Fairfax accuser, Vanessa Tyson speaks out

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Vanessa Tyson, the woman who has accused Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault, made her first public appearance on Tuesday at a symposium at Stanford University to speak about the #MeToo movement.

"When survivors more broadly start comparing notes, right, that's when the lightbulb goes off of this has been happening to everybody.

And that's I think the most important part of #MeToo," said Tyson.

Tyson has accused Fairfax of forcing her to perform oral sex on him in a hotel room at the Democratic National Convention in 2004.

Fairfax denies the allegation.
