One of those cries for the Governor's resignation came from the Virginia Branch of the League of Women Voters (LWV), but they are staying quiet on other issues.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages people to register and vote every year.

A week prior, the group spoke out in favor of Governor Northam's resignation.

The state branch president said the group will not comment anytime soon on the possible resignations of Mark Herring or Justin Fairfax.

“Now we're being pressured to ask for resignations for all three of elected executive branch people. We have decided that we need to step back a little bit and not make any statements for a while until we actually think about the ramifications,” said LWV Virginia Branch President Sue Lewis.

The pressure to release the initial statement about Northam came from the national level, according to Lewis.

Lewis said removing all three officials would result in turning the state government over to the legislature.
