Two of the three government staffers working for Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax and two employees of his political action committee resigned after he was accused of sexual assault by a second woman. His staff is now made up of his communications director Lauren Burke, who remains employed by his PAC and Larry Roberts, his chief of staff, who is a state employee. Fairfax’s policy director and scheduling director resigned, along with Dave Mills, the executive director of Faifax’s PAC, We Rise Together, and Courtney McCargo, a fundraiser for the PAC. Mills is the husband of state Senator Jennifer McClellan, who is considered a strong contender to replace Fairfax should he step down. In addition to being lieutenant governor, Fairfax is also a lawyer at the firm Morrison & Foerster, which has placed him on paid leave.
