Northam yearbook page leaked by angry former classmate
written by Jeanine Martin February 3, 2019
Patrick Howley, the editor of BigLeaguepolitics.com, was alerted to the now famous photo in Governor Ralph Northamís medical school yearbook by a former classmate who was angry over Northamís comments earlier in the week about infanticide. From the WashingtonPost.com,
ďItís very easy to explain,Ē Howley, 29, said in an interview Saturday. ďA concerned citizen, not a political opponent, came to us and pointed this out. I was very offended [by the photo] because I donít like racism.Ē
The tip came after Northamís comments on Wednesday about late-term abortions, he said. Howley declined to give any further information about his source, citing a confidentiality agreement. But he said it took him just a few hours to confirm that the photo was authentic.
The source of the tip appears to have been a medical school classmate or classmates of Northam who acted as a direct result of the abortion controversy that erupted earlier in the week, according to two people at Big League Politics, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
ďThe revelations about Ralph Northamís racist past were absolutely driven by his medical school classmateís anger over his recent very public support for infanticide,Ē one of the two said.
The tip was not driven by politics or political opportunity but by anger over Northamís own words about infanticide.
