Northam tells top staff he won't resign: report
By Tal Axelrod - 02/08/19 04:25 PM EST

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) told his staff Friday he will not resign over a racist photo from his medical school yearbook or his admission he wore blackface for a dance competition in 1984, according to The Associated Press.

A senior official told the AP that Northam met with his Cabinet on Friday and said he intends to serve the rest of his term despite an avalanche of bipartisan calls for his resignation that have been building up for a week.

The pressure began to build against the Virginia governor last week after a local newspaper published a picture from his medical school yearbook showing a person wearing blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.

While Northam apologized Friday and said he was one of the people in the picture, he reversed course Saturday and said that he had concluded he was actually not in the photograph.

Northam has what my Italian mother used to say, "una facia tosta" (literally translated as a "hard face" -- in other words he is NERVY!
