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


His response to the 2nd woman? I'm not going anywhere....

"It is obvious that a vicious and coordinated smear campaign is being orchestrated against me. I will not resign,” the Virginia Democrat responded in a defiant Friday statement denying the allegation.

A second woman has accused Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of rape.

Meredith Watson said in a letter sent by her lawyer on Friday that Fairfax raped her in 2000, while the two were friends at Duke University. The letter demanded Fairfax, a Democrat, resign.

"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," the letter from Nancy Erika Smith, a lawyer at Smith Mullin, P.C., said.
