There is no clear succession plan should the state’s lieutenant governor leave office amid allegations of sexual assault.
The state’s most powerful officials have admitted to, or been accused of, personal misconduct. President Trump tweeted that the missteps would deliver Virginia to him in 2020.
Attorney General Mark Herring, like Gov. Ralph Northam, said he dressed in blackface years ago. And a woman came forward to describe being sexually assaulted by the lieutenant governor.
