Top Level DEMS Now Publicly Calling For Fellow Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam to RESIGN

A recent photo from Governor Ralph Northam’s 1984 year book has surfaced showing him dressed in a offensive costume according to his own statements.

According to The NY Times, Virginia’s governor acknowledged on Friday that he was photographed more than 30 years ago in a costume that was “clearly racist and offensive” — admitting that he had dressed either as a member of the Ku Klux Klan or in blackface — but resisted calls for his resignation.

“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” Ralph Northam, the Democratic governor, said in a statement on Friday evening. “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.”

Initially Liberal media organizations and personalities attempted to deflect and make comparisons, but those that did are making quite for fool of themselves right about now.

Following the admission and the news many top level Democrats and organizations have publicly called for Northam’s resignation.

Senator and 2020 Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris called for Northam’s resignation tweeting, “Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.”

he President and CEO of the NAACP has also called on Governor Ralph Northam to resign.

“Black face in any manner is always racist and never okay. No matter the party affiliation, we can not stand for such behavior, which is why the @NAACP is calling for the resignation of Virginia Governor @RalphNortham,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson tweeted.

It doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat. This behavior was racist and unconscionable. Governor Northam should resign,” Julian Castro, another Democratic 2020 presidential candidate, said.
