Northam refuses to resign after racist photos surface from his past now says it wasn’t him in picture
According to the Associated Press Virginia Governor Ralph Northam refuses to resign saying it wasn’t him in medical school yearbook. The photo seems even more bizarre now as it is revealed it came from his medical school yearbook at Eastern Virginia medical school.
The photo in question is of two men one in black face the other in the outfit of a Klansman. Northam apologized yesterday evening twice saying it was him in the photo but not saying which character he portrayed.
Now ABC News also confirms Notham intends to serve out his term.
The source told ABC News that the governor will not resign, “period.”
“He will serve out his term.”
The source adds that Northam is telling associates that it is not him in the photo, and has been calling friends from medical school in an attempt to identify the men.
The Democratic Party of Virginia said in a statement Saturday that Northam should step down immediately and be replaced by Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax.
“We made the decision to let Governor Northam do the correct thing and resign this morning – we have gotten word he will not do so this morning. We stand with Democrats across Virginia and the country calling him to immediately resign. He no longer has our confidence or our support. Governor Northam must end this chapter immediately, step down, and let Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax heal Virginia’s wounds and move us forward. We can think of no better person than Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax to do so,” the statement said.
This is not the end of the story as Virginia Governor Ralph Northam refuses to resign. Because in current day America you can get away with saying you want babies murdered up until birth. You will be celebrated for that. But if you made a joke 35 years ago when times were much different and people had a sense of humor Northam will not survive this.
