The woman claimed Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex while they were students at Duke University in 2000.

This after another woman accused him of sexually assaulting her at a DNC convention back in 2004.

Fairfax issued statement late Friday following the second accusation, denying the incident took place, and vowing not to resign from his post.
