IRONIC: Virginia’s 3rd-Term-Abortion Governor Won’t Survive His First Term

0 380

Virginia’s top Democrat state leadership is in the midst of a Mega Scandal and it is really beginning to look like it will result in casualties of all of its top three leaders.

The calls for the resignation of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam hit a fever pitch this week, with Pelosi, Hillary, Joe Biden, Planned Parenthood, and many other high profile Democrats demanding that he resign of the blackface yearbook photo form 1984.

Just a week after he defended third term, 40 week abortions, and seemingly beyond with infanticide, Northam is barely holding on to the beginning of his first term as governor.

Last Friday, images circulated from Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook page showing two people in racist garb, one in blackface and the other in a Klansman costume.

After initially apologizing for the image, the Democrat has since claimed that neither of the people pictured is him — although Northam added he did wear blackface on another occasion, as part of a Michael Jackson costume.

The calls for Northam to step down are deafening:

Hillary Clinton:

Her former running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine:

Sens. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), along with Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.), issued a joint statement on Saturday urging him to resign after a widely panned press conference.

“After we watched his press conference today, we called Governor Northam to tell him that we no longer believe he can effectively serve as Governor of Virginia and that he must resign,” they said in a statement.

Former Virginia Governor L. Douglas Wilder (the first elected black governor in the U.S.):

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe:

Former Vice President Joe Biden:

California Senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris:

New Jersey Senator and presidential candidate Cory Booker:

Massachusetts Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren:New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

And the list of high profile people and organizations goes on like the Congressional Black Caucus and NARAL.

How he survives this is beyond me.

Virginia’s nine congressional Democrats issued a joint statement late Thursday restating that Gov. Ralph Northam should resign over a blackface photograph in his medical school yearbook.

They did not yet make a recommendation for Lt. Governor Jason Fairfax, accused of sexual assault, or  the state’s attorney general, Mark Herring, who admitted this week to wearing blackface at a college party in 1980.

“Like other Virginians, we have been devastated by these horrible developments,” the statement said.

“We are brokenhearted that the actions of Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring have reopened old wounds left by Virginia’s long history of slavery, Jim Crow segregation, and systemic racism. There’s no question that Virginians’ faith in their government and leaders has understandably been deeply shaken.”

The statement noted that all nine lawmakers “have each publicly called for Governor Northam to resign. But it said that Herring had “earnestly reached out to each of us to apologize and express his deep remorse.

Democrats in Virginia have expressed fear the crises could jeopardize their chances of taking control of the GOP-dominated legislature this year after big gains in 2017. If all three officeholders step down, the Republican speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates Kirk Cox would be next in line to be governor.

Fairfax would be next line in line for the governorship if Northam resigned. That would be followed by Herring. In the end, by the Republican Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates, Kirk Cox.
