Accuser of Lt. Gov. willing to testify to Virginia lawmakers

Accuser of Lt. Gov. willing to testify to Virginia lawmakers

Northam also added to CBS that the first time he had seen the photo was after it had surfaced on February 1.

But wait, Northam isn't done prattling on: "Virginia needs someone that can heal". The scandals have eroded voters' faith in the party to put forward good candidates, and any perceived racial disparities in consequences for the three officials may cause further harm, he said. From there Northam claimed that because he has "strength", "courage" and "a moral compass", he was "not going anywhere".

"It is obvious that a vicious and coordinated smear campaign is being orchestrated against me", Fairfax said. "And I also had a number of friends and classmates from medical school that called and said, 'Ralph that is not you" and that was comforting as well".

GAYLE KING (CBS THIS MORNING/CBS THIS MORNING Co-Host/@GayleKing): I know this has been a very hard week for you in the state of Virginia.

"Also known as slavery", she said.

Northam, in the CBS interview, said the accusations against Fairfax "are very, very serious".

"And the main point that this person told me is that at the end of the day, the white person - just as I was the white person that dressed up as an African-American dancer - at the end of the day we can take that makeup off and go back to being white", but a black person continues to live in that skin and all that it represents.

She said in a phone interview that Northam's "indentured servant" remark is "shocking in light of his current political difficulties". Alison Dagnes, a political science professor at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, says they've got the benefit of deep political polarization, the growth of partisan media - and now the model of President Trump, who has often survived his scandals simply by riding out the news cycle.

Yet others argued that despite any legal shenanigans, the first Africans couldn't be called anything but slaves, because they were traded as commodities.

The NAACP's position is for Northam to resign immediately, a stance shared by the state assembly's powerful Black Caucus.

The embattled lieutenant governor of Virginia was accused by two women of sexual assault, including rape by one of the women.

"Every now and again, we slip up, we fall, and we have a responsibility to dust ourselves off and seek for full healing and reconciliation - but reconciliation that is based upon the one who has been offended, not the offender", Howard explains.

Northam, who is starting to appear publicly again after spending almost a week in seclusion, addressed the scandals facing his fellow elected officials.

GOVERNOR RALPH NORTHAM (CBS THIS MORNING/D-Virginia/@GovernorVA): Well, it has been a hard week.

A copy of the resolution, obtained by CNN, reads, "the House of Delegates believes all allegations of sexual assault must be taken with the utmost seriousness", and describes the allegations made by the two women as "credible in nature".

KING: For many of us watching, it looked like you were about to actually demonstrate the moonwalk.

Fairfax, 39, has said his encounter with a woman who accused him of forcing himself on her sexually in Boston in 2004 was entirely consensual. Of Herring, he said that "just like me, he has grown". "He has served Virginia well and he and I and Justin, all three of us have fought for equality". Calls for Fairfax to step aside have come from many people, including several potential Democratic presidential hopefuls. The poll found 58 percent of African-Americans did not want Northam to resign, supported his performance as governor and accepted his apology.

Another possibility: Fairfax simply hangs on as he disputes the allegations.

Fairfax has faced numerous resignation calls since Watson levied her allegation Friday. "But I'm also standing up for due process".
