This yearbook page surfaced today. The entire page is for Ralph Northam.

How come you're not concerned this time about the media ruining people's lives by dredging up old indiscretions from the distant past?

Who says I’m not. This will undoubtedly ruin him but I don’t think it should.


Edit: I guess it depends on the context. If he was legit in the kkk it should ruin him but by the looks of it this was a dumb Halloween costume in the 50s in which case who cares

Amazing it didn’t with the election in 2017 against Gillespie. He’s probably kicking himself for not finding this then.

It was from 1984.

In 1984? The Governor has some ‘splaining to do.

Damn that looks like the 50s to me :D


In either case it was obviously a Halloween costume. Won’t matter to either side but shouldn’t matter tbh.

Assuming its true, well that's a hot mess.

The Virginia Lt Governor is Justin Fairfax, he is only the second African-American to be elected to state-wide office for the state.

50/50 Northam survives this even if he shouldn’t. Lt Gov is fine.

Oppo research people owe a bunch of refunds I think.

It would be interesting if we could flash back to the time of Abe Lincoln and the civil war.
Bringing along people like Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and the entire cast from Fox News.
Which side would they side with?
Lincoln and the plight of slavery? Or the South and slave ownership?
Knowing what we know today about the above, does anyone really think that Rush Limbaugh or Fox or Ann or Donald would support Abe Lincoln?
Or.... would they consider slaves as property like we consider our automobile?
I can hear Rush on the radio defending the ownership of slaves, and what an injustice to sacrifice their property and wealth for some "liberal cause".
After all, slaves were considered a measurement of wealth for plantation owners, pretty much as with owning land is considered a measurement of wealth today.
Does anyone really believe these people would ever consider giving up such a major part of their wealth? Or that Rush or any of the others mentioned above would side with Abe Lincoln?
Let alone any of them would considered the plight of the slave vs the injustice of the slave owner forced to hand over a chunk of wealth to THE LIBERALS like president Lincoln.
Oh if we only had access to time travel. Then we'd know.
And sadly, Donald Trump would most likely still have been elected in 2016.

Maybe Gillespie did find it but since he was furiously attempting to court the racist vote was worried Northam would cut into his base.

In the age of "Beach Week," I highly doubt anyone cares.

my mother is a sycophantic republican, so this should make her quite happy.
until the black guy takes over then she cries.

It's kind of sad that something most thought was funny 35 years ago comes back to haunt him today.

Reportedly he is referred in the yearbook with the nickname "Coonman".

Who even edited this yearbook and thought this was ok?

Umm, what? 1984. A year after Lando blew up the second Death Star in ROTJ.

How did the Republicans not find this during the election? That's political malpractice

Looks like Gillespie may have been the only GOP politician that wasn't working with the Russian oppo teams. :D
