Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax denies sexual assault allegation


At the Virginia state Capitol on Monday, Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of Virginia strongly denied an uncorroborated sexual assault allegation first published by a conservative website, calling the accusation a “smear” and “character assassination.” His remarks Monday afternoon come as many Democrats are calling for Gov. Ralph Northam to resign over the revelation of racist yearbook photos from his time in medical school, which would elevate Fairfax to the governorship.
