Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates announced Friday they will hold a public hearing on the sexual assault allegations against Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax.
On the House floor, Delegate Rob Bell, R-Albemarle, invited the two accusers to share their stories at that hearing Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson have accused Fairfax of sexual assault in the early 2000's. Fairfax denies those allegations. Both Tyson and Watson have requested a hearing and Watson's attorney, Nancy Erika Smith, confirmed Watson will testify.
