Governor Ralph Northam to resign reaching a crescendo despite his claims that he's not either of the people featured on his own med school yearbook page dressed in black face in KKK garb. I was appalled that they appeared on my page. But I believe then. And now that I am not either of the people in that photo yesterday was pathetic spectacle by governor on north of the previous governor of Jinnah. Also, a democrat thing. Northam has to go. But once they picture where the black face and the clansman came out. There is no way you can continue to be the governor of the Commonwealth Virginia. More than a dozen other prominent leaders from his own party, adamantly agree. House majority leader Nancy Pelosi saying he should do the right thing north press conference intended to reverse his initial admission that he was in the photo only added to the chaos and confusion when he said he used black face on a separate occasion that same year. I did participate in a dance contest in San Antonio in which I darkened my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume is. Because my memory of that episode is so vivid that I truly do not believe I'm in the picture in my yearbook in this bizarre moment where he recalled his costume the night. He dressed is Michael Jackson also drawing criticism. I had the shoes I had a glove, and I used us a little bit of shoe polish to put under my own, my cheeks and. The reason I used a very little bit is because I don't know if anybody's ever tried that, but you cannot get shoe polish off his notion that you can't get polish off your face easily. Yeah. Just to me that was the first time that he had been tried black face for now. The governor says he will stay in office.
