The law firm also said Watson had "shared her account of the rape with friends in a series of emails and Facebook messages that are now in our possession".
Watson claims she confided in Fairfax about a previous rape and when she asked him, "Why did you do it?" Fairfax did not deny he had an encounter with Tyson, but said it was consensual and the accusation was an attempt to smear him when he was poised to become governor of Virginia. "These allegations have not been substantiated in any way". "It is demonstrably false".
I demand a full investigation into these unsubstantiated and false allegations. "I have passed two full field background checks by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and run for office in two highly contested elections with nothing like this being raised before".
The woman who has accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of raping her while they were Duke students 20 years ago also says a Duke basketball player raped her. "She said he knew that she didn't like what was happening, but he kept pushing her down".

The second woman to accuse embattled Virginia lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault claims the alleged incident occurred a year after she said she was also raped by an unnamed Duke basketball player, A.J.
"He needs to address this as a private citizen", the statement read. "The time has come for him to step down". He attended the funeral for a state trooper killed in a shootout. Northam spent the week in seclusion after a racist picture on the personal page of his medical school yearbook was discovered.
Calls were mounting for Virginia's lieutenant governor to resign Saturday, at the tail end of an astonishing week that saw the state's top three elected officials - all Democrats - embroiled in potentially career-ending scandals fraught with questions of race, sex and power.
Fairfax denied the first allegation in a February 6 statement. "These allegations are horrific, they need to be taken very seriously".
Susan Swecker, the party's chairwoman, said Fairfax can't serve effectively because of the allegations. Mark Warner did not call for Fairfax's resignation immediately.
One state House member, Democrat Patrick Hope, said on Twitter that he planned to introduce articles of impeachment for Fairfax on Monday unless he resigned.

The woman who made the allegation says Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex in 2004 in MA. On Friday, she took that statement a step further.
"The central issue at the heart of her account is consent, and there can be no better authority to decide whether it was given than Dr. Tyson herself".
Meredith Watson released details of the assault through her attorney.
The pressure on Fairfax, who responded to Watson by saying he would not resign, and relative lack of pressure on Northam would have been nearly unthinkable a week earlier, when Fairfax looked bound to be the nation's only black governor and Northam looked to be headed for the door.
Friday's allegation from Meredith Watson comes just days after Vanessa Tyson accused him of sexual assault back in 2004.
In a statement to NPR, a spokesman for Virginia GOP Chairman Jack Wilson offered a slightly more cautious response. "We learn from our mistakes and I'm a stronger person", Northam said.

Pero deja abierta la puerta a que en algún momento reaparezca como un Wolverine viejo. Creo que fue sabio de su parte decir 'hasta aquí, no puedo más'.
Fairfax has vehemently denied both allegations against him and told anyone who would listen on Friday that he believes he will be able to move past this scandal by telling his story.
