Del. Patrick Hope says Fairfax has until Monday

RICHMOND, Va. – Del. Patrick Hope, D-Arlington, says that if Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax doesn't resign by Monday, he plans to introduce articles of impeachment. 

On Wednesday, Dr. Vanessa Tyson released a statement saying that Fairfax ''forced" himself on her with unzipped pants in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. On Friday, a second woman accused Fairfax of sexual assault, saying she was raped in a ''premeditated and aggressive'' assault.
