OR governor says Virginia’s Northam should resign

Open this

Abrams's historic candidacy-she would have been the first black female governor in US history-and the contention over the campaign-she insists Kemp suppressed votes although the race had high turnout-made it one of the most watched races in 2018. Herring, 57, came forward after rumours about the existence of a blackface photo of him began circulating at the Capitol.

The college professor who accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of a 2004 sexual assault has come forward - publicly identifying herself in a statement and describing the alleged attack in graphic detail.

"I think part of it is awareness, honestly, on these issues", she said.

Tyson, a 42-year-old political scientist who is on a fellowship at Stanford University and specializes in the political discourse of sexual assault, said, "I have no political motive". She has no political motivations, she added, and is a "proud Democrat". According to Tyson's statement, she had a consensual romantic encounter with Fairfax that turned into non-consensual sexual assault. "Given his false assertions, I'm compelled to make clear what happened". He said that their encounter was consensual.

Democratic operatives, beleaguered by several days of astonishing stories and overwhelming developments, grew jumpy at every email, text or Twitter alert on their phones.

Trump's tweet came hours before state Senate majority leader Tommy Norment confronted an unflattering disclosure from his own past - acknowledging a media report that he was managing editor of the 1968 Virginia Military Institute yearbook, which is awash with racist images and slurs.

Racial discrimination is more explicit in Virginia, which grapples with a legacy of slavery and white supremacy, but it also exists - in a more subtle form - in Oregon, Brown said.

Cavs Nearing Deal to Send Alec Burks to Houston Rockets
In exchange for Barnes, the Mavericks welcomed Jackson, 23, and Randolph, 37, who has not played this season. The Kings are receiving Alec Burks and a second-round pick from the Cavs as part of the deal.

Cox and state Republicans have called on Northam to resign. "There's just too much flying around".

He has declined to step down, at first apologizing for the photo, then saying he planned to prove he was not either of the people in the photo. He is third in line for the governor's office and is planning to run for governor in 2021.

He has remained in virtual seclusion since then, facing mounting calls for his resignation from fellow Democrats in Virginia, likely to be a key swing state in the 2020 presidential race.

The prospect of all three stepping down has raised the improbable scenario of the Democrats suddenly losing the governorship to a Republican without an election.

And an IL mayor, Hal Patton of Edwardsville, was running for the state Senate in 2018 when the Belleville News-Democrat newspaper published a photo of him in blackface at a Halloween party a decade earlier.

The Democratic approach stands in contrast to the recent strategy by Republicans, who have stuck with Trump after he brushed off allegations of sexual misconduct to win the White House and weathered repeated scandals in office.

Tyson, an associate professor of political science at Scripps College in Claremont, California, said in her statement that the news that Fairfax might succeed Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam due to a scandal over Northam's racist yearbook photo had "flooded me with painful memories, bringing back feelings of grief, shame, and anger". NBC host Megyn Kelly had her show canceled and was ousted from the network past year, after she suggested that wearing blackface is acceptable as part of a costume. But he acknowledged he once used shoe polish to blacken his face and look like Michael Jackson at a dance contest in Texas in 1984, when he was in the Army.
