Woman accuses elected Virginia official of sexual assault

Manassas VA. He admitted on Feb. 6 2019 that he wore blackface to a college party amid the controversy surrounding resurfaced

She revealed her recollection of the encounter Wednesday, on the same day that the state's attorney general, Mark Herring, admitted to wearing blackface as a college student.

While both sides are now being hit, the controversy kicked off last week when Democrats called for the resignation of Gov. Ralph Northam over a racist photograph featured on his personal page in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

"After Fairfax won his lieutenant governor race, Tyson followed up with a November 2017 email asking to talk to Scott about her dislike of Fairfax and then texted Scott in December 2017 to inform him that the then-lieutenant governor-elect had a "#MeToo allegation" against him.

Of course, at this writing Northam is still governor, having refused to resign despite mounting calls for him to do so from his own party. "But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes - and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives of others - we dressed up and put on wigs and brown makeup".

Herring described his actions as a "minimisation" of people of colour, and of America's fraught racial history, which he says he was well aware of at the time.

But he also said: "This conduct is in no way reflective of the man I have become in the almost 40 years since". "I did not speak about it for years, and I (like most survivors) suppressed those memories and emotions as a necessary means to continue my studies, and to pursue my goal of building a successful career as an academic".

National Enquirer Parent Says It Will Investigate Jeff Bezos Extortion Claims
Rather than accepting the deal, Bezos went public, making a bet that sunlight is the best disinfectant in a sordid case like this. In a blogpost on Thursday, Bezos cited an email from AMI deputy general counsel, Jon Fine , to a lawyer representing de Becker.

Northam, the governor, has been fighting for his political survival since the emergence of the university yearbook photo featuring two figures standing together - one in blackface, the other dressed in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.

With its historic ties to 19th-century USA minstrel shows in which white performers would caricature black slaves, blackface is widely seen as racist in modern America, though it remained a trope of popular television shows and movies through the 1980s.

The identity of the two men isn't clear from the pictures alone but the fact it appears on Northam's yearbook page is a strong suggestion one of them is him. But he acknowledged he once used shoe polish to blacken his face and look like Michael Jackson at a dance contest in Texas in 1984, when he was in the Army.

"I have spoken with Lieutenant Governor Fairfax and assured him that, should he ascend to the governorship, he will have my complete support and commitment to ensuring his success and the success of our Commonwealth", he said.

Tyson accused Fairfax of forcing her to perform a sexual act when the two were in his hotel room during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.

Scott himself was previously accused of sexual harassment by a former aide, who said he touched her inappropriately when she was working in his Washington office in 2013.

Nantes have demanded payment from Cardiff City over £15m Emiliano Sala transfer
On January 21, Sala was travelling from Nantes to Wales with pilot David Ibbotson , but the aircraft lost contact near Guernsey. A search team found wreckage of the plane on Sunday in the English Channel, but bodies have not been recovered or identified .

He subsequently learned the accusation involved Tyson - but didn't learn the "the full scope of the allegation" until she spoke out this week, Barbera said. Tyson said that she has no political motive and is a "proud Democrat".

"We reiterate that this allegation is false", a spokeswoman for Fairfax told Insider. Fairfax rejected her claim and insisted their encounter was "consensual".

"At no time did she express to me any discomfort or concern about our interactions, neither during that encounter, nor during the months following it, when she stayed in touch with me, nor the past 15 years", he said.

In her letter, she wrote that she worked with sexual assault survivors both before and after the assault.

The governor initially said he was in the photo without saying which costume he was wearing, then denied it a day later.
