(Richmond)-Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax says sex assault allegations against him are a smear. Big League Politics reports that a woman contacted their editor through a private Facebook post and said Fairfax assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. A woman approached the Washington post in 2017 about this, but The Washington Post decided not to publish it. They only said they couldn’t corroborate either side of the story. Fairfax said he had consensual relations with the woman in question, but says the sex assault allegation is false and unsubstantiated.
