(FOX NEWS) – Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam apologized Friday for appearing in a “racist and offensive” photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page that showed one man dressed in blackface and another in a KKK robe.
Northam – who has been under fire this week for comments made about a third-trimester abortion bill in his state – admitted to being one of the people in the photo, though it’s not clear which costume he is wearing.
“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive,” Northam said in a statement.
He added, “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.”

Remember when Democrats tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh over a yearbook page?
Why are they silent when Virginia Governor Ralph Northam—who is an advocate for post-birth abortion—has a yearbook page with a Klansman and a white man in blackface?
