Democrats won Virginia by 9 effing points God Damnit!!

They didn't just squeek by with the help of the electoral college.

The overwhelming majority of Virginia voters wanted, voted and worked their asses off for Democratic representation and policies.

Virginia is now supposed to just turn the fucking state over to Retrumplicans based on some incredibly stupid shit 4 decades ago...and so far...UNPROVEN claims of sexual assault?

If someone can tell me, because I'm not savvy on how the whole replacement process works, that these THREE Democrats can resign, and we still have them filled by Democrats, then I say they all should leave office tomorrow.

However, if you tell me that the 1 seat Retrumplican majority in the legislature gets to pick the replacements...then God damnit they need to fight.

Let's make a deal. Give Retrumplicans complete control of Virginia when that is NOT what the state's voters want, only when Donnie Short Fingers and Pence resign and make Speaker Pelosi president.

The Retrumplicans would bring out the military to try to stop that, but Dems need to give them Virginia.

Fuck that.

2. Order of succession in VA: Governor, Lt Gov, Att General, Speaker.

The speaker is R. If the attorney general resigns, the house of delegates appoints a new one.
If the Lt Gov resigns, the Gov can appoint a new one, but the house can demand a new election for one in November.

5. And he is only speaker because of racial gerrymandering

and a tie vote that went to the Retrumplicans due to his name being pulled out of a fish bowl.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that so far NO Retrumplican year book photos have come out. None of them went to VMI

Oh, wait, their senior leader was the editor of a yearbook that contained multiple racist and blackface photos.

Nevermind, that yearbook also went after Asians and Jews, so no problem, right?

I haven't seen quite the coverage of that or calls for his resignation.

We are not just talking about stupid stuff and accusations.

At some point we may want to have a discussion about overturning the overwhelming choice of the people of Virginia

I'm sure the Retrumplican that takes over will support fair legislative districts... and I'm sure the new Retrumplican attorney general will fight just as hard as Herring for voting rights.

Arggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!
