RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - One of the two women accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault says his response has been "disgraceful, irresponsible and manipulative."
"Never was it two black women lynching black men," Tyson told interviewer Gayle King.
Both Tyson and the second woman to accuse him, Meredith Watson, are African American. So is Fairfax.
Tyson says Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex in 2004. Watson says she was raped in 2000. Fairfax says both encounters were consensual.
Fairfax, a Democrat, issued a statement Sunday saying he passed polygraph tests questioning whether the encounters were consensual.
