Rep. Meeks Calls for Northam’s Resignation
Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Gregory W. Meeks issued the following statement regarding Governor Northam, calling for his resignation:
“It has become abundantly clear that Governor Northam‘s press conference and conflicting explanation has failed to settle this matter and restore faith in his leadership. So long as he remains Governor, Governor of a state that once elected the first black Governor in our United States, there will continue to be a lingering shadow over that office.
“Not just Virginians, but our nation as a whole would be better harmonized by Northam stepping down from his position, and allowing the wound caused by those photographs to heal.”
