It shows Dan is a dumbass? Because it sounds like he did through responsible thing if he couldn't verify it.

He could have given it to a real journalist to verify. 

 

Also,

(Oct 2018 was almost a year after the gov election in Virginia, but still could have been used to try divide Democrats on the eve of the midterms where northam was stumping for house candidates)

I said to my wife last night his next play is going to be to deny he is even in the photo.

If folks want him gone and enough pressure was placed on him. He would be gone.

Nobody can force him to re-sign, but almost everyone has called on him to do so.

Nah, if I were him I'd pressure him in private (at first) then publicly to resign. Fairfax being governor for 5+ consecutive years is what he's gunning for, or at least that's the smart play.

OK, that is the way to go!

Northam should obviously resign, although I suppose I kind of understand how someone in his situation could think they could find a way out of this given that like three months ago we all saw Brett Kavanaugh successfully maneuver around a credible sexual assault accusation by holding up a bunch of old calendars and yelling a lot.

He must have confirmed through the night that the other person in the photo is now deceased and cannot show up on the news saying it was him. Also probably verified that the actual photographer is dead as well. This is the only thing that explains him going full retard right now.

Thinking on it, he probably won't put too much pressure on him directly, but have others in the black community push northam. That way he's not alienating northam supporters. That's probably the real best course of action.

 

Obviously (if there is) a public statement from Fairfax, it would be how he's troubled/disturbed by the racist images, this isn't the man I know and have worked with, and (this is the risky part) not wanting to rush to judgement, call for a full investigation because something like this is so out of character with the man I know. Something like that. Calling for his head publicly this quickly runs the risk of his popularity floundering, as he has the most to gain by northam resigning. It's a narrow, difficult path now that northam isn't backing down  immediately.

You have left out the part that explains politicians only give a shit about attaining more power and Fairfax is already salivating at the thought of this guy resigning. He is planning his future campaign already.

Which is why he shouldn't call for northams head, but push others to get him to resign. That way he keeps a layer between himself and asking the governor to resign, keeping the support of state Dems who still like northam, so when he runs in his own right in 2021 he doesn't need to win back supporters he previously alienated.

Ah yes, the well known unwritten rule that you get a mulligan for your first blackface incident. Good lord, just resign.
