I saw this morning that the LT Governor has now been accused of sexual harassment. Looks like it's turning into "Designated Survivor" there.

Yep. I posted that in its own thread. Thought about combining it here, but it's a different enough situation that it really deserved its own freak show thread.

Someone is finally asking the proper question in this mess. How the republicans missed both this picture and be nickname in the college yearbook.

Turns out that the Republican national governors association was responsible for opposition research for the Gillespie campaign. Gillespie wasn't exactly popular with them.  They were very lukewarm in their support. I'm working on the theory that this was not an accident. It was deliberately withheld from the Gillespie campaign to hinder his chances.

ANNNNNDDDD.... it may very well be a REPUBLICAN governor:

https://wjla.com/news/local/virginia-attorney-general-mark-herring-blackface

3rd in line for the Governorship has just admitted to a blackface photo from his college years.

YET AGAIN, it seems the Republicans are terrible at research. 

JUST when you thought it couldn't get any crazier... I'm just in awe.

This could turn into killing three birds with one stone.
I actually doubt it but who knows at this point.

BTW: I don't seem to recall all these blackface parties back in the day.

You probably weren't hanging out with a lot of liberal Democrats.

Wasn't there a picture of Hillary and Bill doing something along these lines. Fuzzy memory on it here and it may have been photoshopped anyway. May be getting my memory crossed up with something else.

There's a photo of a woman in black-face who might be Hillary Clinton, as some have suggested, but I guess its authenticity has not been confirmed.

Snopes has said it isn't the Clintons so that has been settled once and for all.

Me neither.  Some of it looks like it was done as a gag or a Halloween costume, but these same people would not hesitate to call a Republican a racist if they had done the same.  The Gov over there did call the Republican opponent a racist.

The only time I recall it being done was a group I was in doing a Halloween Scare thing at the school.  A few of the guys darkened their face and wore black and jumped out of a side hallway to scare people coming through.  If I remember right, I just had a big mosquito net over me.

The person assigned to test it's authenticity was found dead after shooting themselves in the back of the head 5 times with a musket, then jumping off a 40 story building, then setting themselves on fire, and then hanging themselves after typing a 50 page note. Foul play is not suspected and their death has been ruled a suicide.

NYT is "reporting" it as "He was in dark makeup". Hurray for unbiased journalism!

I'm getting very interested in seeing how the LT Governor thing plays out with the people who were attacking Kavanaugh. His accuser hired Ford's lawyers and he just hired Kavanaugh's lawyers.
