Fairfax Speaks Out on Sexual Assault Charges

Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax wants "due process" for himself and his accusers, he told the Washington Post on Monday. Two women claim he sexually assaulted them in the early 2000s, one in 2000 at Duke University, and another during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He denies the nature of both incidents, yet said the women deserve to be heard.

“Even in the most difficult times, including ones like these, that’s when it’s most important to adhere to our highest values as Americans,” he said. “And due process is at the heart of our constitutional democracy in order to get to the truth and be true to what we are as Americans....Everyone deserves to be heard...Even when faced with those allegations, I am still standing up for everyone’s right to be heard. But I’m also standing up for due process.” (Washington Post)

Fairfax also noted he wants the FBI to investigate.

Like Gov. Ralph Northam, who is facing a separate scandal about a racist photo that appeared on his medical school yearbook page, Fairfax said he will not be resigning. That's despite demands from former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Sen. Mark Warner, and other Democratic lawmakers to step down.

Another Democratic delegate was seriously considering impeachment. But Fairfax got lucky. Del. Patrick Hope told colleagues Sunday he planned to introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax on Monday, but hours later he backtracked and noted he needed to have "additional conversations" before taking that drastic step.

Fairfax plans to proceed as normal in the state Senate Monday.

In other news, the law firm he works for, Morrison Foerster, has placed him on leave as they investigate the allegations.
