2nd woman accuses Virginia official of sexual assault

Northam accompanied by his wife Pamela Northam announces he will not resign during a news conference in Richmond Virginia

"Almost half of Virginians. say Northam should step down, while the same percentage said he should remain in office", the Hill reports.

Near the beginning of the CBS interview excerpt in an exchange with King, Northam notes that this year is the 400th anniversary of the first "indentured servants from Africa" arriving in Virginia.

But it was also one of the most significant regions for the Atlantic slave trade, the main battleground of the mid-19th century Civil War that was fought over slavery, and later one of the states most resistant to the civil rights movement that brought an end to segregation. "And so this has been a real, I think, an awakening for Virginia".

"Yes, yes", Northam replied, prompting exasperation from some commentators on social media. Fairfax did not deny he had an encounter with Tyson, but said it was consensual and the accusation was an attempt to smear him when he was poised to become governor of Virginia. "SIGH", tweeted Democratic operative Symone Sanders.

The state is in chaos with controversies engulfing the state's top three elected officials.

Democrats across the country are teaming up to call for the "immediate" resignation of Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax after a second woman accused him of sexual assault on Friday.

Paralegal Linda Ginsberg, who came to the area from Boston 12 years ago, said that what Northam had done years ago was "incredibly insensitive and stupid" - but shouldn't affect his ability to perform in his current role. The Virginia Democratic Party has called on Fairfax to resign, and one Democratic Virginia legislator says he will introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax if a resolution on the issue is not reached this week.

On Saturday, Virginia's House of Delegates Speaker Kirk Cox joined the chorus calling for Fairfax's resignation.

"We hope, for example, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will show a willingness to investigate", the spokeswoman, Lauren Burke, said in a statement.

Apple releases bug fix for embarrassing security flaw that allowed FaceTime eavesdropping
Apple turned off the group chat feature last week, several days after a 14-year-old boy in Tucson, Arizona, discovered the flaw. This runs counter to how most tech companies handle bug reports, especially those involving vulnerabilities in their products.

He told Gayle King on Face the Nation that: "Yes, I have thought about resigning".

"If I had it to do over I would step back and take a deep breath", he said.

The Democrats say the opposite is true. I ask that all three of us be respected during this process. We will provide at least two witnesses whom Ms. Watson told of the assault the day after Fairfax raped her.

President Donald Trump weighed in Sunday morning, tweeting "African Americans are very angry at the double standard on full display in Virginia!"

Northam reportedly spoke to The Washington Post for 30 minutes from the parlor of the Virginia governor's mansion, and resolved to allow the issue to pass. Fairfax has denied the allegations. Blah blah blah. I swear, I listen to this guy and it feels like my IQ drops several points as brain cells are killed left and right. "We're in a position to really stop talking so much and now to take action with policy to address a lot of these inequities".

"Justin Fairfax doesn't seem to have many, if any, Democrats who are out there defending him which leads me to ask 'what did you know?'" she said.

Shortly after Caleb Hull "exposed" Gov. Northam saying it would be legal to kill a baby born alive if that is what the mother wanted, a 1984 medical yearbook photo surfaced from Northam's own yearbook page showing two individuals in blackface and a KKK costume.

Should Mr. Northam resign from office, his lieutenant is also tangled in an imbroglio involving allegations he sexually assaulted a woman while working on John Kerry's presidential campaign.
