Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam must resign now!
After apologizing last night for a racist photo in his 1984 medical school yearbook when he was 25 years old, he changed his story this morning questioning whether, in fact, it was him in blackface or wearing a white KuKluxKlan hood. His undergraduate military college nickname was ‘Coonman.’
His base of Democratic support has collapsed with our own Sen. Elizabeth Warren calling for his immediate resignation.
He should use his scheduled 2:30 press conference today to do the right thing and step down, clearing the way for Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, a black, progressive, rising star in our party.
