The woman who accused Virginia’s Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) of raping her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention has once again called for his resignation Sunday.
“In my ideal world, I’d want him to resign.” Vanessa Tyson said on “CBS This Morning.” “I would want Meredith, myself, and Mr. Fairfax to be able to speak. To be heard. And particularly for survivors, I think this is incredibly important…we need to be treated as the human beings that we are.”
Her full interview with host Gayle King will air on Monday.
Tyson, a political science professor at Scripps College in Claremont, California, said that her primary reason for coming forward was so that her students who are interested in a career in politics would never have to go through what she did.
“I don’t want this to ever, ever, ever happen to them,” she said.
But she also wants the people of the state of Virginia to understand who Fairfax is, telling CBS that “the Virginia people need to know who they elected.”
Fairfax was accused by a second woman, Meredith Watson, of rape when they were students at Duke University.
The result of the allegations against have been a nasty fallout within Virginia’s Democratic Party and their friends in the mainstream press. The party was poised to replace Gov. Ralph Northam (D) with Fairfax after Big League Politics outed him as a racist. After the rape allegations against Fairfax, the party got cold feet.
Additionally, The Washington Post faced a great deal of scrutiny, having learned of the allegations against Fairfax from Tyson herself. The Jeff Bezos-owned blog said that it did not publish the accusations because they did not meet their editorial standards for corroborating witnesses, despite the fact that Tyson confidante Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) confirmed to The New York Times that WaPo had contacted him about the allegations. Tyson had also confided in five other women.

Netflix ‘Cheer’ Star, Joe Biden Surrogate Charged With Producing Child Pornography After Federal Raid
There’s something wrong at Netflix.
A Netflix star who has appeared in digital campaign events as a Joe Biden surrogate has been charged with producing child pornography, just days after federal law enforcement raided his Illinois residence on suspicion that Jerry Harris was engaging in sexually explicit messaging with minors.
Harris is known for appearing on Netflix’s Cheer documentary, which details the competitive cheerleading world. Harris had appeared with Joe Biden in a digital campaign interview with the auspices of turning out the youth vote in June.
Harris’ arrest comes just days after Netflix itself became embroiled in controversy over the publication of the film Cuties, which depicts prepubescent girls in a highly sexualized manner. Many opponents of child exploitation have cancelled their subscriptions to Netflix on account of the film.
A federal criminal complaint filed in the US District Court of Chicago alleges that the 21-year old Harris “enticed an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself.” The boy is described as being only 13 years old.
Harris is also being accused of child sexual abuse in civil lawsuits filed by two alleged victims earlier this week. The plaintiffs allege that Harris requested sexual photographs from them when they were respectively 13 and 14 years old.
Netflix quite clearly has some serious institutional and cultural issues. Joe Biden needs to immediately disavow his supporter- who he appeared with in a lengthy campaign interview- for what appears to be a pattern of child sexual abuse.
