A former yearbook staffer at Eastern Virginia Medical School said that the blackface/KKK photo on the page of Ralph Northam, the Democratic Governor of Virginia, is almost certainly him.
“In my personal knowledge and the people I knew that were working on the staff, we went through great pains to make sure that there was not a mix-up,” William Elwood told WHSV. Elwood was a page designer for the 1984 yearbook.
Northam, after first accepting responsibility and apologizing the photos Friday night, later denied that he was in the photo at a bizarre Saturday press conference. He did voluntarily admit, though, that he had worn blackface at a Michael Jackson dance competition in San Antonio, Texas.
“Each student was allowed to submit a certain number of pictures that they wanted to appear on the page with their graduation photograph,” Elwood said. “They chose their own pictures, they were submitted in a sealed envelope with their name on them, and the only time that envelope was opened was when the layout was done on their page.”
Elwood explained that there were other blackface photos in the same yearbook, claiming that nobody “thought of that as a significant problem back then.”
Northam has refused to resign from his post while his Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax, is embattled in a sexual assault scandal, a story broken by Big League Politics Sunday night.
Fairfax has denied the allegations, saying that he did have sex with his accuser Vanessa Tyson, but that it was consensual.
Tyson has reportedly hired the same law firm retained by Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his confirmation hearings in September.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
