Months later, on election day, Nov. 7, 2017, the news letter, Watson to a contact about their support for Fairfax.

“I see you have promoted Justin Fairfax on FB this is despite the knowledge that he raped me, overwhelming for me. Are you seriously vote for him today? #METOO,” she wrote.

Fox News has not independently the authenticity of the messages that were released by a spokesman for Watson confirmed.

Watson, who first went public with their accusations against Fairfax, last Friday, she claims she was raped by him in the year 2000 “, while they were both students at Duke University,” according to a statement from the company Smith P. C. Mullin

“Mr. Fairfax, the attack was premeditated and aggressive,” the statement said. “The two were friends, but never dated or had any romantic relationship.

“Ms. Watson shared her account of the rape with friends in a series of E-Mails and Facebook messages that are now in our possession. In addition, we have statements from former classmates have substantiated that Ms. Watson immediately told friends that Mr. Fairfax had been raped.”

Nancy Erica Smith, Watson’s lawyer, also said that, if you had, allegedly, raped by the basketball player, Fairfax was among those that told you.

“Mr. Fairfax, of this front of attack against Mrs Watson, as he explained to her, while the only encounter you have with him after the rape. She was in the campus party when he came, and he followed her.

The Facebook messages from March 2017 to offer a similar bill, to say to Watson: [He] told me, he did it on purpose, bcuz what has Corey and bcuz he knew I would be too scared to do something about it.”

Fairfax, on Friday denied the accusations and called them “demonstrably false.”

“I’ve never forced myself on anyone,” Fairfax said in a statement on Friday evening. “I demand a full investigation into these baseless and false accusations. Such an investigation will confirm my account, because I’m telling the truth.”

Fairfax said the allegation was orchestrated part of a “vicious and co-ordinated smear campaign” against him. He is also not obliged to resign.

Fairfax is also forces with a view to allegations from the California college professor, Dr. Vanessa C. Tyson, the defendant, Fairfax, to oral sex in a hotel room in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. Fairfax called the statement a political libel.

Over the weekend, Tyson said she would be willing to testify against Fairfax in possible impeachment proceedings.

The allegations against Fairfax come in the middle of a political fire storm in Virginia, increased from day to day.
