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.

Biden White House Makes YouTube Upload of Inaugural Speech ‘Unlisted’ After Being Flooded With Dislikes
The Inaugural Address wasn’t well received.
Joe Biden’s White House staff privatized an upload of his inaugural address from the White House YouTube page, after the video was rationed with a wave of dislikes.
As of late Wednesday night, Biden’s Inaugural Address has more than 17,000 dislikes, and less than 4,000 likes. Sensing that the public wasn’t responding positively, the Biden administration made the video “unlisted” some time after its initial streaming.
In a legally questionable development, the Biden White House staff have also disabled comments on the Inaugural Address. Court rulings previously forced the Trump administration to unblock fanatic liberal reply guys on Twitter, with judges ruling that they had the right to engage with the President on the platform.
The inaugural address is accessible here.
The poor reaction may have come in part from the existing YouTube subscriber demographic of the White House channel, which was primarily composed of Trump supporters. Other uploads of Biden’s Inaugural Address on the YouTube channels of mainstream media networks have a more favorable like-to-dislike ratio.
The takedown of the video could ultimately be challenged under a 2018 court ruling establishing presidential social media accounts as public forums, with comments enabled. Biden will have to face criticism- even on his official internet presence- as President.
