BREAKING: Exclusive: Northam Announces Decision on Resignation to Staff
According to several news outlets, a source has revealed that embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) will not resign despite pressure from his own party after it was revealed that Northam’s medical school yearbook page contained a disturbing “racist” photo.
Talking Points Memo reports Northam “told staff he definitely won’t resign on Friday,” citing “a source familiar with the meeting.”
The Asspciated Press says the source is “Senior official in Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s administration.”
The controversial photo sprang up a week ago. In the picture, a person in blackface is seen standing next to a person in a Ku Klux Klan robe. Northam said he is not one of the people featured in the costumes, however he faced immediate calls to resign from some Republicans and many powerful Democrats.
Northam did admit to dressing in blackface while doing a Michael Jackson impression.
