EXCLUSIVE: Virginia Republicans Respond to Scandal-Plagued Democrat Leaders Northam, Fairfax and Herring

The scandal has engulfed the Democratic Party of Virginia.

Two prominent Virginia Republicans have responded to the controversy engulfing the state’s top three elected opinions, all Democrats.

Gov. Ralph Northam was photographed in blackface or a KKK robe in his medical school yearbook in 1984. His deputy, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by a Stanford professor stemming from a 2004 incident at the Democratic National Convention. Wednesday, the state’s third-highest ranking official, Attorney General Mark Herring, admitted to wearing blackface to a fraternity party in 1980.

So, what do the state’s Republicans make of all this?

“Herring called for Northam to resign for the same offense, he can do no less,” he said. “Herring’s pandering and sniveling listing of his ‘service’ to Virginia’s black community while in office is a transparent and craven attempt to be treated differently from the very Governor he called on to resign for the exact same behavior.”

“Furthermore, I cannot believe that even a young adult in 1980 would think blackface was an acceptable thing to do in Virginia?!” he continued. “Shocking and outrageous.”

Former U.S. Senate and gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart, constantly harangued as “racist” by the mainstream press despite never doing anything nearly as offensive as dressing in blackface, noted the hypocrisy.

Stewart shared this statement:

“For the last three years, far left liberals here in Virginia, in the national media, and across this nation have been calling everyone who supports Donald Trump’s America First policies racists.

By now it’s obvious they were more keen on hiding their own issues with race and vilifying anyone they had to, including my opponent Ed Gillespie, in order to win.

Virginia Democrats are racists and rapists.

Their loud cries to try to divide Americans have certainly worked, but after this week, I am actually hopeful Americans will see beyond all the noise and begin to get back to working together to improve the lives of all Americans.”
