Virginia Dem Sues CBS Over Interviews With Sexual Assault Accusers
Earlier this year, Virginia was rocked by scandals involving the top two Democratic officials in the state. First was Governor Ralph Northam, who was criticized for appearing in blackface in an old yearbook, and soon after, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax faced accusations of sexual assault. While the controversies have not resulted in either Democrat stepping down, Fairfax brought the scandals back to life on Thursday, when he filed a lawsuit against CBS for airing interviews with both women accusers. As a result, the Old Dominion official is seeking $400 million in damages.
