Washington (CNN)Former FBI Director James Comey called Thursday for the removal of Confederate statues in Virginia's capital in the wake of blackface scandals involving top statewide elected officials, in an op-ed for The Washington Post.
"Expressing bipartisan horror at blackface photos is essential, but removing the statues would show all of America that Virginia really has changed," Comey writes. "There is no doubt that Virginia's leaders need to be held accountable for their personal history, but every Virginia leader is responsible for the racist symbols that still loom over our lives," Comey writes.

And Comey is still relevant with a seat at the table, how?
Comey is a liberal kook.
Buzz Off Comey!
You belong in prison.
This Comey jerk is really getting on my nerves. He feels entitled to pop off about everything.
Why is he still talking?
We will not stand for our history being erased.
Why? Did Robert E. Lee wear blackface?
You called it, GF!
People need to check his old yearbooks.
And we wonder why Hillary escaped criminal accountability.
Comey the Corrupt, that’s why. Lock him up.
Comey went to William and Mary. It’s not wonder he suffers from mental illness. Highest suicide rate school.
He should get a job. He reminds me of the old cranks who used to write letters to the editor — ALL the time.
Prejudice abounds. The first thing that stunned me was a cop telling me to register my car and get rid of my NYS plates.
The second stunner was a born and raised southerner, referring to blacks, saying "they know their place."
As if we needed any more evidence all this cultural destruction was orchestrated by the O’muslim treason regime...
If he can convince everyone to nix the Confederates then he can give Hillary another pass.
A sociopathic gibbon. Who would trust this complete weirdo? Pulling down statues?
The FBI has around 35,000 employees and a budget of around 9 billion they deign to let us know about. No doubt there has been a complete culture change since he left, for sure.
Longstreet was a Georgian, not a Virginian. Monument Avenue honors Virginia's senior confederate commanders. Jefferson Davis is the only non-Virginian, but as president, he of course lived in Richmond during the war. Not that Comey would bother to base his tantrum on facts.
Yes, Longstreet became a controversial figure after the war, for reasons that reflect great credit upon him. But that shouldn't be conflated with Monument Avenue politics.
