Report: Va. Lt. Gov. Fairfax Offers Polygraphs Amid Allegations

Claiming he passed polygraphs "on the first try," Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is offering the evidence to law enforcement as his lawyers call for investigations into his two accusers who are claiming he sexually assaulted them, Politico reported.

Fairfax, a Democrat, considers sexual encounters with both Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson as consensual, despite their claims to the contrary.

"I look forward to clearing my good name," Fairfax told reporters, per the report. "More important, I look forward to being able to be a husband and a father without having my loved ones read and hear false accusations about me. And I look forward to going back to work for the people of Virigina, who I am honored to serve."

Fairfax released his polygraph results to the media and his attorneys announced they have asked Boston and Durham, North Carolina, prosecutors to fully investigate the accusations. 

"I knew that the allegations made against me were false from the moment I first heard them," Fairfax said, per Politico. "That is why I denied them."

". . . Because they are not true, however, they are incredibly hurtful to me, my family, and my reputation, which I've spent a lifetime building."

Tyson claimed Fairfax had forced her to perform oral sex in a Boston hotel room during the 2004 Democratic National Convention, holding her neck and pushing her head down.

An encounter with Watson at Duke University in 2000 was also consensual, Fairfax claimed.

"I did not rape or sexually assault Meredith Watson," he said. "I did not lock the door, turn out the lights, hold her down, or use any physical force whatsoever. We were both willing participants."

Fairfax claimed the allegations rose because he might have become governor of Virginia amid another scandal involving Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam.

"Make no mistake, if the facts alleged by Dr. Tyson and Ms. Watson were true, the conduct would be criminal," Fairfax said. "Such conduct is against everything I stand for in both my public and private life.

"In my 40 years, no one has ever alleged that I have ever done anything like what either of these women describe, allegations that were both first made public at the very moment that it appeared that I might become governor of this great commonwealth."
