Virginia sex allegations are latest against state officials
Virginia‘s lieutenant governor has denied newly publicized allegations that he sexually assaulted two women years ago and has vowed to continue serving in office. It’s a scenario that already has played out in several other states, with differing conclusions.
At least six other statewide elected officials have faced allegations of sexual misconduct since 2017. Several initially resisted calls to step down before eventually doing so under the pressure of public scrutiny and ongoing investigations.
