Photo Shows Virginia Gov. Northam In Blackface or KKK Hood

After serving just one year in office, Virginia’s 73rd Governor Ralph Northam (D) may be heading home much earlier than expected as calls for his resignation increase.

The Governor came under overwhelming scrutiny after his medical school yearbook became public which shows two men in costumes, one in black face and the other in a KKK hood.

Northam confirmed his presence in the photo in a public apology. It is not clear which outfit he is in. Such a bombshell should have been uncovered during the campaign.

The news broke around 5 pm. No sooner than that did the leading leftist group MoveOn.org withdraw their support:

Presidential candidates Julian Castro and Kamala Harris called for Northam’s resignation as well:

In an apparent attempt to keep his term alive, Northam released the following apology:

By 8 pm, even Planned Parenthood was calling for Northam’s resignation:

“In the wake of the release of yearbook photos of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam engaging in racist actions and language, Planned Parenthood Federation of America is calling for him to step down as governor of Virginia.”

By midnight the Democratic Caucus of the Virginia House called for his resignation:

“We regret to say that we are no longer confident in the Governor’s representation of Virginians. Though it brings us no joy to do so, we must call for Governor Northam’s resignation.”

As if that was not bad enough, Ralph Northam already became the target of the pro-life movement after he made comments that appeared to condone post-birth abortion.

Between taking the abortion discussion beyond birth and now flooding the news cycle with a Democrat in racist garb, the Democrat Party can not get rid of this guy fast enough.

Other Democratic leadership calling for his resignation are:

  • Virginia Legislative Black Caucus
  • The Virginia Senate Democrats
  • Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe

“Governor Ralph Northam must resign.” – Congressman Ted Leiu (D- CA)
