Justin Fairfax impeachment bill, feedback from colleagues


Justin Fairfax impeachment bill, feedback from colleagues.

A Virginia lawmaker has backed away from plans to introduce an impeachment bill seeking to oust Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax. Two women recently accused the Democrat—who has been thrust into the spotlight as the possible successor for Gov. Ralph Northam, who’s engulfed in a blackface scandal—of sexual assault in the 2000s.

Fairfax has strongly denied the claims. Democratic Delegate Patrick Hope previously said he wanted to introduce articles of impeachment Monday against Fairfax, but announced early Monday on Twitter that his plan has been postponed. “There has been an enormous amount of sincere and thoughtful feedback which has led to additional conversations that need to take place before anything is filed,” said the lawmaker. “We owe it to all parties involved—especially the victims— to make sure that we have thought through every option the General Assembly has. That’s what these conversations are for so we can build more consensus on a path forward.”
