation.

Meridith Watson was “raped” by Justin Fairfax in 2000 “while they were both students at Duke University,” Smith Mullin P.C., legal counsel representing Watson, alleged in a Friday news release.

“Mr. Fairfax’s attack was premeditated and aggressive,” the release went on to claim. “The two were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship.

“Ms. Watson shared her account of the rape with friends in a series of emails and Facebook messages that are now in our possession. Additionally, we have statements from former classmates corroborating that Ms. Watson immediately told friends that Mr. Fairfax had raped her.”

"I demand a full investigation into these unsubstantiated and false allegations," Fairfax insisted. "Such an investigation will confirm my account because I am telling the truth."

Fairfax said the allegation was part of a "vicious and coordinated smear campaign" orchestrated against him. He also pledged not to resign.

But the newest claim, combined with the allegation made earlier this week, only expedited calls for Fairfax to step down.

"The allegations against Justin Fairfax are serious and credible," former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe tweeted Friday. "It is clear to me that he can no longer effectively serve the people of Virginia as Lieutenant Governor. I call for his immediate resignation."

"I believe Dr. Vanessa Tyson. I believe Meredith Watson. And I believe Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax must resign," Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-Va., tweeted.

The mainstream media are very careful not to mention the Republican who would be next in line for the post should Northam, Fairfax and the Atty Gen have to step down for their various misdeeds and felonies.

At this time, Ms. Watson is reluctantly coming forward out of a strong sense of civic duty and her belief that those seeking or serving in public office should be of the highest character. She has no interest in becoming a media personality or reliving the trauma that has greatly affected her life. Similarly, she is not seeking any financial damages.

The Poundmetooer must be believed.  It is how they "woke"

I realize that, as my comment clearly indicated. IF Amos & Andy were forced to resign, AND the rapist resigned, the next in line is a Republican. Most of the media are studiously avoiding having to discuss him.

Kavanaughing him?  There are seemingly credible charges against this guy, unlike Kavanaugh.

If the President dies in a nuclear Armageddon, and The Vice President dies in a nuclear Armageddon, and the Speaker dies in a nuclear Armageddon I don't know who get top billing and it don't really matter much to me.  Northam ain't leaving so it matters even less than my Armageddon fantasy.

I agree.  These women seem sane and credible and totally unlike the Kavanaugh accusers.  There will probably be more, now that this many have come out.  He might as well pack.

He already said no.  No means no.  Voters will get a chance to voice their displeasure in...let me see...2 years and 9 months.
