Re “Probe into Northam’s blackface scandal ‘inconclusive,’” Free Press May 23-25 edition:
Gov. Ralph S. Northam has a unique lopsided smile. You don’t have to be detective John Shaft to identify Gov. Northam even when he is in blackface. Of course, the report by McGuire Woods law firm would not conclude it is Gov. Northam in the yearbook photo based on a subjective evaluation.
I question the sincerity and integrity of the people who authored the report because modern facial recognition software was not used in the investigation to give a definitive answer.
Nonetheless, I am convinced that the person wearing blackface in the yearbook photograph is Gov. Northam.
