Three weeks ago, it seemed like things could not get worse for the Virginia Democrats. They were attempting to pass a controversial abortion bill, that was facing severe opposition from Conservatives and even a fair amount of Moderates in the Commonwealth. This bill was always a long shot, as it would reduce oversight on second and third-semester abortions and scrap a previous requirement for a 24 hour waiting period before getting an abortion. In addition, Governor Northam made things far worse in this case by appearing to endorse infanticide on a public radio show. So it didn’t seem like things could get worse for the Virginia Democratic political establishment. Then, it came out that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam participated in Blackface while a 25-year-old student at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
