Fairfax accuser on scrutiny and criticism

A few days after Vanessa Tyson publicly alleged that Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax sexually assaulted her, Meredith Watson stepped forward with claims that Fairfax raped her in 2000 when they were both students at Duke University. Watson and Tyson say they have never met. Fairfax denies these allegations. Watson said the Me Too movement gave her hope that her voice would be heard, but she tells "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King she believes her past has been unfairly scrutinized since she stepped forward publicly with her story.
