Praise the Lord, the racist Virginia governor is gone and the new good guy is in charge.

Governor Glenn Younkin was officially sworn in last week, but prior to Ralph Northam’s departure, he decided that he was going to issue one more pardon as a last act of corruption.

Northam pardoned former Virginia state senator Joe Morrissey who was charged with engaging in ѕexuаl acts with an underage girl. This happened back in 2014 when Morrissey was 57-years-old and his lover was only 17-years-old.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch,

Gov. Ralph Northam has pardoned Sen. Joe Morrissey, D-Richmond, for a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor related to his relationship with a 17-year-old law firm assistant who later became his wife.

Morrissey, then a delegate, was convicted in 2014. He and his wife, Myrna, are now raising four children.

Morrissey said he learned of the pardon on Thursday. Northam granted him what’s called a simple pardon.

“To say that I was extremely pleased with what the governor did would be, perhaps for me, the understatement of the 2022 General Assembly session,” he said.

“Most importantly, my wife is grateful,” he said.

And although their young children don’t understand a pardon yet, they’ll be grateful someday for the governor’s action, Morrissey said.

In comparison to Ralph Northam’s despicable actions, the new governor Glenn Youngkin has done a lot of good things already. In just his first couple of days, he signed 11 executive orders including banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory and declaring that parents of children in the school system have the right to determine what their children learn.

Thankfully, Northam is gone now and hopefully, the state can get back to the way it was, or even better than it was before Northam wrecked it.
