Virginia Democrats call on Justin Fairfax to resign
RICHMOND, VA. – Democratic Party of Virginia Chair Susan Swecker issued the following statement calling on the resignation of Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax.
"We believe that allegations of sexual assault must be taken with the utmost seriousness.
Given the credible nature of the sexual assault claims against Lieutenant Governor Fairfax, it has become clear he can no longer fulfill the duties and responsibilities of his post.
While the Lieutenant Governor deserves due process in this matter, it is in the best interest of the Commonwealth that he goes through this process as a private citizen.
The Lieutenant Governor no longer has our confidence or support. He must resign."
