WATCH: Justin Fairfax’s Accuser Describes Gruesome Details of Alleged Sexual Assault
In an interview with Gayle King of “CBS This Morning,” the woman who accused Virginia’s Democrat Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax of sexual assault described the attack in detail.
“It was like I couldn’t — I couldn’t feel my neck, I couldn’t hold my neck up,” said Vanessa Tyson. “He’s using his hand on the back of my neck and I still didn’t know what was going wrong, I thought there was something wrong with my neck and he’s pushing down and pushing down and I couldn’t hold my neck up and I didn’t know what was going on. I honestly didn’t know what was going on. And then, the next thing I know like my head is like literally in his crotch and I’m choking and gagging, and you know, I couldn’t say anything because I’m choking and gagging. And so — it continues and he’s holding my head so I can’t lift — like I’m trying to lift my head but I can’t.”
Big League Politics first reported on Tyson’s allegations of sexual assault on Feb.3, two days after we exposed Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, of wearing blackface or a KKK robe in his medical school yearbook. Both men have refused to resign from their posts, despite the outcry from the community.
Later in the interview, Tyson accused Fairfax of taking advantage of her past because she had been raped before.
A second woman, Meredith Horton, has also accused Fairfax of sexual assault.
