KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Mr. Northam admitted February 2 of darkening his face to portray Michael Jackson during a 1984 dance contest only after a photo surfaced on his medical school yearbook page showing one man wearing blackface and the other wearing a KKK costume.

Northam at first admitted he was in the picture, then denied it a day later, but acknowledged he wore blackface to look like Michael Jackson for a dance contest in 1984.

A second woman has accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault, prompting more calls for the resignation of a Virginia state official. As a doctor, he said there's "no better person to do that".

In spite of calls from him to be 86'd from the political landscape, in his interview with King, which will air on CBS This Morning on Monday- Northam reiterates that he has no plans to resign. Fairfax did not deny he had an encounter with Tyson, but said it was consensual and the accusation was an attempt to smear him when he was poised to become governor of Virginia. Shortly thereafter Northam made a gaffe when he bragged about the state's 400 year history and King reminded him not to forget that part of that history included spreading slavery to the future United States.

During his seclusion this week, in which he used tunnels to shuttle between the mansion and his office in a building nearby, Northam said he had "painful" conversations with black lawmakers who continue to call for his resignation.

"I know that sometimes", Whitehead argued, "it's a case of 'I'm supposed to respond like this.' And 'this is what's expected of me.'" The blackface controversy has exploded into a full blown crisis for Northam's Democratic Party after it emerged his deputy Justin Fairfax had been accused by two women of sexual misconduct, likely ruling him out of contention should his boss bow to calls to step down. While Northam said he won't resign in the wake of the scandal, if a scandal plaguing another person in Virginia's government proves to be true, he said Fairfax will have to resign. He also repeated his contention that he is not the one pictured on his yearbook page in blackface. He has served Virginia well and he and I and (Fairfax), all three of us have fought for equality.

In an earlier interview with the Washington Post Mr Northam promised to set up race sensitivity training for state employees, and "take a harder line" on Confederate statues in public places in the state.

I say again without reservation: I did not sexually assault or rape Meredith Watson, Vanessa Tyson or anyone else. "And that's why I'm not going anywhere".

Emery said: 'He wanted to stay and work with us. "I hope he will continue, he is improving every day with us. For us as well, away games have been a challenge and each match is a new challenge".

If an impeachment hearing does occur, though, an attorney for one of Fairfax's accusers says her client is willing to testify that Fairfax raped her while they were college students in 2000.

Gregory Howard, interim dean of theology at Richmond's historically black Virginia Union University, says there's still another point not to miss when thinking about the apologies offered by Northam and Herring.

King also asked if the state's attorney general, Mark Herring, should resign after he too admitted to rocking a blackface costume.

In his comments to CBS, Northam stopped short of joining the growing chorus of leading Democrats saying that Fairfax needs to quit his post.

Although the Democratic Party has taken nearly a zero-tolerance approach to misconduct among its members in this #MeToo era, a housecleaning in Virginia could be costly to them: If all three Democrats resigned, Republican House Speaker Kirk Cox would become governor.

"I really believed in him", said Siakam, a 28-year-old student.

"At this time, Ms. Watson is reluctantly coming forward out of a strong sense of civic duty and her belief that those seeking or serving in public office should be of the highest character", Smith said, according to the written statement.
