Easy going and Impartial
Ralph Northam was seen as an easy going man.
Infact, he once voted for a Republican party despite being in a Democratic party.

Northam was Supported by Former American President Barrack Obama in 2017
During the 2017 governorship elections, Former first black president of America supported Northam, urging people in Virginia to cast their vote for him.
“You know, Ralph believes that if we’re going to talk about history hen we should do it in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds, not in a way that divides,” Obama said. “We saw what happened in Charlottesville. But we also saw what happened after Charlottesville when the biggest gatherings of all rejected fear and rejected hate.”
The former president continued: “That’s how we rise. We don’t rise up by repeating the past. We rise up by learning from the past and by listening to each other and knowing that we’re all flawed.

Do you want Ralph Northam to resign as the Governor of Virginia despite his humanitarian services to the people and also Ralph Northam to resign because such a sin is too great to be forgiven?
Or he should still remain the governor since it happened in a very long time and he had apologize.
My take on whether Ralph Northam to resign:
I think this incident was such a long time. So my thought on if Ralph Northam to resign? My answer would be a big NO!
It’s being a very long time, calling Ralph Northam to resign changes nothing. He should be pardoned.
