This is from right-wing media BUT survivors don’t come forward w/ sexual assault allegations frivolously. Choosing to re-live trauma in public debate is not to be taken lightly. If Tyson chooses to come forward, we hope for a supportive space. 🧜🏻‍♀️💄🐝

Not sure if this is related; however, earlier this evening @CollectivePAC referenced racially motivated attacks from Northam’s camp. Is this foreshadowing of a response to allegations being made?

My interpretation is if Lt. Gov office is vacant when Governor leaves office then the Attorney General becomes Governor. That means Mark Herring is next in line.

If AG is ineligible, THEN it goes to Speaker of the House aka Kirk Cox who is the 1st Republican in the succession.

Continuing the drama... Dance card #3 in play after his #ProAbortion statement & the yearbook image surfacing. #RalphNortham now says he's not one of the people imaged in the costumed image in his yearbook. Now says he has no intention of resigning at this time.
#NorthamResign
2) 🤔Does it really make it better if #RalphNortham wasn't in the yearbook image & yet, he chose to use it as one of the images on his specific page? That, for me, would actually be a statement that appears 2be a direct #Racist political statement, orchestrated by him.
#Resign
3) #Coonman?
Really?
No certainly - NOT - him in the image & it wasn't his choice to add the image either; nor the nickname Coonman. These are in no way #Racist... #NorthamResign has no basis in fact.

Northam is scheduled to have a press conference at 2:30 ET today, he's said that he will NOT be resigning. He's acting like a member of the GOP, and that is the worst possible thing he could do. #NorthamResign #SaturdayThoughts

2-"Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia, facing intense pressure to resign from fellow Democrats after admitting that he posed for a photo in a racist costume as a medical student more than 30 years ago, was calling state Democrats on Saturday to say he did not think it was him in the
3-"picture and that he would not resign. Mr. Northam, who apologized on Friday night, was increasingly isolated, but in phone calls on Saturday morning he said he had no recollection of the yearbook image of two men, one in blackface and the other in Ku Klux Klan robes.

The @GovernorVA, @RalphNortham, has consistently shown a disregard for black lives as he has worked with @DominionEnergy to decimate black families in Union Hill, Buckingham County. The fact that he is apparently in either black face or a klan robe is of no surprise.
If your comment is going to be “people make mistakes”, then you probably shouldn’t comment, @kimgray4rva.
Considering that you stand with Helen Marie Taylor, one of the worst people in Richmond, someone who has spent her life defending racism, I don’t really care what you have to say, @kimgray4rva
