Impeachment coming against Fairfax after second accuser’s wicked details send Dems into a tailspin

If you were to ask a professional psychic, he or should would likely predict that Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s previously nascent career in politics is now officially toast.

Why? Because only days after a highly respected Scripps College professor and Stanford University fellow released a statement detailing the way Fairfax had allegedly sexually assaulted her 15 years ago, another woman came forth to issue a similar accusation against the embattled Democrat.

But instead of acknowledging these accusations and noting that both accusers deserve to be heard, the lieutenant governor accused the women of running a “vicious and coordinated smear campaign.”

What ever happened to #BelieveAllWomen?

In response, the attorneys for Fairfax’s second accuser, Meredith Watson, issued a statement Friday that outlined how — after he allegedly raped their client while studying at Duke University in 2000 — he’d had the gall to boast to her how he’d done it because he’d known she’d stay quiet.

“Ms. Watson was raped by a basketball player during her sophomore year at Duke. She went to the Dean, who provided no help and discouraged her from pursuing the claim further. Ms. Watson also told friends, including Justin Fairfax,” her attorneys wrote.

“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.'”

What Fairfax had not counted on was his other victims speaking up and inspiring Watson to speak up as well. And thanks to her taking a stand against his alleged abuse, practically the entire Democrat Party is now demanding that step down from office immediately.



To say it’s over for Fairfax would be an understatement. Even his allies in the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus have called for his resignation.

“In light of the most recent sexual assault allegations against Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus believes it is best for Lt. Governor Fairfax to step down from his position,” they wrote in a statement published roughly an hour after Watson’s attorneys essentially accused Fairfax of premeditated rape.

And unlike with Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, whom many suspect will survive the blackface scandal that erupted last week, with Fairfax the chances of weathering the storm are zilch.

In fact, Virginia state representatives are already prepping articles of impeachment against him.

“On Monday, I will be introducing articles of impeachment for Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax if he has not resigned before then,” state Rep. Patrick Hope announced early Friday evening.

It’s clear that the question now isn’t whether or not Fairfax is toast — it’s whether he’d like butter or jam with his toast.
