Virginia Democrats decline to call on Fairfax, Herring to resign

Democrats from Virginia declined to call on Lt Gov. Justin Fairfax or Attorney General Mark Herring to resign on Thursday in their first comments about the scandals facing two top lawmakers in the commonwealth.

“We will continue in dialogue with one another and our constituents in the coming days, and evaluate additional information as it comes to light," said Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, and the rest of the Democratic congressional delegation from Virginia.

Warner and Kaine — along with other lawmakers from the state — reiterated their call for Gov. Ralph Northam to resign.

Earlier Thursday, in a lengthy statement, the Legislative Black Caucus reiterated its call for Northam to step down but emphasized it is treating the scandals facing all three of the state’s top lawmakers individually. Other Democrats — including the House Democrats — quickly followed their lead, issuing statements of their own hours later.

Look like the firing squad is starting to form a circle.

I hope Coonman limps into next year and runs again. Be fun to see him beaten.

He is the new leader of the Dixiecrats!   
What was their slogan again?
