The two women accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of rape said Saturday that they are ready to testify at an impeachment hearing.
Venessa Tyson and Meredith Watson both said they wanted to publicly face Mr. Fairfax’s and refute his claims that the sex was consensual.
Mr. Fairfax, under intense pressure to resign over the rape allegations, including from his own Virginia Democratic Party, has vowed to fight to clear his name.
At least one Democratic state House member has said he will introduce articles of impeachment Monday.
The rape accusations added to a political maelstrom for Virginia’s Democratic leaders, with revelations that Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring wore blackface in the 1980s.
