VA AG Herring Resigns DAGA

As the nation continues to focus on Virginia, Attorney General Mark Herring stepped down from his position as co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association after admitting to wearing blackface at a college party in 1980 earlier today.

Herring will step down from his position as co-chair of DAGA immediately, after admitting to reporters that he wore blackface in 1980.

According to DAGA’s press release, quoting Executive Director Sean Rankin, “AG Herring offered to step aside as co-chair this morning and the committee accepted.” The organization pledges to “continue to support our Democratic Attorneys General in their ongoing work protecting civil rights, keeping our communities and families safe, and serving as the People’s Lawyers.”

This resignation comes after Herring admitted openly to wearing blackface while performing rap music at a college party.

Big League Politics reported earlier today:

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. Herring previously called for Northam to resign, stating, “It is no longer possible for Governor Northam to lead our Commonwealth and it is time for him to step down.”

At press time, DAGA has not removed Herring from its website, which notes “He is the first Democrat elected to serve as the state’s attorney general in almost a quarter century, and he’s bringing a modern approach to the job. His priorities for the people of Virginia include protecting vulnerable populations, supporting immigrant rights, combating drug abuse, helping small businesses, strengthening protections for crime victims, and increasing government accountability and transparency.”

Herring is not expected to step down from his position as the Attorney General for the state of Virginia at press time.

Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax

Published

A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.

Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.

According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.

But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.

Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.

Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.

“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.

Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.

In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.

“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.

America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.

A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
