Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America:
On Friday, the Governor of Virginia publicly confirmed that he appeared in a racist photo on his individual page in his 1984 medical school yearbook.
In 2017, we expressed profound concern about the some of the racist positions and actions that Ralph Northam's campaign adopted when he ran for Governor. Now, after his confirmation this evening of the photograph and his past actions, it’s clear that Ralph Northam has no business remaining Governor of Virginia.
Whether this happened yesterday or thirty-five years ago, the Democratic Party of 2019 has no place for people in positions of power with a history of these types of racist actions.
Thanks for taking action,
Charles Chamberlain, Chair
Democracy for America
