2nd Allegation Made Against VA Lt. Gov.
Quote:A second woman has come forward accusing Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault.

Lawyers for Meredith Watson released a statement Friday saying that she was raped by Fairfax while they were both Duke University students in 2000, and called for Fairfax’s resignation.

The statement is as follows:

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.

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.

Ms. Watson was upset to learn that Mr. Fairfax raped at least one other woman after he attacked her. The details of Ms. Watson’s attack are similar to those described by Dr. Vanessa Tyson.

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.

On behalf of our client, we have notified Justin Fairfax through his attorneys that Ms. Watson hopes he will resign from public office.

Fairfax released his own statement following the statement from Watson’s lawyers:

I deny this latest unsubstantiated allegation. It is demonstrably false. I have never forced myself on anyone ever.

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

I will clear my good name and I have nothing to hide. I have passed two full field background checks by the FBI and run for office in two highly-contested elections with nothing like this being raised before.

It is obvious that a vicious and coordinated smear campaign is being orchestrated against me.

I will not resign.

This comes days after Dr. Vanessa Tyson accused Fairfax of sexual assault at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, where they both worked. According to a statement by Tyson, she says what began as “consensual kissing” turned into a sexual assault.

Fairfax said he remembered a “consensual encounter” with Tyson, but said reading her account was “painful” and that he had “never done anything like what she suggests.”

Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called for Fairfax to resign in a tweet, saying, “It is clear to me that he can no longer effectively serve the people of Virginia as Lieutenant Governor.”

This sounds a ton to me like Brett Kavanaugh's deal.

Maybe if Fairfax can produce journals with SQUI's name in it, he has a chance to hang on to his job.

No. Other than Ford, the claims against Kavanaugh were total jokes. Nobody who thinks for themselves would pay any attention to them.

We don't know about this 2nd one yet. But if she can corroborate telling others contemporaneously he is toast. What they claim to have would give a DA a pretty strong case. It sounds pretty similar to the Jameis Winston case where he was protected by Tallahassee police.

The reason people didn't come out before is probably because they were Democrats. They waited until after the election.

I know where we both stand politically, but really there has to be statute of limitations on accusations as well as on crimes and the two should be the same.

Then if any news service picks up on an accusation that has past its statute of limitations that service should be liable.

Thankfully there is no limit on murder of which I am aware. I think the time frame on a rape needs to be rather lengthy, but if it isn't reported within a decade can there really be any forensic evidence?

At some point it is reasonable to question the motivations of extremely late accusations. If the guy is a threat to women then women need to report it immediately. After 19 years it seems more like an "I'll take you down" act of vengeance than an effort to seek justice or prevent further victims.

I think it's regrettable that this has happened with either Kavanaugh or Fairfax. At this point I do not find the allegations against Kavanaugh believable, and I have no idea whether those against Fairfax are true or not. So I'm going to wait for the evidence before jumping to any conclusions.

The difference between Kavanaugh and Farifax, besides Kavanaugh being innocent and Fairfax guilty as hell, is that Farifax said to f*ck that b*tch. Imagine what would have happened if Kavanaugh said that. I mean, most of the left got butthurt that Kavanaugh forcebully denied the claims.

RE: 2nd Allegation Made Against VA Lt. Gov.
Judge Kavanaugh deserved due process when allegations were made against him, and so does Lt Gov Fairfax. While the accusers in both cases are vastly different, PRINCIPLE, to me, demands more to completely ruin a person's career. Let's see where the investigations of these allegations lead and make an informed decision when more information is available.
