Governor Northam and Lt. Fairfax are both beset by scandals.
And the hits keep coming. It seems as if the state of

of most dysfunctional executives in the United States.
By now, I’m sure that most of us have heard the saga of Governor Ralph Northam and his denial, non-denial of certain costume wearing activities in college that ended up in a yearbook. While Northam and his team tried to cover the tracks from that, and amid calls for his resignation, his lieutenant governor was hit with allegations of his own.
Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax was accused of sexually
assaulting a woman in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention. Now, the
story has not been corroborated and there remains scant evidence that verifies

and burn of the top Democrats in Virginia, a reliably blue state in recent
years. However this plays out, it’ll be a wild ride to the finish.
