By Daily Wire. A photo emerged on Friday that appears to show Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam appearing in a photograph that shows someone dressed up in a KKK hood and in blackface.
I’m at EVMS in Norfolk, Virginia (Gov. Ralph Northam graduated here). These are photos from the 1984 yearbook, including @GovernorVA Ralph Northam’s page, in a yearbook provided by the library. I’ve asked the governor’s office for comment.

“On Wednesday, in a shocking revelation about the nature of the pro-abortion Democratic Party, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a supposed moderate, endorsed the notion that a woman should be able to let an infant, born alive, die on the table if she decided she did not want the child,” The Daily Wire reported.
Northam made the remarks during an interview with WTOP’s “Ask The Governor.” Northam stated:
This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved. When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of the mother, with the consent of physicians, more than one physician by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus which is non-viable. So in this particular example, if the mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if this is what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and the mother.

Leading Democrats call for Gov. Northam to resign over racist yearbook photo
By The Blaze. Top Democratic leaders are calling for the governor of Virginia to resign after a yearbook photo resurfaced showing him in a racist photo.
Among those calling for his resignation were presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who tweeted, “Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government.”
Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.

It doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat. This behavior was racist and unconscionable. Governor Northam should resign.

If @RalphNortham is one of the two people pictured in the highly disturbing, horrific photo wearing either blackface or a KKK hood – or if he selected or approved of its use on his yearbook page — he should immediately resign. There are no excuses for such a racist display.

Northam released a statement on Friday admitting that the photo was authentic, but he did not disclose whether he was the man dressed as a KKK member or the man wearing blackface.
“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive,” he said in the statement.
“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” he added. (Read more from “Leading Democrats call for Gov. Northam to resign over racist yearbook photo” HERE)
