Think I jinxed poor Governor Northam. As did many in this area I voted for his more progressive opponent, a local hero Tom Perriello but alas, the southern accented more good ol boy-ish Northam, a former Republican, won. Yet today, as a result of an extreme right wing ratf*cking and an often bot-driven/magnified social media blitz, that dude is teetering on the precipice of political character assassination. He grew up in the casual racism of America, that existed then and of course exists now but for Democrats and progressives any vestige of such is disqualifying. For Republicans, not a bug but a feature, of course. Look at what is in the Whitesonly House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
