Justin Fairfax Threatened With Impeachment if He doesn't Resign
According to Business Insider, demands for Virginia Lt.
Governor Justin Fairfax to resign are becoming greater as a second woman has accused him of sexual assault.
Fairfax has refused to step down from his position, but now there is talk of him being forced out.
Virginia Democratic delegate Patrick Hope has stated "On Monday, I will be introducing articles of impeachment if the lieutenant governor does not resign before then." Vanessa Tyson was the first woman to speak out with a misconduct allegation against Fairfax.
She has released a statement this week, accusing Fairfax of forcing her to have sex with him in Boston during the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
Fairfax's spokeswoman said, "At no time has the Lt.
Governor assaulted anyone at any time or at any place.
As a father, husband, and public servant, he knows that sexual assault is a very serious matter and survivors of assault deserve to be heard."
