Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (Who would replace Northam) denies 2004 sexual assault allegation
Things just keep getting uglier in The Old Dominion.
One week ago Governor Northam was cruising along. Then he came out and defended abortion unitl birth. Then pictures emerged of him in medical school in black face or under a Klan hood (take your pick). Then came his announcement that he was going to resign. Then came the announcement that he wasn't in fact going to resign. Then the Virginia Democratic Party rallied around Mr. Fairfax and insisted that Northam resign. Now Fairfax is seeing sexual assault allegations.
In a statement issued minutes before 3 a.m. Monday, Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax denied an unverified allegation of sexual assault – a claim posted on the same website that first published an image of Gov. Ralph Northam’s now infamous medical school yearbook.
The allegation involves an unsubstantiated claim of sexual assault against Fairfax during the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
