Published

The Democratic Attorney General of Virginia, third in line to become Governor of the state, called on current Democratic Governor Ralph Northam to step down on Friday, after Big League Politics reported on Northam’s blackface/KKK photo.

“It is no longer possible for Governor Northam to lead our Commonwealth and it is time for him to step down,” he reportedly said.

Now, Herring has a blackface scandal of his own after he released a statement admitting that he dressed up as a rapper for a 1980 University of Virginia fraternity party.

Virginia Democrat attorney general Mark Herring wore blackface at age 19 at a college party, according to Herring’s own admission.

Herring, who is third in line for governor after racist Ralph Northam and accused sexual assaulter Justin Fairfax, blames the blackface on his youthful emulation of early rapper Kurtis Blow — reminiscent of Northam’s claim that he darkened his face to look like Michael Jackson.

Herring’s statement is the latest blow for Virginia Democrats, who are still trying to figure out how to get Ralph Northam out of office for his racist yearbook photo — which might not be politically possible now, considering the scandals engulfing his next two potential gubernatorial replacements.

The Lieutenant Governor of the state, Justin Fairfax, also a Democrat, is engulfed in a sexual assault scandal, also first reported by Big League Politics.

Fairfax denied the allegations publicly, saying that the pair had consensual sex. He was reportedly angered by the allegations, and reportedly said “f*ck that b*tch” in a private meeting.

None of the three have resigned from their posts.

Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates Kirk Cox, a Republican, is fourth in line to take over Governorship.

Alabama U.S. Senate Contender Tommy Tuberville Lied About Voting for Trump, According to 2016 Records

Tuberville is not telling the truth about being a long-time Trump backer.

Alabama U.S. Senate Contender Tommy Tuberville was not registered to vote in 2016 when he claimed to have voted for Donald Trump for President.

Journalist and political operative Ryan Girdusky shared the discovery over social media that Tuberville never voted for President Trump:

Girdusky noted that Tuberville did not vote in 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 either while he was living in Alabama and Florida:

Tuberville has been lying about his record on the campaign trail during a heated political race with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who hopes to reclaim the seat he once left to join the Trump Administration.

“Well, first of all – you know, on I’m going to support President Trump,” Tuberville told Fox & Friends. “I supported him from day one. I’m the only candidate in this race who supported him in this last election. I believe in him. He has a great work ethic. You know, the guy is a winner. And the things that he’s done – we need people to stand behind him – in the Senate, in Congress to help him get his agenda through.”

“But I want to help this state and Alabama,” he added. “You know, Alabama is going to grow. It’s going to really grow.”

Big League Politics has reported about Tuberville ducking Sessions throughout the campaign, avoiding any sort of a debate that could alert voters about his poor record:

As the Republican primary runoff for nomination for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, football coach Tommy Tuberville is doubling down on a strategy of refusing to debate former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, leaving serious questions about his immigration policy positions unanswered.

Tuberville hopes to cruise to an easy victory on the basis of support from Donald Trump, who remains incensed at Sessions over a feud related to his former Attorney General’s recusal from Robert Mueller’s witch hunt Russia investigation. But Sessions has emphasized that the feud- now in the past- can’t be all that comes under consideration for Alabama’s Republican voters.

Tuberville steadfastly refuses to clarify some of his troubling statements related to immigration policy, including stating that the United States needs 400,000 Indian visa workers to provide labor for America’s corporations. Tuberville continues to rebuff attempts from Sessions to organize a debate to discuss actual policy before the July 14th runoff election, which will determine who will go on to face Democrat Doug Jones in November.

Sessions reiterated that Tuberville refuses to participate in a debate in a tweet responding to President Trump’s latest criticism of him, pointing out that Tuberville’s GOPe sympathies render him a suspect so-called supporter of the President’s ‘MAGA’ agenda.

The Alabama U.S. Senate Republican run-off election between Tuberville and Sessions is scheduled to take place on July 14.
