Allegations mount as VA Dems call on Lt Gov to resign

But since the Northam news broke, she said the staff for the university's student paper, The Cavalier Daily, had been "going through UVA's old yearbooks and trying to find these pictures to call themselves out for past racism".

Virginia "needs someone who is strong who has empathy, who has courage and who has a moral compass", Northam told CBS News on Sunday, in his first televised interview since the scandal broke.

A Washington Post/Schar School Poll found they were deadlocked as to whether Mr Northam should resign.

"Yes. And while we have made a lot of progress in Virginia, slavery has ended".

"Yes, yes", Northam replied, prompting exasperation from some commentators on social media. Until a week ago, when the accusations had not yet been leveled against him, it appeared that he might become governor if Northam, who is white, acceded to wide demands from Republicans and Democrats alike that he resign. "SIGH", tweeted Democratic operative Symone Sanders.

In an attempt to remark on the history of slavery in Virginia, Gov. Northam referred to Africans kidnapped, tortured, and forced against their will to work as "indentured servants" which caused King to correct him for the gaffe and inform the doctor that would be referred to as "slavery". "Mr. Fairfax then used this prior assault against Ms. Watson, as he explained to her during the only encounter she had with him after the rape".

Northam has now also said he can't be man in blackface because he's left handed and both people are holding beers in their right, according to reports.

During his seclusion this week, in which he used tunnels to shuttle between the mansion and his office in a building nearby, Northam said he had "painful" conversations with black lawmakers who continue to call for his resignation. Fairfax has denied all accusations and is facing calls from his own party to step down as the state's second-highest elected official.

Within 72-Hours, Apex Legends Sees 10M Unique Players & Over 1M Concurrent
The good news is that this doesn't look to be a widespread issue that is causing games like Apex Legends to stop working entirely. Another reason we think that the game won't get a single player campaign anytime soon is that the game is primarily free to play.


Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates Patrick Hope said Friday that he will introduce articles of impeachment if Fairfax doesn't announce his resignation by Monday.

When asked Saturday night which basketball player Watson was referencing, Erin Friedlander of Evergreen Partners-the group issuing the statement on behalf of Watson-said the firm was "only providing the information contained in our statements at this time".

He told Gayle King on Face the Nation that: "Yes, I have thought about resigning".

Northam's assertion defies the condemnations issued recently by prominent Virginian politicians on both sides of the aisle - many of whom have also called on Fairfax, who is black, to step down for very different reasons. "If I had it to do over again, I would step back and take a deep breath".

"I'm not sure that it's true or not, but there's an allegation". I ask that all three of us be respected during this process. They also noted she would be able to provide "at least two witnesses whom Ms. Watson told of the assault the day after Fairfax raped her".

President Donald Trump weighed in Sunday morning, tweeting "African Americans are very angry at the double standard on full display in Virginia!"

Hughes, 54, thinks the governor should resign. Fairfax has vehemently denied the allegations. "And so we're ready to learn from our mistakes".

Almost 60 percent of African-Americans in Virginia want Gov. Ralph Northam to remain in office despite the recent scandal surrounding a racist photo on the Democrat's 1984 medical school yearbook page, according to a poll released Saturday.
