While almost the entire Democratic establishment rose up against Northam over the past week to demand he resign, party members did not call for immediate resignations over the two latest developments, which threaten to cause a political chain reaction that could make a GOP legislative leader the governor.
Should all three resign or be forced out by party higher-ups, governorship would be passed to Kirk Cox, speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates - and a Republican.
The state's lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax, was seen as a rising star in the Democratic party, and would have been expected to take Northam's place if he resigned.
Gillibrand stopped short of saying Fairfax should resign, nor did she explicitly state that she believes the allegations. NBC host Megyn Kelly had her show canceled and was ousted from the network a year ago, after she suggested that wearing blackface is acceptable as part of a costume.
Women and racial minorities are two of the party's most reliable voting blocs, and national Democrats have made racial justice and sexual equality key pillars of their agenda, taking a tough line against sexual misconduct or racial insensitivity to try to avoid being accused of hypocrisy in criticizing Trump and Republicans. Although The Post wrote that they found "no significant red flags or inconsistencies within the allegations", they were unable to corroborate her account, so they did not run a story.
"If they are all three there around the next statewide elections, it is really problematic", the Democrat said. He likened the situation to three sinking boats "that suddenly lash themselves together and find they can float".

A candid picture taken yesterday of a Democratic senator in Virginia captured the impact of the strain.
Fairfax repeated his belief on Wednesday they had a consensual encounter and asked that the woman be treated with respect.
Meanwhile, the Rev. Al Sharpton said in a fiery speech at historically black Virginia Union University that Northam and Herring must step down over their blackface admissions, and the allegations against Fairfax should be investigated thoroughly.
Members of the crowd of 300 students, faculty, clergy and political leaders shouted in agreement and jumped to their feet several times during Sharpton's speech. The photo that appeared in Northam's half-page profile shows someone in black face standing next to another person in a Ku Klux Klan hood and robe. Northam initially said he was in the photo, then denied it, but acknowledged putting shoe polish on his face for a dance contest in Texas in 1984, when he was in the Army.
A series of revelations over the past week have ensnared the governor and attorney general, both of whom admitted to wearing blackface while in college in the 1980s, and the lieutenant governor, accused of a 2004 sexual assault. He apologized for his "callous" behavior.
