Democrats Call for Resignation, Impeachment of LG Fairfax

Among growing calls for resignation from the Democratic party and a new allegation from a second woman against Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax (D), Democratic Delegate Patrick Hope (47th HoD) has indicated he may seek impeachment of the LG.

In a tweet Friday evening, Hope said he will be introducing articles of impeachment against Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax on Monday unless he has resigned by that time.

Earlier Friday, a joint statement was released from Virginia Democratic Representatives Abigail Spanberger, Don Beyer, Jennifer Wexton, Elaine Luria, and Gerry Connolly calling for Fairfax to step down as Lieutenant Governor.

Others joined in the call for Fairfax to resign.
