Not Excusing Northam, but I Have A Question [View all]

Is there any way a Dem with a tainted history can absolve him/herself? In your opinion, what does it take? What does it look like?

For example, suppose Northam had apologized for his past racist behavior before running. Would that have made a difference? From what some here at DU are posting, it seems like this would have made all the difference in the world. And that brings up another question. Does a candidate need to fully disclose every occurrence of racist/homophobic/misogynist behavior, or does a single, blanket statement cover it?
