Fairfax Given Until Monday To Resign Or Face Impeachment After Second Sex-Assault Claim

Update3: Patrick Hope, a Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates, tweeted on Friday that he will be introducing articles of impeachment if Fairfax hasn't resigned by Monday.

Update2: Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has called for Fairfax to resign following the second allegation against the embattled Virginia Lt. Governor.

Update: A second woman has stepped forward to accuse Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Faifax of sexual assault.

Meredith Watson, a friend of Fairfax's at Duke University when they were both undergraduates, alleges that Fairfax raped her in a "premeditated and aggressive" assault in 2000.

Speaking through an attorney, Nancy Erika Smith, Wilson said that she shared her claim immediately after it happened with several classmates who have provided statements, while her lawyer added that Wilson shared her account with friends in several Facebook messages and emails.

Smith said the details of Watson’s attack are similar to those described by Tyson.

Kaneedreck Adams, 40, an attorney who attended Duke with Watson and said in the spring of 2000, when they lived across from each other in on-campus apartments, Watson came to her crying.

“She was upset,” Adams said. “She told me she had been raped and she named Justin.” -WaPo

Northwest Woodsman:Nothing vile from that particular demographic surprises me. What surprises me is that so many reasonable, decent people just put up with it because they are scared of them racist label. Stand up folks and quit burying your heads in the sand. But be ready to join me in a Marxist re-education camp if we are stupid enough to let them have complete control.

I am a Trump supporter all the way, but what if this guy didn’t do it. We didn’t like it when they were all over Judge Kavanaugh and it turns out he was not guilty. Just saying wait it out and prove him guilty before making him resign.
