Two women who have come forward to accuse Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault are willing to testify at impeachment hearings, NBC News reported on Saturday night.
Patrick Hope, a member of the state legislature, has vowed to introduce an impeachment resolution if Fairfax does not resigned.
“On Monday, I will be introducing articles of impeachment for Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax if he has not resigned before then,” Hope promised.
