URGENT - Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax faces second sexual assault allegation
(CNN) -- A second woman has come forward to say that she was raped by Democratic Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax when they attended Duke University in 2000. Meredith Watson alleged that Fairfax's assault on her was "premeditated and aggressive" and that the two were friends but not romantically involved, according to a statement from her legal counsel, the firm Smith Mullen. "Ms. Watson shared her account of the rape with friends in a series of emails and Facebook messages that are now in our possession. Additionally, we have statements from former classmates corroborating that Ms. Watson immediately told friends that Mr. Fairfax had raped her," the statement reads. "Ms. Watson was upset to learn that Mr. Fairfax raped at least one other woman after he attacked her. The details of Ms. Watson's attack are similar to those described by Dr. Vanessa Tyson. " Fairfax has previously denied Tyson's allegation. Watson is not seeking financial damages and has alerted Fairfax through her legal team that she would like him to resign, the statement adds. Fairfax swiftly denied the allegation and called for an investigation into the accusations.
