The law firm handling an investigation into Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook page that included a blackface photo said Wednesday that it was unable to determine whether the governor appeared in the picture.
The law firm of McGuireWoods conducted the probe on behalf of Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), reaching out to 1984 yearbook staffers and alums of the school and releasing a 32-page report.
The report said no one interviewed could say whether the photo appeared on the page in error – and that no one could say definitely whether Northam was in the picture.
A sad, pathetic and smarmy defense that included moonwalking and a Michael Jackson costume has thus far been enough for Northam to keep his job.
But really, what was the basis for this report? To vindicate Northam, and give EVMS a chance to prove that they are now completely woke?
The only one who knows the identities of the gentlemen in the picture is the Governor himself. If facial recognition can’t prove it is Northam in blackface, he’s probably the one under the hood.
