This morning, we have new developments regarding sexual assault allegations against Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax. First, according to WTKR, “An eyewitness can come forward and say Lt. Gov.

Fairfax Continues to Dodge Public Hearings
Five months after being accused of rape, Justin Fairfax changes his story yet again. First it didn’t happen then it was consensual, and now for the first time he implicates his buddy as a participant. If Justin Fairfax wants the truth to come out, this secret witness should testify under oath, in public, along with Mr. Fairfax, both his victims and their witnesses. Fairfax continues to fight a public hearing tooth and nail. That says it all.
– Nancy Erika Smith, Attorney for Meredith Watson
The letter from Lt. Gov. Fairfax’s attorney is as follows. I’ll update this story if/when I see new information.
