A Democrat member of the House of Representatives is encouraging critics to give Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, who admitted to wearing blackface at a party in the 1980’s, a pass for his racist actions.
“I think it’s more about values,” said Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “We would move from a progressive, very strong attorney general to someone who’s not just a Republican but someone who’s on the arch-conservative end of it.”
In other words, Republican values, which do not include wearing blackface, are still worse than progressive values, which do include wearing blackface. At least the Democratic Party is finally showing its true colors. It never really cared about “social justice” or “political correctness,” or any of the other crap it has been shoving down the throats of unwilling Americans for decades. All it cares about is power. In this case, it is willing to give racism a pass in order to keep power.
The entire Virginia Democratic Party was thrust into chaos two weeks ago when Big League Politics published a photo showing Gov. Ralph Northam wearing blackface or a KKK robe from his medical school yearbook. Days later, we published allegations of sexual assault made be Dr. Vanessa Tyson against Virginia’s Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax stemming from an incident at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Subsequently, a woman named Meredith Watson accused Fairfax of raping her during their time as students at Duke University.
Finally, Herring, third in the line of succession of the top elected officials in Virginia, admitted to wearing blackface at a fraternity party in 1980, getting ahead of the curve in case any photos of that event surfaced.
None of the men have resigned. Instead, the media has all but ceased coverage on the controversy, shifting the narrative instead to Confederate statues, which apparently Northam will tear down and move to museums in an effort to make up for his past racism.

HUGE: Mitt Romney Spokesman Reveals He’s Not an Automatic ‘No’ On SCOTUS Nominee Confirmation
Romney might vote to confirm a nominee.
Mitt Romney isn’t an automatic ‘no’ vote for a Supreme Court nominee in the Senate, contrary to initial reports suggesting that he would be.
Initial reports- just hours after Ginsberg’s death- from an anonymous(as usual) source claiming to be a Romney ‘insider’ had suggested that the Utah Senator was already planning to refuse a confirmation vote for a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

Senator Romney’s communications director, Liz Johnson, refuted the report just hours after former Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis claimed to have been privy to it.

A similar report had come out at the time of Ginsberg’s death, claiming that Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley was also planning to vote no on a potential Trump administration nominee. This report that was also promptly corrected by a Grassley spokesperson.
This is a game changer for the potential confirmation prospects of a Trump administration Supreme Court nominee. It leaves Maine’s Susan Collins and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski as the only outstanding Republican ‘no’ votes on a nominee, hypothetically opening up a possibility of 51 votes(if every single Democrat votes against a SCOTUS nominee) to confirm a judge in the Senate.
It’s even possible to confirm a SCOTUS judge with fifty votes and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker, but an extra potential vote would give Senate Republicans breathing room for error.
Romney is known for his liberal sympathies, but he has not come out in opposition to a SCOTUS nominee as of yet. He’ll doubtlessly receive a load of invective and hate from the progressive left for refusing to instantly ice a new judge, especially if he actually votes in favor of the confirmation of the eventual nominee.
