Breaking: Virginia Black Caucus, House Democrat Caucus and Senate Democrat Caucus Call on Governor Northam to Resign… Update: McAuliffe Too
A picture from Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook surfaced on Friday showing two men, one in a KKK hood and robe and one in ‘blackface’ on the same page as Northam.
The photo was first published by Big League Politics on Friday and later confirmed by other outlets such as WaPo and The Virginian Pilot.
One half of the page shows Ralph Northam wearing a suit jacket and a tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and another of him leaning up against a convertible.
The Virginia Democrat leadership defended the far left governor over the racist photos.
The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus called on Democrat Governor Ralph Northam to resign on Friday so they can start healing.
“Given what was revealed today, it is clear that he can no longer effectively serve as Governor. It is time for him to resign, so that Virginia can begin the process of healing.”
