Word 'racist' spray painted outside Virginia state house amid calls for Gov. Northam's resignation

Outside of the Virginia state house you can see the writing on the wall -- or sidewalk regarding a scandal involving Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. The word "racist" was found spray painted on the street early Monday.

Calls for Northam's resignation have continued to grow after his medical school yearbook page was made public, showing a person in blackface and a person in a Ku Klux Klan outfit.

The scandal threatens to cripple Northam's ability to govern. He has lost the support of virtually all of the state's Democratic establishment. Top Republicans in the Virginia General Assembly also urged Northam to step down, as did many declared and potential Democratic presidential candidates.

Northam apologized on Friday for appearing in the photograph on his yearbook page. He did not say which costume he was wearing, but said he was "deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo." On Saturday, though, the governor reversed course and said the picture "is definitely not me."
