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.

what i want to know is....how the hell did Ed Gillespies campaign have missed this??...talk about a October surprise....yeesh.
Ralphie Boy’s a SMIRKIST??!? This will not stand!!
Make NOW take a position on this. What have they said? What has the head of Planned Parenthood said? Where is Al “Jew them down” Sharpton? Where is Shawn King?
So many people for Anderson Pooper to call.
I would love to see how vehemently these Democrats would be calling for him to go if his Lt. Governor was a Republican.
Democrats are in damage control mode. They are still bitter that stolen Senator Al Franken stepped down over a scandal they couldn’t mitigate fast enough.
Who was the editor of that yearbook and which news agency does he work for today?
Someone made a judgment call to approve inclusion of the photo.
Who is that in the Klansman (or Klanswoman) outfit with him?
Takes 3 to tango.
I think PP said he has to go. LOL 2 mil dollars down that drain. LOL
God’s judgment: Northum is anot evil, despicable man who openly supports the wholesale murder of babies.
>>I think this is to get him out of the way because of his infanticide remarks. That was starting to get too much attention. The Democrat leadership is quite happy with abortion and infanticide, but the governor spoke too openly about it and that brought things to light so the governor has to go. So they found some ancient things that the Social Justice Warriors can be outraged about and demand that he resign.
It reminds me of President Clinton’s surgeon general was who “rushed out” allegedly over remarks that schools should teach teenagers how to masturbate.
Joycelyn Elders’ real sin was to come clean about healthcare rationing saying that old people “are just gonna die anyway” and that resources should be used on the young because they are the ones who will be paying into Socialist Security to keep it viable.
>>Say, is this dimwit a guy that signed the new abortion legislation allowing post birth killings, and non physicians to do the deed?
It’s okay for non-physicians to kill babies once they are out of the womb, the mother is safe from any physical damage.
Safe - legal - rare is a lie.
Democrats were okay with Gossnell killing women. Democrats will tell you that the issue of abortion is more important than the death of a few women. Botched abortions from licensed clinics are not the stuff of MSM news. Corruption kept Gossnell from being prosecuted or closed down far earlier.
“No More Babies” Sanger wasn’t about “freedom of choice” or “a woman’s right to choose” to have a baby.
She was a foul bitter anti-breeder bigot.
Urged a policy of NO MORE BABIES in Europe for a period of 10 years in Europe in the wake of WWII and so what to the women who wanted kids and would not be able to bear them after her moratium was lifted.
See if PP will demand that he return “their” (our) money.
Why do they suddenly want him to go?
Dan Bongino was sent this yearbook photo last year, so obviously the Dems already knew about it.
Re Sen. (ex Gov) Kaine and Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) not joining in asking Gov. Northum to resign for his Black Face and Baby Killing comments, the reason is simple.
We have “Killer Kaine”, who was a weak governor and even weaker and stupider Senator. No guts.
Mark Warner - the older he gets, the more stupid and discombobulated he sounds, esp. on the Sen. Intelligence Committee.
So we are cursed with two cowards, “Coward Kaine” and “Weak Warner”, plus Gov. Dr. Gosnell II.
Dr. Mengele liked children. Dr. Northum likes children. Both liked to kill them. Nothing changes.
Now I know that Northum is NOT Dr. Mengele but his disrespect for life is appalling for a doctor.
Just ask yourself this question: Now, after having heard what he has said on a number of issues, “would you take your child to see him”?
I had two incredible caring doctors in my family, my late uncle (a GP who delivered an estimated 3000-4000 babies with privileges at every hospital in Baltimore) and my late
father-in-law, a pediatrician and professor of Pediatrics at Geo. Wash. and Georgetown Un hospitals.
I saw them take care of everyone who came into their offices, esp. the children. They had souls. I wonder what Northum has, because if it is a soul, politics has corrupted it beyond belief.
Seeing his long-standing interest in pediatrics I can’t help but wonder what other skeletons he has hanging in his sordid little closet.
Neurological pediatrics. Scary thought ain’t it?
