Skip to comments.High Profile Democrats call on Northum to Resign, As Governor Vows to Finish Term
Posted on 02/01/2019 7:27:06 PM PST by tcrlaf
A series of prominent Democrats demanded Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's resignation on Friday, excoriating him for appearing in a racist yearbook photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the KKK's signature white hood and robes.
The calls came from a number of 2020 presidential candidates, members of Congress and prominent liberal organizations, all of whom said Northam's apology on the issue was not enough. The NAACP also called for Northam to leave office. Those calls, however, were not echoed by Virginia Democrats, including Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner. Both said they were shocked and offended by the photos, but in separate statements both said it was time for the governor to think about what comes next for him and to listen to those he has offended. Northam, for his part, has vowed to finish his one and only term as Virginia governor, issuing a video statement on Friday evening where he apologized but pledged to remain in office.

Baby murderer gots to go!
Eating their own. Next up the Harris-Booker slug fest in the main arena.
This is all theater meant to set the precedent to drive Trump from office over some silly thing he did or said 50 years ago.
What’s so funny is the Democrats are fine with him murdering babies, but God forbid he should dress up in the 80’s in black face.
Shaking my head, these folks are crazy.
PP has given him 2 mil over the last five years. LOL Bad investment.
I hope he resigns, but I also hope it gets dragged out.
Coonman is going to tough it out.
They'll still have Fairfax in their pocket. The money was to keep a Republican out of the Governorship.
He’s saying he is going to finish his term. LOL
I call him Sheets II.
Dems had NO comment when Northam called for the killing of FULL TERM BABIES..but OMG OUTRAGE he wore a klansman outfit(or blackface) 40 years ago
I say he is gone by Mon.
Dem operatives go after him after his stupid ass comments
They were incredibly stupid AND revealing
Gee a woman gives birth. Then they can decide to kill or save it
Been played on media 100000000 times
Whammpn! The blackface / kkk pic from 1980 whatever
Can u just imagine if they found THAT during kavanaugh hearings ?
All they had was hearsay garbage
No problem with his views on murdering newborns, but raise hell because he wore blackface decades ago? Libs have no respect for life
Dems were cool with the baby murdering. It was the 35-year old blackface photo that sealed his fate.
Democrats have strange priorities.
And the other thought is God got rid of him. Couldn’t convince these idiots to stop murdering babies so he unveiled the one thing that would make the dems go nuts.
Hoping he’ll go after the ones in NY!!
Yes, Northam committed the worst possible sin a Democrat can make. He revealed what they really think.
