Accuser willing to testify to Virginia lawmakers

The statement from Watson's attorney said Fairfax used knowledge of her prior rape to plan his own attack on her in 2000.

Watson is the second woman to allege that Fairfax sexually assaulted her. Fairfax has been urged by leaders to step down.

"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", the first statement said.

"It is obvious that a vicious and co-ordinated smear campaign is being orchestrated against me", he said in a statement. It is demonstrably false. I cannot believe, given my obvious distress, that Mr. Fairfax thought this forced sexual act was consensual.

"What I have just expressed is the truth".

By Saturday, Fairfax had called for an investigation while maintaining that both instances were consensual. Leading Democratic lawmakers and officials, as well as Virginia's black caucus, have called for Northam's ouster in the wake of the scandal.

Tim Kaine and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, have called for Fairfax to step down after a second woman came forward on Friday to accuse Fairfax of sexual assault.

Attorneys for Vanessa Watson, a California college professor who said Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him at a Boston hotel in 2004, also released a statement saying their client would be willing to testify.

Those denials are not enough for him to keep his job, according to his fellow Democrats in the state Legislature. Fairfax denied the allegation. "He needs to address this as a private citizen".

As for taking Virginia to the "next level", that's basically a meaningless/trite cliche, but I will say one thing positive: IF Ralph Northam is serious about racial reconcilation, equity and justice, and IF he devotes himself wholeheartedly to these things during whatever time he remains governor, PERHAPS some good can come out of this nightmare.

While the blackface scandal has certainly taken a toll on Governor Ralph Northam's approval ratings, another recent poll shows that an overwhelming majority of black Virginians do not want Northam to resign.

Gov Justin Fairfax looks over a briefing book prior to the start of the senate session at the Capitol in Richmond, Va., Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019. "I call for his immediate resignation".

Although the Democratic Party has taken nearly a zero-tolerance approach to misconduct among its members in this #MeToo era, a housecleaning in Virginia could be costly to them: If all three Democrats resigned, Republican House Speaker Kirk Cox would become governor.

"I'm not as devastated by blackface and neither will I hold a person accountable for what they did 35 years ago, when this election for him as governor was not based upon who he was 35 years ago", said the grey-suited 52-year-old. On Friday, she took that statement a step further. "Nevertheless, Dr. Tyson will cooperate in any investigation that occurs".

But Meredith Watson has. Herring, next in line for the governorship after Fairfax, admitted to having once donned blackface in his youth after Northam's yearbook page was revealed.

Wexton also signed a joint statement with four other congressional representatives.

Comstock suggested probing who knew about the accusations against the lieutenant governor and when they knew about them.
