Second woman accuses Virginia's Lt Governor of sexual assault Embattled Virginia leader wants to focus on racial equity

"It's obvious from what happened this week that we still have a lot of work to do", he said. But he said he's in a position to lead and that "Virginia needs someone that can heal". From there Northam claimed that because he has "strength", "courage" and "a moral compass", he was "not going anywhere".

Northam said the humbling week and the late-in-life conversations about race have made him determined to refocus his governorship, but it seemed plain that he is just beginning to think through what that might mean.

"I knew I was, Ms. King, but I didn't realize really the powerful implications of that", he said.

Several of the state's top Democrats, including U.S. Sen.

"I can not believe, given my obvious distress, that Mr. Fairfax thought this forced sexual act was consensual".

Virginia's embattled governor insisted he would not resign over a racist yearbook photo, but said the state's lieutenant governor would have to step aside if sexual assault allegations against him were found to be true.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat, held off from directly calling for Fairfax's resignation. Although the party has taken an nearly zero-tolerance approach to misconduct among its members in this #MeToo era, a housecleaning in Virginia could be costly: If all three Democrats resigned, Republican state House Speaker Kirk Cox would become governor. And two sexual assault allegations have surfaced against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax.

Delegate Patrick Hope said over the weekend that he would move forward with the impeachment process if Fairfax did not resign by Sunday night.

The lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, said her team had statements from ex-classmates who said Watson "immediately" told friends Fairfax raped her.

"Also known as slavery", Gayle King said, interrupting him.

"I overreacted", he said, by putting out a statement taking blame for the picture.

Watson's legal team released an email exchange between her and a former Duke classmate from October 2016, in which Watson responds to an invitation to a fundraiser for Fairfax by saying, "Justin raped me in college and I don't want to hear anything about him".

"What I have just expressed is the truth. There are still some very deep wounds in Virginia, and especially in the area of equity", he said.

Northam also made comments in regards to his apparent willingness to kill babies after birth.

Before leaving for the service in Chilhowie, a small town in the state's rural southwest corner, Northam doubled down on his determination to stay in office, pledging to promote racial reconciliation in the remaining three years of his term.

Gov. Northam was elected to office in 2017 after airbrushing his black running mate out of official campaign flyers, refusing to shake a black opponent's hand after a debate, and bolstered by support from campaign allies who ran an ad insinuating Republican voters wished to use pick-up trucks and run over non-white children.
