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.

Massachusetts Child Rapist Released From Jail for Coronavirus Risk
He’s free to go.
A Massachusetts man with child rape and indecent exposure convictions is being released from jail on account of the risk he faces from the raging coronavirus epidemic. 54-year old Glenn Christie was released from the Massachusetts Treatment Center on Friday.
Christie had been previously released from prison on parole, following his conviction for repeatedly raping a 12-year old boy in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. He was ordered back to prison after violating the terms of his parole agreement, but now he’s getting out because of the risk he faces as a result of the epidemic.
Christie had been a cellmate with an inmate who died of the coronavirus, and he apparently faces several serious preexisting conditions, according to his lawyers. The man uses a wheelchair, and has hypothyroidism, and several other possible medical conditions such as kidney disease.
In a tweet, Mr. Christie’s lawyer described the man as a “a perfect example of the sort of vulnerable person in need of release.”
Prisons and jail systems across the country- mostly on the east coast- have taken to releasing what they describe as mostly non-violent offenders to safeguard their staff and inmates. New York’s Rikers Island jail recounted releasing 300 misdemeanor offenders who were serving sentences of less than a year. Even though Christie was serving a year in the Massachusetts facility for violating the terms of his parole after initial release from prison, he wouldn’t meet the qualifications for coronavirus release used by other state and municipal corrections systems.
It’s probably safe to say that a man convicted of raping a child isn’t the kind of inmate that the public would want released in the midst of a medical pandemic.
