UPDATE: Justin Fairfax refuses to quit, even after former Virginia Democrat governor Terry McAuliffe called for his immediate resignation.
Fairfax cites his passing of FBI background checks, which is one of the same explanations that Brett Kavanaugh’s supporters used to defend the baselessly accused Republican-nominated Supreme Court justice. Here is Fairfax’s statement following the second accuser coming forward:

Justin Fairfax is now accused of rape by a classmate during his time at Duke University, according to her lawyers. This is the second allegation of sexual assault levied against the Virginia Democrat lieutenant governor, following Dr. Vanessa Tyson’s claim that Fairfax sexually assaulted her by forcing her to perform fellatio in a hotel room at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004. Tyson has made it clear that she is willing to cooperate in an investigation of Fairfax, according to a source cited by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Evergreen Partners confirmed to Big League Politics that the firm is representing Meredith Watson.
