so much for democracy.
The virginia house is tied in more ways than one.

Tied Virginia House race to be decided by drawing name out of a bowl

democrats and republicans have the same number of seats, with one seat, the deciding seat, yet to be decided.
That deciding seat is tied after a recount, and will be decided by drawing names out of a bowl.
Whichsoever party wins the draw will win that seat and control the house

april 13 was jefferson's birthday
Thomas Jefferson Statue Vandalized on Founding Father’s Birthday
the haters painted "Racist + Rapist" on it
A few months back, Black Lives Matter hung a banner saying "Fuck White Supremacy" on the same statue

Jefferson is one of the greats. I reread a Jefferson quote just yesterday, the one where he thought central banks were even worse than standing armies.
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies," Jefferson wrote. " If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around(these banks) will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
"The issuing power of currency shall be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
Jefferson was right. America doesn't need a central bank any more than it needs to spend $700B a year on a standing army.

Another great quote (this one is Ted Cruz's favorite, and comes from the draft of the Kentucky Resolutions)
In questions of powers, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's (D) 1984 medical school (Eastern Virginia Medical School) yearbook features several pictures under Northam's name, including a picture of two individuals wearing blackface and KKK robes - one of whom is presumably Northam

the Governor's own party has thrown him off the back of the bus
Hours after the photo emerged, Northam faced calls to resign from the NAACP, at least four 2020 Democratic hopefuls for president, Planned Parenthood and the Virginia GOP.
(snip)
CBS News uncovered a page from Northam's yearbook at the Virginia Military Institute which had nicknames listed underneath his name. One of them was "Coonman," a racial slur.
A reporter from CBS News affiliate News 3, Brendan Ponton, went to the Eastern Virginia Medical School library in Norfolk Friday afternoon and found the page on which the photo appears.
Several political figures have called on Northam to step down, including NAACP President Derrick Johnson and 2020 presidential candidates Cory Booker, Julián Castro, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand.
Northam's predecessor, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, tweeted "it's Ralph to step down, and for the Commonwealth to move forward."
Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, the vice chair of the Democratic Governors Association who is set to take over in 2020, called on Northam to resign Friday night on MSNBC.

just how hard is it to condemn a white supremacist?





For the record, Governor Northram's behavior was inexcusable, and he should resign.

so the governor is a white supremacist (and I notice that no one here save me has condemned him. just how hard is it to condemn a white supremacist?)

If the governor resigns, the lieutenant governor would take his place. That was too much for  a woman named Vanessa Tyson,  a fellow at Stanford University, who claims that the current lieutenant-governor  sexually assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention when he was a staffer for John Kerry. Presumably she too is a democrat if she was attending the 2004 Convention
(edit: the allegation is that the lieutenant governor forced her to perform oral sex on him)

In case you're wondering, if the governor and lieutenant governor both resign, the next in line in Virginia is the Attorney-General, Mark Herring a Democrat.
After him comes the Speaker of the House of Delegates, and after that, the House of Delegates picks someone

Just little tidbits dropped by right wing web sites. In this case, not even linked to... The irony is that the people involved would want nothing more than getting back to the proper order of things as of ca 1850. Which is not to say that Northam isn't an idiot.

One of those "right wing web sites" was the Washington Post, which was the site that revealed the details of the Lieutenant Governor's alleged sexual assault on the Stanford fellow. The WaPo had had that story since at least 2017 and had chosen to sit on it
Va. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax denies sex assault allegation from 2004
In the WaPo link, the WaPo expose the Lieutenant Governor as a liar as well as an alleged oral rapist. After initial reorts surfaced, the Lieutenant Governor's spokesperson issued a statement claiming that the reason the WaPo had not run with the story at the time of the 2017 election  was that the WaPo had at that time found “significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations,"
“The Post carefully investigated the claim for several months. After being presented with the facts consistent with the Lt. Governor’s denial of the allegation, the absence of any evidence corroborating the allegation, and significant red flags and inconsistencies with the allegations, the Post made the considered decision not to publish the story.”
The WaPo say that the Lieutenant Governor's spokesperson's statement is untrue and they found no such "red flags" or "inconsistencies," (from the WaPo link above)
Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present. The Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version. The Post did not find “significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations,” as the Fairfax statement incorrectly said.
(snip)
The Post, in phone calls to people who knew Fairfax from college, law school and through political circles, found no similar complaints of sexual misconduct against him. Without that, or the ability to corroborate the woman’s account — in part because she had not told anyone what happened — The Post did not run a story.
none of that stopped them running uncorroborated 30-year-old allegations against Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race
