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?
Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli told Big League Politics the scandal was “shocking and outrageous”
“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.”

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe
The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.
The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.
Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.
There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.
This is the moment

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.
Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.
MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
