Calls Mount for Virginia Lieutenant Governor's Resignation

Warner speaks with news media at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington U.S

On Friday, Duke alumna Meredith Watson became the second woman to accuse Justin Fairfax, lieutenant governor of Virginia and Trinity '00, of sexually assaulting her.

"I believe and trust that due process will provide the fairness, justice and honesty that is necessary", Fairfax said in a statement on Saturday. Watson told multiple friends and classmates about the assault after it happened - both verbally and in Facebook messages and emails, she has revealed through her attorney.

The Smith Mullin statement said the alleged attack on Watson "was premeditated and aggressive", while also saying Fairfax and Watson "were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship".

"I overreacted", Northam said, referring to a press statement wrote on February 1 taking blame for the picture. Bass said that both Mr. Northam and Mr. Fairfax should step down.

Gov. Justin Fairfax is reaffirming his decision to not resign, releasing a statement after two women came forward with accusations of sexual assault. Virginia delegate Patrick Hope, a Democrat, said Friday night he will be bringing articles of impeachment against Fairfax.

"She left a campus party when he arrived, and he followed her out", Smith wrote in her statement. That openness dissipated as the week dragged on, as he rushed through the hallways of the Capitol and avoided questions on the graphic allegations against him.

As the crisis widened in the middle of the week, Democratic leaders and black members of the Virginia legislature appeared willing to give both Fairfax and Herring the benefit of the doubt for the time being - in Herring's case, because he apologized personally for wearing blackface.

Calls for Fairfax to step aside have come from state House and Senate Democrats, the Legislative Black Caucus, former Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe, Virginia's two US senators - Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, also both Democrats - and several potential Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Tyson and Fairfax met in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. Consequently, I call on all appropriate and impartial investigatory authorities, including the FBI, to investigate fully and thoroughly the allegations against me by Ms. Watson and Dr. Tyson.

Many Democrats who had carefully withheld judgment after the first accusation against Fairfax, saying the matter needed to be investigated, immediately condemned him.

The Democrat defended his vow to stay in office despite widespread calls for his resignation.

The dean of Virginia's Democratic congressional delegation requested immediate investigations of the women's allegations against Fairfax.

She came forward days after the disclosure by a conservative website of a racist photo on Northam's 1984 yearbook page of two individuals - one in blackface and the other dressed in white robes of the Ku Klux Klan.

The Democrats' statement says they take the issues and allegations facing Virginia's top three elected officials seriously and they'll be taking the pulse of their constituents over the weekend.

He first said he was in the picture, then denied it while at the same time acknowledging that he did wear blackface once at a dance contest. Speaking as a pediatric neurologist, he said he could feel the anguish of Virginians. The state's attorney general, who is after Fairfax in the line of succession for the governorship, has also admitted to wearing blackface when he was 19.

"Lieutenant-Governor Fairfax has suggested and called for an investigation, I strongly support that".
