Meredith Watson claims Fairfax raped her in 2000, when they were both students at Duke University.
A second woman has come forward accusing Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault. In a letter from her lawyer, Meredith Watson claims she was raped by Fairfax in 2000, when they were both students at Duke University. The letter characterizes the alleged attack as premeditated and aggressive. The two were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship, the letter says.

He would ask Sally Hemmings what he should say
The same with me and there is a big difference with these women. They are Democrats.
Henceforth it will be more difficult for Democrats to play these tricks on Republicans.
The multiple detailed allegations against the Lt. Gov. of Virginia are deeply troubling. They are serious, credible, and corroborated by others. It is no longer appropriate for him to serve. He should resign.— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) February 8, 2019
I believe Dr. Vanessa Tyson.
I believe Meredith Watson.
And I believe Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax must resign.— Rep. Jennifer Wexton (@RepWexton) February 8, 2019
These credible and troubling allegations from Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson make it clear that Lt. Gov Fairfax should resign. My heart goes out to these brave women and their families.— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) February 8, 2019
You know what they say about sexual predators. It normally doesn’t stop after the first time. He needs to resign.
In fact, the Democrats can retain their power if Fairfax resigns first and Northam names the replacement (presumably a Democrat) and then resigns in disgrace himself.
A far-left Democrat delegate says he’s going to initiate impeachment on Monday.
Now we know why Terry McAwful was so hyped about gaining voting rights for felons since he knows so many of them.
I will wait to see how credible these women are. The Kavanaugh episode has made me very cautious about women coming forward with such accusations years after the fact.
Five thousand to 10,000 bills are introduced in Congress each session. Most are nonsense that just get ignored, “tabled”.
Notice too the use of “civic duty” as an explanation for coming forward. Seem familiar?
It should not escape anyone’s notice how carefully worded the lawyer’s letter is, which gives every appearance of being specifically for the purpose of avoiding libel and defamation suits.
Real victims don’t do these things.
Makes you wonder about the who & the motive for piling on Fairfax? Just $$$ or fame or what?
I love it.This gets better by the day.
clean and articulate? A storybook, man?
Something’s fishy. The letter from Ms Watson’s attorney doesn’t mention a police report. That it doesn’t, makes me suspect there isn’t one.
Also interesting is that this woman waited eighteen years to reveal this alleged incident in public. Why didn’t she go public when Fairfax was running for Lt Governor?
I’m not defending Fairfax, but the timing of this announcement is shady.
