Interview: EW Jackson Calls Handshake Snub 'Insulting'

Interview: EW Jackson Calls Handshake Snub 'Insulting'

Virginia Lieutenant Governor candidate Ralph Northam (D-VA) refused to shake hands with his Republican opponent, EW Jackson during an on-air appearance in Hampton Roads, VA last week. 

Jackson appeared on “Mornings on the Mall” on WMAL in Washington DC Monday morning and I asked him about the incident:  

It was insulting, but, on the other hand, I thought it was consistent with the way he behaves. Because, this spot he’s been running, saying that I believe that a child born with birth defects is born that way because of their parents’ sin is just a damnable, palpable, despicable lie. I don’t believe that. I never said anything like that. And it’s that kind of dishonesty that, to me, says this is not the kind of person that needs to be holding state-wide office. Not shaking my hand really just confirmed that. 

Ken Klukowski has a report detailing reaction from black civil rights leaders over the insulting snub.
