It is not really likely, but it is really possible. Follow me on this. The governor, Ralph Northam is being called on to resign over wearing blackface in college. Should he resign, the Lt Gov is next in line.
But Justin Fairfax is in the middle of a sex scandal, with a woman claiming he forced her to give him oral sex at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. If he has to step aside, the next in line is the Attorney General of Virginia, Mark Herring. But after Herring insisted that Northam resin, it was discovered he too had worn blackface in college too.
Next in line is Speaker of the House of Delegates Kirkland Cox, a Republican.
“Virginia AG Herring offered to step aside as co-chair and the committee accepted,” a DACA spokesperson said in a statement.
In a meeting with black lawmakers earlier Wednesday, Herring admitted to wearing “brown makeup” as part of a costume to resemble rapper Kurtis Blow. “It sounds ridiculous even now writing it. But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes – and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives of others – we dressed up and put on wigs and brown makeup,” Herring said in a statement.
“That conduct clearly shows that, as a young man, I had a callous and inexcusable lack of awareness and insensitivity to the pain my behavior could inflict on others,” he continued. “It was really a minimization of both people of color, and a minimization of a horrific history I knew well even then.”
