Virginia's Top 3 Elected Officials Engulfed in Scandal

But the senator was more guarded on Fairfax, who has denied allegations by a California professor, Vanessa C. Tyson, that he sexually assaulted her. But in his statement, he said nothing about the existence of a photo.

While both sides are now being hit, the controversy kicked off last week when Democrats called for the resignation of Gov. Ralph Northam over a racist photograph featured on his personal page in his 1984 medical school yearbook. Indeed, Tyson hired Katz for the objective of drawing that parallel - and that's not meant cynically, it just makes sense for someone trying to lodge a complaint like this to align themselves with attorneys who've already shown credibility in that arena.

Mr Herring would be next in line to be governor after Mr Fairfax.

PPFA's new president, Dr. Leana Wen, said in a statement: "Governor Northam is also Dr. Northam. I am a proud Democrat".

When asked whether Fairfax should resign, Harris stopped short of saying he should.

"You have to take these allegations seriously, so they can be investigated, and that's why we want to talk about believing survivors", she said.

She first went to the Washington Post with her story after he was elected in late 2017 - unnamed aides told CNN that Scott learned of her involvement in the Fairfax allegation because she offered him as a character witness for the report - but the story was ultimately spiked when the paper said it couldn't corroborate either side.

Despite Democrats' professed commitment to rooting out bigotry and intolerance, Northam's party might be motivated to rally behind him to avoid the prospect of Republicans suddenly assuming the governorship.

On Wednesday, though, Herring confessed that he and two friends dressed up to look like rappers, admitting: "It sounds ridiculous even now writing it".

The third person in the line of Virginia governor succession would be Speaker of the House of Delegates Kirk Cox, a Republican that represents Virginia's 66th District. "But it doesn't change the fact that Northam needs to resign".

"That conduct clearly shows that, as a young man, I had a callous and inexcusable lack of awareness and insensitivity to the pain my behaviour could inflict on others", he said.
In Northam's response to the picture, he admitted he had painted his face with shoe polish during an ill-conceived Michael Jackson impersonation.

But he also said: "This conduct is in no way reflective of the man I have become in the almost 40 years since".

Although Herring says he takes responsibility for his actions, he also stated his "conduct is in no way reflective of the man I have become in the almost 40 years since".

"Mr Herring came down hard on Mr Northam when the yearbook photo surfaced, condemning it as "indefensible", profoundly offensive", and "shocking and deeply disappointing".
