Virginia GOP renews call for hearing on Fairfax allegations

Republican lawmakers in Virginia are renewing their push to hold a bipartisan hearing into sexual assault allegations two women have made against the state's Democratic lieutenant governor.

Fairfax has denied any wrongdoing.

Most House Democrats having opposed a public hearing, saying it would be little more than a political stunt.

The GOP's renewed push comes after The Washington Post's editorial board said earlier this week that the legislature should move forward with a hearing.
