Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax has resigned his position at a McLean law firm, six months after he was placed on paid administrative leave following past sexual assault allegations.
In a statement, Fairfax said the firm, Morrison and Foerster, investigated the allegations and found "no hint of wrongdoing."
The firm, in another statement sent to the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Monday "confirmed that the investigation only related to Fairfax’s time there."
In February, two women came forward accusing Fairfax sexual assault. One allegation stemmed from Fairfax's college days at Duke University and the other the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
Fairfax has consistently called the accusations unsubstantiated and false, claiming they were the result of "a vicious and and coordinated smear campaign" against him.
The Fairfax accusations are just one of several scandals to rock the top tier of Virginia's government earlier this year. First, a racist photo surfaced from Gov. Ralph Northam's 1984 medical college yearbook, following by the governor's admission that he once wore "blackface" when he dressed up as Michael Jackson for a dance contest that same year.
Next came the Fairfax sexual assaults allegations, followed by Attorney General Mark Herring admitting that he, too, donned black face at a party in 1980.
