Our Revolution Calls for Fairfax to Resign

WASHINGTON--Our Revolution on Saturday called on Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax to resign after a second woman came forward with allegations of sexual assault. Our Revolution also reiterated its call for Gov. Ralph Northam to resign for appearing in a racist yearbook photo. 

"The allegations of sexual assault against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax are horrific and disturbing," said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. "All accusations of sexual assault must be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly, regardless of political party or ideology. No instance of abuse should be overlooked or minimized. Fairfax should resign immediately to address these allegations. Furthermore, both Governor Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring should also resign. Virginia needs new leadership from top to bottom."
