Jon Levine, a media editor for “The Wrap,” shared a video Wednesday from a 2016 episode of “The View” in which host Joy Behar shared a photo of herself dressed as a “beautiful African woman” at a Halloween party and explained that she had used “makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

The video clip resurfaced this week as the top-ranking Democrats in the Virginia legislature are dealing with scandal over donning blackface in their pasts.

Gov. Ralph Northam’s shocking medical school yearbook photo of someone in blackface and another person in a Ku Klux Klan hood surfaced and, in a press conference Saturday, he admitted to wearing blackface for a dance competition. However, after initially apologizing for being in the yearbook photo, Northam later claimed that he's not one of the people in the offensive yearbook photo.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring admitted Wednesday that he too had donned blackface for a costume.

"In 1980, when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college, some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers we listened to at the time, like Kurtis Blow, and perform a song,” Herring said in his statement. “It sounds ridiculous even now writing it. But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes – and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives of others – we dressed up and put on wigs and brown makeup.”

"This was a onetime occurrence and I accept full responsibility for my conduct,” he admitted.

In addition to those officials’ blackface scandals, Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is facing some sexual assault allegations.
