Statement from Metro DC DSA Steering Committee: Ralph Northam and Dick Saslaw Must Resign

“Governor Ralph Northam’s press conference this afternoon was repulsive. Northam has made it clear that he has a long history of racism, for which he feels little remorse. Metro DC DSA continues to stand in solidarity with our allies across Virginia in our call for Governor Northam to resign. We also demand that elected officials who have defended Northam &emdash; including Dick Saslaw, the Virginia Senate Democratic Minority Leader &emdash; resign immediately. Racism and those who excuse it must face the consequences for their disgusting actions.”
