The hypocrisy is simply overwhelming!

Attorney General Mark Herring demanded that Gov. Ralph Northam resign because Northam admitted to appearing in blackface, or worse, as a 25-year-old medical student. Now, Herring admits that he, too, appeared in blackface whilst in college. Is Herring going to look in the mirror and resign? I doubt it. What galling and unfathomable hypocrisy!

But folks, it’s even worse. Five years ago, these two same individuals (Herring and Northam) condemned Myrna’s and my relationship. They stated in their sanctimonious, holier-than-thou attitudes that I should resign from the House of Delegates while at the same time, they kept their dirty little secrets hidden … shame on them!

However, I’m not bitter, and I’m not angry. Five years on, Myrna and I thank God every day for our four little “blessings.” Our home is filled with laughter and love, and we are both happy and grateful. Myrna has graduated from college, and we’ve moved on. Importantly, and at the end of the day, we thank God for Kennedy, Chase, Bella and Maverick.

As stated above, we have no animosity for Herring and Northam. We sincerely wish them well and understand that there is value in redemption.
