Just when you thought the #MeToo movement has calmed down, another voice cries out.

College professor Vanessa Tyson has issued a statement detailing her alleged assault at the hands of Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax in 2004, according to MSN.

MSN describes her statement as “lengthy”: “With tremendous anguish, I am now sharing this information about my experience and setting the record straight,” Tyson wrote in her statement. “It has been extremely difficult to relive that traumatic experience from 2004. Mr. Fairfax has tried to brand me as a liar to a national audience, in service to his political ambitions, and has threatened litigation. Given his false assertions, I’m compelled to make clear what happened.”

What is Fairfax saying about of this?

He has denied Tyson’s allegations. “I wish her no harm or humiliation, nor do I seek to denigrate her or diminish her voice,” he said. “But I cannot agree with a description of events that I know is not true.” Unsurprisingly, Fairfax’s response did not sit well with Tyson. According to CBS News, she said, “I cannot believe, given my obvious distress, that Mr. Fairfax thought this forced sexual act was consensual. To be very clear, I did not want to engage in oral sex with Mr. Fairfax and I never gave any form of consent.”

Tyson’s statement came out the same day that Mark Herring, Virginia Attorney General, admitted to wearing blackface when he was a student in college.
