Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini also wore blackface, and he has yet to resign | Blogs
Last week, Florida Secretary of State Michael Ertel resigned from office after photos surfaced of him wearing blackface and mocking Hurricane Katrina survivors. This happened just a few days before photos of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam appeared showing him in blackface next to a guy in a Ku Klux Klan outfit in his medical school yearbook.
Obviously, Ertel did the right thing in the end, and Northam should resign immediately.
But while this past week’s headlines have absolutely skewered Ertel and Northam, Florida still has an elected official who wore blackface and has yet to resign.
Anthony Sabatini, a 30-year-old Florida state representative and former city commissioner, also has a damning blackface photo on his record. While a sophomore at Eustis High School, the current Howey-in-the-Hills Republican dressed up as one of his African American friend, complete with blackface, do-rag and gold chains.
