EDIT. Right here in this very forum (which I'd wager is mostly Republican as the liberals are at the other forum) there's a 28/20 on whether Northam should resign or not. It should be 48-0.
IMO its not approval of his racisim, its the believe that someone isn't defined by their actions 30 years ago and COULD change. I voted no because I want his job to be based on his actions in the present. If he is still a racist then YES he should be gone, but before this photo appeared I have not heard any democrat calling him racist.
