Governor “Coonman” put out campaign materials in the Appalachian hills that failed to mention Fairfax, just him and Herring. The white candidates.

Typical Ivy League Democrat. Assumes the very worst about folks in flyover country, then tailors his political advertising to work within that false stereotype.

Disgusting.

“. If Northam appoints a Lt Gov to replace Fairfax, he could then resign having effectively appointed his own replacement.”

Yes.

The ‘President Pro Tem’ (a Republican) would serve temporarily as Lt Gov until the appointment. But that wouldn’t matter.

Blassey Ford coming forward 30 years later with no police report...

It's a scummy tactic, which won't be long tolerated by the public.

Don’t think so. Northam broke no law. The speaker of the house has said there is nothing to impeach Northam or Herring over. The speaker is a Republican.

Northam went to VMI and some podunk medical school. Hardly an “Ivy League Democrat.”

Doesn't matter. He thinks no differently than all elitist Dems, Ivy Leaguers included.

In 1971, I believe it was, VA had a special election for lieutenant governor, won by liberal Democrat whose name I can’t recall. Liberal pollster Larry Sabato used to be on the staff of this Democrat. His name may have been Henry Howell.

Spartacus has reversed course tonight and called on Fairfax to resign. He wouldn’t throw an up and coming Black pol like Fairfax under the bus without a mountain of additional evidence.

So my advice to you is don’t be an all women are liars “rube.”

The allegations by Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson are corroborated, painful stories of sexual assault and rape. It’s clear Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax should resign his office.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) February 9, 2019

There is no place for racism in America. Governor Northam has lost all moral authority and should resign immediately, Justin Fairfax is the leader Virginia needs now.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) February 2, 2019

I see the “Democrat News Media” succeeded diverting the attention away from child murder to black face.

VA passed a new constitution that took effect 1 July, 1971. It says:

“The Governor shall have power to fill vacancies in all offices of the Commonwealth for the filling of which the
Constitution and laws make no other provision. If such office be one filled by the election of the people, the
appointee shall hold office until the next general election, and thereafter until his successor qualifies, according to
law”

From what I have read, the transfer would happen like this.

1. The Governor would appoint a new Lt Governor.

2. During the next regular election, the electorate would select a new Lt Governor.

Once #1 happens, the Governor could resign and his LT would succeed to the office of Governor.

Caveat: I could be wrong.

Justin Fairfax has a great plan to beat these dastardly accusations- He’s going to change his name to “Justin Fitzgerald Clinton”. No more problems.
