As the pressure mounts on Fairfax to resign, here's one suggestion

If he feels he must resign, he should agree to do so only on one condition: Northam publicly agrees to appoint an African-American woman Lt. Governor approved by the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus in his place.

I would push for him to agree to both appoint an black female Lt. Governor and then resign himself, but that would make too much sense.

1. If Herring, Northam, and Fairfax resign there is a way the Dems keep the governor's mansion.

It has to do with the order.

2. Yes

All based on the Governor's appointment power.

3. It would be best to just rip the scab off but we both know they likely won't all resign.

4. Fairfax doesn't have much bargaining power.

5. That is not an enforceable condition

 

There is no such thing as a conditional resignation.

7. It's not legally enforceable, but it's politically enforceable
