Is appearing in Blackface thirty-five years ago a high crime or misdemeanor?  :shrug:

Neither. 

I would love for the top 3 to resign.

The majority of African Americans in Virginia do not believe that their embattled Democratic Governor Ralph Northam should step down, according to a new poll.

Released on Saturday,  the  Washington Post-Schar School poll showed that Virginians overall are evenly split on whether Northam should resign in the wake of a scandalous photo from his 1984 medical school yearbook emerging. The controversial photo shows two men, one of whom is dressed in black face and the other in a Ku Klux Klan costume.

The governor initially apologized when the image was reported, admitting that he was in the photo. However, a day later, he backtracked saying he had since realized the image was not of him but that he had once donned blackface when he performed as Michael Jackson. Leading Democratic lawmakers and officials, as well as Virginia’s black caucus,  have called for Northam’s ouster in the wake of the scandal.

But according to the new poll, 47 percent of Virginians believe the governor should remain in office while and equal percentage believe he should step down. Among African-Americans, 58 percent believe he should remain governor, while just 37 percent say he should step aside. An additional 5 percent of African Americans had no opinion on the topic.

Regardless of the Black support or lack thereof for Northam,  I still don't see a significant number of Virginia Blacks switching over to the Republican party.

I don't believe Northam should step down either nor Herring..... nor Faifax. I hope they stay right where they are....
