Va. Gov. Northam is refusing to step down, despite flood of calls for his resignation for ‘racist and offensive’ photo

Who would have thought that the guy who dressed up as either the klansman or the guy in blackface would be such a dick about it. He needs to either resign or switch party affiliation to Republican where he would be embraced for his racism:

RICHMOND — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) is refusing to resign despite overwhelming pressure from within his own party and has told at least one lawmaker that he now does not think that a racist photo in his 1984 yearbook includes him, Democratic party officials said Saturday.

Northam publicly apologized Friday for the medical school yearbook photo and acknowledged that he appeared in the image, which is of one man in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe.

But State Sen. L. Louise Lucas (D-Portsmouth) said that Northam called her Saturday morning and told her he did not think the picture was of him and he did not plan to resign.
