Virginia voters and not elected officials you decide….

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam says he won’t resign over a racist photo in his 1984 yearbook. The photo of someone in blackface next to someone in a KKK hood surfaced just a couple of days ago, and Northam’s story about it has been inconsistent. He said it isn’t him in the picture, but did say he darkened his face to look like Michael Jackson for a dance contest that year. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner called for Northam to resign, but Northam insisted he would try to win over people who want him out.
