Fairfax Accuser Calls For Public Hearing

One of the women accusing Democrat Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting her is now condemning the news cycle’s abandonment of her claims, and demanding a public hearing where Fairfax will be required to testify.

Meredith Watson, who alleges that Fairfax raped her in 2000 while they were both college students, wrote an opinion article in The Washington Post decrying the media and politicians’ short memory, and saying she is willing to testify publicly.

In her article, she said that she has refused calls from politicians and media outlets to make the alleged rape a partisan issue or media talking point, and as such has been ignored.

Watson also stated that reporters and researchers have dug into every facet of her personal life, going as far as researching her elementary school records in an attempt to find evidence she may be untrustworthy or lying about the alleged rape.

Rather than a “secret” investigation into Fairfax, she demands a public hearing, and blames the Virginia legislature and the media for refusing to do its job and investigate the allegations publicly.

From The Washington Post:

I am frustrated by calls for an investigation rather than a public hearing into these matters. Such “investigations” are secret proceedings, out of the public eye, leaving victims vulnerable to selective leaks and smears. And we all know how such investigations end: with “inconclusive results.” My privacy has already been violated, yet I am still willing to testify publicly under oath. Tyson has made the same offer. Our plea to the Virginia General Assembly to require the same of Fairfax has been met with inaction.

Despite every attempt to shame me, I am not ashamed. It is Justin Fairfax who should be ashamed. It is the Virginia legislature that should be ashamed. And it is the media that should be ashamed.

Watson and her lawyer allege that Fairfax raped her while they were both students at Duke University, and that Fairfax’s rape came after she confided in him that she had been previously sexually assaulted. Watson believes he saw her as vulnerable, and believed she would be too intimidated to seek legal actions against him or go public with her story.

Big League Politics reported:

“Ms. Watson also told friends, including Justin Fairfax. Mr. Fairfax then used this prior assault against Ms. Watson, as he explained to her during the only encounter she had with him after the rape. She left a campus party when he arrived, and he followed her out. She turned and asked: “Why did you do it?” Mr. Fairfax answered: “I knew that because of what happened to you last year, you’d be too afraid to say anything.” Mr. Fairfax actually used the prior rape of his “friend” against her when he chose to rape her in a premeditated way. Like he is smearing Dr. Vanessa Tyson, Mr. Fairfax is now smearing Ms. Watson. That’s shameful. The smears on victims of sexual assault have to stop. Why would any woman come forward with information about a powerful man knowing that he and his supporters will stop at nothing to smear and discredit them? Women come forward to support one another and to stop the culture of rape that is even more pervasive than we acknowledge,” Smith stated.

So far, none of the Democrats implicated in major scandals have faced any meaningful consequences.

In addition to Fairfax, who has clung to his public office through this controversy, Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who endorsed infanticide as a form of abortion before having racist college yearbook photos exposed, is still in office. Also escaping punishment is Democrat Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, who Democrats say should get a pass for the racist blackface photos he admits exist because Republicans are bad.
