Richmond Times-Dispatch calls on Virginia Gov. Northam to resign

32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The Richmond Times-Dispatch, the primary daily newspaper in Virginia's capital city, is calling on Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam to resign following the emergence of a racist yearbook photo he appeared in during his time in medical school.

The newspaper published an editorial on Friday night after Northam apologized in a statement. In a video released later Friday evening, Northam indicated he plans to serve out his term.

"The photograph reveals a lack of adult judgment that is disturbing. It does not erase Northam's service in the military or his compassion as a physician. It does, however, strongly suggest that he should, for the good of Virginia, step down from its highest office and allow Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax to succeed him," the editorial reads.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

He is a Dem.  It will not be a big deal. Al Sharpton will absolve him of sin. Just like a former Grand Dragon of the Klan being in the senate was ok, becuase he is a dem

Mark Levin made these points just tonight:  the Washington Post has a massive investigative team and a lot of resources.  Why wasn't this uncovered when Northam was a candidate to become Lieutenant Governor, or at least when he ran to be Governor?  If he were a Republican, his career would have been thoroughly destroyed many years ago.

Very True if he was a Republican they would be marching in streets protesting, CNN would be the lead story every 5 minutes, Sharpton would be all over the TV blasting this racist.

 

As a Dem he will get a break

 

My personal opinion if he did this as youth in college, whether he was Republican or Democrat I would over look it.

Apparently, CNN forgot he was a Democrat.
