The Bonfire of the Virginia Democratic Party, in GIFs

Virginia's embattled governor, Ralph Northam, capped a week of political chaos ignited by racial scandals by vowing to stay in office on Friday, while the fellow Democrat in line to succeed him faced a second accusation of sexual assault.

In a statement on Friday, February 8, the woman said the alleged attack happened when she and Fairfax were both students at Duke University back in 2000.

She says she was friends with Mr Fairfax while they studied at Duke University, but that they never had a romantic relationship. Following inquiries from AP and other media, Watson's lawyer confirmed that while in college she accused another man, a basketball player at Duke, of raping her when she was a sophomore.

Tyson, a California college professor and the first woman to accuse Fairfax, claimed that he forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention.

Fairfax has forcefully denied both allegations and refused to resign, saying he has "never assaulted anyone". "This is part of the sad and dark politics that the Lt. Governor has dedicated himself to helping Virginia and the nation rise above".

"I will not resign", he said.

The upheaval began with the revelation last Friday that Northam's medical school yearbook page contained a racist photo. After the second allegation was made Friday, Fairfax - who stands to become the state's second black governor if Gov. Ralph Northam resigns over a racist photo - was barraged with demands to step down from top Democrats, including a number of presidential hopefuls and most of Virginia's congressional delegation.




The Associated Press typically does not identify those who say they were sexually assaulted, but both Tyson and Watson issued public statements using their names. "I want to stand here in that truth and restate that my truth, as well as the truth of Dr. Tyson and Ms. Watson, should be fully investigated and thoroughly assessed", Fairfax's statement said, also calling on the FBI to "investigate fully and thoroughly the allegations against me".

"Well then again, I could read this, not like the guy, and say, I got something that could show a pattern", Kilmeade countered.

Two of Prof Tyson's colleagues and several unnamed friends told the New York Times that she had relayed the incident to them in the last two years. I want to stand here in that truth and restate that my truth, as well as the truth of Dr. Tyson and Ms. Watson, should be fully investigated and thoroughly assessed.

The allegation comes after another woman accused Fairfax of misconduct over a sexual encounter they had in a hotel room 15 years ago, one that he insists was "100 percent consensual". Like he is smearing Dr. Vanessa Tyson, Mr. Fairfax is now smearing Ms. Watson.

Boyd, whose group says it represents 109,000 farmers across the country, said on Twitter afterward that he pledged his support to the governor and "urged him NOT to step down".

For example, he said, Virginia has a serious issue with infant and maternal mortality - "we've talked about it, now it's time to take action". Herring has also admitted to wearing blackface in college.
