Virginia House of Delegate Democrats have called on LG Justin Fairfax to resign:
Ms. Watson and Dr. Tyson are courageous in coming forward to tell their stories. We respect all survivors and believe they should be fully heard. The allegations they have made against Lt. Governor Fairfax are criminal in nature and we are treating them with the seriousness they deserve.
Given the allegations, it is appropriate that the Suffolk County District Attorney in Massachusetts has offered to investigate. We would hope any other jurisdictions involved would follow Massachusetts’ lead. We believe that the law enforcement investigation should proceed unencumbered and outside of the political arena.
As such, the House Democratic Caucus has called on Lt. Governor Fairfax to resign. We are willing to work in a bipartisan manner with members of the General Assembly on a path forward.
