Racist Democrat Virginia governor Ralph Northam has admitted that he was in the medical school yearbook photo in which he was wearing either blackface or a Ku Klux Klan hood.
Now desperately losing power, and with the state party and national Democrat leaders against him, Northam is trying to claim that he’s not sure whether or not he was in the yearbook photo.
No dice, Ralph.
Northman admitted to being in the photo twice in his first response to Big League Politics’ publication of the photo. Northman stated (emphasis added):
“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive.
I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.
This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.
I recognize that it will take time and serious effort to heal the damage this conduct has caused. I am ready to do that important work. The first step is to offer my sincerest apology and to state my absolute commitment to living up to the expectations Virginians set for me when they elected me to be their governor.”
Northam’s statement ends
Here, Northam admitted to being in the photo yet again in his video address.
My fellow Virginians, earlier today I released a statement apologizing for behavior in my past that falls far short of the standard you set for me when you elected me to be your governor. I believe you deserve to hear directly from me. pic.twitter.com/1rSw1oxfrX
