Top Democrats, including a number of presidential hopefuls and most of Virginia's congressional delegation, swiftly and decisively turned against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who stands to become the state's second black governor if Northam quits.

Fairfax says his sexual encounter with Tyson was consensual. She remembers Watson from parties but didn't think Watson and Fairfax ran in the same social circles and was surprised that the statement from Watson's attorneys had described them as friends.

"Mr. Fairfax's attack was premeditated and aggressive", her lawyers said. Justin Fairfax of rape said Saturday that they are ready to testify at an impeachment hearing.

The statement said that the alleged previous rape had occurred during her sophomore year by an unnamed Duke men's basketball player, and that Watson had told Fairfax about it.

Northam said he has begun reading up on racial issues, starting with Ta-Nehisi Coates' powerful Atlantic magazine piece "The Case for Reparations" and Roots by Alex Haley.

Fairfax faces calls from many fellow Democrats to resign after Watson's accusation followed one by Scripps College professor Vanessa Tyson, who accused Fairfax of assaulting her at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, as the Post and others reported. A public relations firm representing Watson provided The Associated Press with a 2016 email exchange with a female friend and 2017 text exchanges in which Watson said Fairfax had raped her. Virginia Delegate Patrick Hope, a Democrat, has threatened to file articles of impeachment against Fairfax if he doesn't resign by Monday.

"She was upset, said Adams".

Northam -now a year into his four-year term - has told his top staff he's staying in office and said he wants to focus the rest of his term as governor on taking concrete steps toward increasing racial equality.

"I'm not sure that it's true or not, but there's an allegation".

Both men, who are white, have admitted to wearing a blackface while they were in college.

"It's a nightmare right now", said Representative A. Donald McEachin, a Virginia Democrat who can trace his history here back to Revolutionary War-era slaves. Consequently, I call on all appropriate and impartial investigatory authorities, including the FBI, to investigate fully and thoroughly the allegations against me by Ms. Watson and Dr. Tyson.

As the reports of Fairfax's second accuser filtered through Congress, multiple Democratic lawmakers called for his resignation. Sen. Petersen's Democratic-leaning district includes Fairfax and Vienna.

Democrats had until now stopped short of calling for Mr Fairfax to quit, but the latest allegation opened the floodgates on Friday. And a Democratic member of the state House, Del. The photo, which was first published in January by Big League Politics, appears in the governor's senior yearbook and shows two people: one dressed in blackface, and another clad in Ku Klux Klan robes.

The week's political chaos surrounding Virginia's top two elected officials stretched down to the second-in-line to succeed Northam, Attorney General Mark Herring, 57, who admitted that he, too, had once used blackface to imitate a black performer.

But a day later he denied being in the photograph at all, while admitting to wearing blackface to imitate Michael Jackson at a dance contest.

Now, both the lieutenant governor and governor of Virginia are facing mounting pressure from their party, Sabato says, as the future of the Democratic Party in 2020 hangs in the balance.
