Mark Berman of the Washington Post recaps:
- Virginia’s governor admitted he wore blackface.
- The Lt. Governor is facing a sexual assault allegation.
- The Attorney General says he too wore blackface.
- The House Speaker is next in line. He has that job because an election was tied and a name picked out of a bowl.
Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball: “Saying that anything in the annals of American political history is ‘unique’ or ‘unprecedented’ is dangerous, for the simple fact that the past is filled with so many oddities from which we can draw parallels. That said, we’re struggling to come up with something equivalent to what we’ve seen in Virginia over the past week.”
