Second Woman Accuses Virginia Lt. Gov. Fairfax of Sexual Assault

Blackface

Norment is the first Virginia Republican to be touched by an ever widening scandal about past displays of racism that has engulfed the state's top Democrats.

Northam, who is a year into his four-year term, announced his intention to stay during an afternoon Cabinet meeting, according to a senior official who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Lane added the "ultimate irony" would be the possibility that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who landed himself in hot water for his racist medical school yearbook page, is the "lone survivor" from the ordeal.

The statement said that Watson is not seeking financial damages, but is simply requesting that Fairfax resign from office.

She said "Mr Fairfax's attack was premeditated and aggressive" and the details "are similar to those described by Dr Vanessa Tyson".

Meanwhile, a woman came forward with a statement accusing Fairfax of attacking her when they were students at Duke University in North Carolina in 2000.

The two undergrads were "friends" at Duke but did not date or see each other romantically, according to Watson's lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith. "She said he knew that she didn't like what was happening, but he kept pushing her down".

Tyson accused Fairfax of forcing her to "perform oral sex" during an encounter at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in July 2004.

"I deny this latest unsubstantiated allegation".

Watson wants Fairfax to resign from office, Smith said. Watson reportedly told Fairfax about the incident.

Police officials in Durham, North Carolina, where Duke is, said they had no records of an accusation against Fairfax in 2000.

Spurs received a further boost as Liverpool dropped more points in a 1-1 draw with West Ham on Monday and are now five points behind the leaders and two behind City.

Fairfax swiftly denied the allegation and called for an investigation into the accusation. Northam is facing mounting calls to resign. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax presides over the state Senate at the capitol on Thursday. Gillibrand called the details "sickening and horrendous".

The congressional delegation indicated it was withholding final judgment on Herring, widely seen as showing more honest contrition, while he continued efforts to mend fences with Virginia's political establishment.

He pushed back against any "parallel" some may draw between the allegations made against Fairfax versus those made against Kavanaugh.

The nearly exponential blackface scandal ensnaring the state's top Democratic leadership has now reached the upper echelons of the Old Dominion's Republican Party.

Yet, if Fairfax does not by Monday, Hope has pledged to file articles of impeachment.

If Fairfax were to leave, there's no consensus on who could replace him.

The scandals have rattled the Democratic Party in a state where it has been gaining ground in recent years and that will play a key role in picking the victor of the 2020 presidential elections. Steve Newman, the Senate's pro tem, serve as both a voting senator and temporary lieutenant governor.

The revelation comes after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring both admitted to wearing blackface while in college.

Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called for Fairfax to resign soon after Watson's allegations surfaced, something he had not done previously.

Given the fact that this is 1968 we're talking about, the revelation by Norment doesn't seem like quite as big a shock as those involving Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring.
