Governor in 'clearly racist' photo; vows to serve out term amid calls for resignation

Governor in 'clearly racist' photo; vows to serve out term amid calls for resignation | 01 Feb 2019 | A photo from Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook shows him and another person in racist costumes -- one wearing blackface and one a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, though it was not clear which person was the future governor. Hours after the 35-year-old photo came to light Friday, Northam apologized for his decision to appear in it. Elected officials and activist groups from across the political spectrum called for him to resign. But in a video posted to Twitter Friday evening, Northam said he had spent the past year "fighting for a Virginia that works better for all people" and he would continue to do so throughout the rest of his term, which ends in January 2022.
