Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, a 39-year-old African-American, has meanwhile been accused of forcing himself sexually on a woman 14 years ago. Watson told multiple friends and classmates about the assault after it happened - both verbally and in Facebook messages and emails, she has revealed through her attorney. Mr Fairfax's attack was premeditated and aggressive. At least one of those friends has publicly corroborated her account, while others have reportedly provided statements. According to the statement, the details of the alleged attack are similar to the ones contained in Tyson's allegations.

Through her lawyers, she said that she was "reluctantly coming forward out of a strong sense of civic duty". "She has no interest in becoming a media personality or reliving the trauma that has greatly affected her life".

The statement says Watson "hopes he will resign from public office". "Such an investigation will confirm my account because I am telling the truth", Fairfax said on Friday. I'd never convict someone on a bare allegation, with no hard evidence to support it and no corroboration at the time of the assault. It is demonstrably false. "I have never forced myself on anyone ever", his statement reads. He has called for a "full investigation", saying, "I will clear my good name and I have nothing to hide".

The statement responds to Fairfax "smearing" Watson "with the typical "she's nuts" defense".

"The only thing I'm talking about today is the budget", he told the Pilot before entering a meeting with his caucus members, "I'm here to pass a budget today". She went to the Dean, who provided no help and discouraged her from pursuing the claim further.

In an email to the Sanford community Friday from Dean Judith Kelley and provided to The Chronicle by Schoenfeld, Kelley informed them of the change. While she is not calling for any criminal or civil action to be taken against Fairfax, she says he should step down.

Watson's accusation comes after another woman, Vanessa Tyson, came forward earlier this week with her own sexual assault allegations against Fairfax. He insists the encounter with the woman was consensual. The state's attorney general, who is after Fairfax in the line of succession for the governorship, has also admitted to wearing blackface when he was 19.
