Opinion We might finally get the truth about allegations against Justin Fairfax

The FBI reportedly is investigating the sexual allegations made by two women against then-Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax. The allegations emerged when it appeared that Mr. Fairfax might soon become governor. The best way to try to determine who is telling the truth is to conduct an investigation, which is welcome. We can’t think of another prominent man accused of sexual assault who has gone to such lengths, which would put him at some risk. That, of course, doesn't mean he is lying and the women are lying, which for far too long was the assumption when rape victims came forward, which was assumed they were lying, we say. The women's allegations have not been disproved, but Mr Fairfax has raised some questions and pointed out some inconsistencies.
