Yearbook Staffer Refutes Ralph Northam's Excuses for Racist Photo
The saga of Ralph Northam is one for the ages. First he's an ardent supporter of baby-killing. Then, he admits to being a KKK/blackface cosplayer. Then, he tries calling bullhickey while simultaneously admitting to moonwalking whilst blackfaced. If this classmate of Northam's who was on the yearbook staff is to be believed, Ralphie-boy is also a lying douche. And still a racist.
William Elwood was in the same graduating class as Northam and was a member of the yearbook staff. Elwood says students were able to submit a minimum of three pictures for their page.
Oh, this is getting good.
During a press conference, the governor said he believed the picture was put on the wrong page. Elwood says that is unlikely.
"We were very careful. The envelopes came to us sealed," explained Elwood. "The envelopes were only opened to do the layout and then put back. Then they were sent back to the student they belonged to. All of the yearbook stuff was under lock and key."
Well, there you have it.
Even if it wasn't Northam in the photo, he selected it as one of three pics to best represent him. Something tells me if there was an error, it wouldn't have taken him 35 years to find out. Couple that with him admitting to slathering on the shoe polish on another occasion and his story becomes even less believable.
Now, the only question is how long it will take for Northam to claim this is all an elaborate Russian plot. He seems to have no shortage of excuses, despite nobody falling for them. Methinks it might be time for him to heed everyone's advice and moonwalk off into the sunset.
