Virginia AG Admits He Wore Blackface at College Party

Virginia AG Admits He Wore Blackface at College PartyVirginia attorney general Mark Herring, who would assume the governorship should Governor Ralph Northam and Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax resign due to their own scandals, admitted Wednesday that he wore blackface at a college party in 1980. “In 1980, when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college, some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers we listened to at the time, like Kurtis Blow and perform a song,” Herring wrote in a statement. Herring’s revelation is the latest in a string of scandals that have embroiled Virginia Democrats in recent days.
