    Northam About to Get the Boot? VA Delegation Reportedly Rallies Around AG Herring

    Northam About to Get the Boot? VA Delegation Reportedly Rallies Around AG Herring

    Virginia Governor Northam’s days in office may be numbered. Under pressure from both sides of the aisle, first for endorsing murdering newborn babies and then for donning racist costumes while in med school.

    Endorsing infanticide was just fine. The media and Democrats continue to pretend it never happened. But Northam’s racist costume was a bridge too far, apparently.


    Thursday, Sen. Kaine (formerly on the ticket as Hillary’s VP hopeful) told The Washington Post the Virginia delegation believed Herring’s apology was sincere. Herring too is weathering a scandal of his own. When he was 19, he wore blackface while dressing up as a rap artist for a college party in 1980.

    From the WaPo:

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said Thursday that the state’s Democratic congressional delegation, which had called for Northam’s resignation, is withholding judgment on Herring, who is trying firm up support from Virginia’s black leaders.

    Kaine said that the delegation remained unified in its demand that Northam resign following his admission that he also wore blackface at a dance competition in 1984, in addition to the racist photo in his medical school yearbook.

    “We are likely to come out with a statement soon on the Herring case that, I think, we feel that we are generally in the same position – that he reached out to each of us individually, very apologetic,” Kaine told reporters in the U.S. Capitol after most of the Democratic delegation met in his office. “He is in dialogue with the legislative black caucus and African-American leadership in the state, and they have been impressed with his sincerity while they’ve been very disappointed with what happened.”

    Kaine, a former governor, said that the lawmakers felt Herring had been sincere in his apologies in a way that Northam had not, but the attorney general still “needs to answer questions of the press and the public too” to shore up support to continue in office.

    Just about everyone in Virginia’s political leadership is in the hot seat right now:

    My vote goes to this kid:

    The succession of power in VA – that is why they are not going to resign, and sudden silence is the new normal with all these scandals: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/ken-cuccinelli-got-gov-trouble-heres-how-virginias-succession-law-works

    A Republican would replace them ALL. Can’t have that!
