"I'm not going anywhere": Ralph Northam strikes defiant pose to Gayle King

Northam has pledged to remain in office despite public pressure.

Ralph Northam, who is at the center of a scandal involving racist photos in his 1984 medical school yearbook, was rebuked by CBS anchor Gayle King on slavery. Signaling plans to resume business as usual, he also announced more than a dozen state board appointments.

On Wednesday, Vanessa Tyson came forward to recount Mr Fairfax's alleged assault in disturbing detail through a statement issued by her lawyers.

Watson's legal team released an email exchange between her and a former Duke classmate from October 2016, in which Watson responds to an invitation to a fundraiser for Fairfax by saying, "Justin raped me in college and I don't want to hear anything about him".

The statement said it was a "premeditated and aggressive" assault and that while Watson and Fairfax had been social friends, they were never involved romantically. "To do so, would violate any principles I have of faith that says a person can not change", he told AFP. Fairfax has denied the allegations.

Also on CBS, Representative Don Beyer called Northam's initial admission, and then denials, that he was in a racist photo "very bizarre" and said the governor had lost too much credibility to stay in office. Durham police spokesman Wil Glenn also said he couldn't find a report in the department's system on the 2000 allegation.

The majority of African Americans in Virginia due not believe that their embattled Democratic Governor Ralph Northam should step down, according to a new poll. Booker cited "multiple detailed allegations" that he found "deeply troubling".

None of this is excusing the larger issue: That companies are doing this without clearly disclosing it to their customers. Data is ridiculously important, and sometimes a company's vision for access is quite different than another's.

The dean of Virginia's Democratic congressional delegation requested immediate investigations of the women's allegations against Fairfax.

Mr. Samirah, a dentist, is running against Republican Greg Nelson and independent candidate Connie Haines Hutchinson in what will be the Democrats' first test since the scandals began to pile up. "And these accusations are very, very serious", he said. And a Democratic member of the state House, Del.

Calls for Fairfax to step aside have come from state House and Senate Democrats, the Legislative Black Caucus, former Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe, Virginia's two USA senators - Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, also both Democrats - and several potential Democratic presidential hopefuls. In his statement on Saturday, he acknowledges both interactions with the women, but says both instances were consensual.

A photograph in the 1984 yearbook shows a person in blackface and another in Ku Klux Klan robes. Northam said in a press conference a week ago, though, that he'd once darkened his skin to take part in a Michael Jackson dance competition.

The possibility of all three top leaders of Virginia's executive branch having to resign raised the prospect of Democrats losing the governorship to the Republican speaker of the state House of Delegates, who is next in the line of succession.

Herring would become governor if both Northam and Fairfax resigned.

"He's been a good governor, and he's been good, as far as I know, to black people", Butler said.
