Statement by Board Chair Michael Bills on Lieutenant Governor Fairfax

In response to the serious allegations of sexual assault that have surfaced against Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, Clean Virginia Board Chair Michael Bills released the following statement:

“The accounts of Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson are credible. Furthermore, the manner in which Mr. Fairfax has responded to these allegations has displayed a serious lack of judgment and profound disrespect for women and sexual assault survivors. Taken together,  these allegations and his response should disqualify Mr. Fairfax from public office. Now more than ever, Virginia needs its leaders to be able to govern with public trust and moral authority, both of which Mr. Fairfax has lost. I call on him to resign.”
