I think the biggest reason they're taking the charges against the Lt. Gov so seriously at this point is to set an example for removing  Kavanaugh from office

Trump is such a bigot he even causes bigotry in the past.

So, looks like Northam has said that he's NOT going to resign and that he's going to use the remaining 3 years of his term to go on a continuous Great Virginia Blackface Minstrel Tour.

I wonder if he'll moonwalk... I'd pay to see that.


Oh, and also, the guy who said that he was going to bring charges of impeachment against the Lt. Gov. today if he didn't resign?

He's walked that back.

They're backing off now because they've realized that by pushing it would hand the state over to the GOP.
If it was just the gov they would be pushing hard but now that it's the top three.........

Yeah, I hope the Republican party in general remembers to use that against the dems the next time the dems cry about Rs "taking party over morals!" They probably won't though.

Northam now says it wasn't him in the photo because he never owned trousers like that.

We need a score sheet to keep track of how many stories he can come up with.

Also, he would have been wearing an onion on his belt, which was the style at the time.

Pantsgate

Or should that be reserved for the Lt. Gov?

Blackfacegate I
Pantsgate
Blackfacegate II

And the Speaker (R) becomes governor.

#Metoo will die in VA.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on for the motherland.

They can't let only the Lt. Gov. take the fall in this or the Democrats will lose support from the black community.

They can't let only the Governor resign, because the Atty. General is guilty of the exact same "crime".

They can't force the Governor out of office because he hasn't committed an actual crime.

So, it looks like they're going to go with "sweep it all under a rug and claim it's all in the past and therefore no big deal" and just rely on the press to cover for them when they accuse a Republican of much lesser crimes. (or "crimes" as in the case of the Gov. and AG.) And just whistle past the #metoo implications.

At least they got that baby-slaughtering stuff out of the headlines. Moloch must be fed.
