Facebook Messages Show 2nd Fairfax Accuser Detailed Rape Allegations in 2017
Newly revealed Facebook messages show that the second woman accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault was making those allegations in private during the state’s 2017 election, as she weighed whether to come forward.
Facebook messages dating as far back as March 2017, and obtained by Fox News on Tuesday, show Meredith Watson commenting on Fairfax’s candidacy and telling contacts about the alleged rape.
Fairfax, a Democrat, has adamantly denied Watson’s claims, but the firm representing Watson had said over the weekend she has “documentary evidence” showing she discussed the alleged attack with others.
