The Washington Post did an exit interview with Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, and the Virginian-Pilot picked up on the detail that Northam said he’s “99 percent sure” of the identity of the person wearing blackface on his yearbook page. The paper reports:

In a statement provided to The Virginian-Pilot and Daily Press, Northam’s office on Tuesday declined to name the man he believes wore blackface in the photo, which ran on Northam’s page in a 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook.

But the governor told the Post in an article on Sunday that the man also attended the Norfolk medical school and has a name that’s alphabetically “very close to mine.”

Just how close are we talking?

Some people are theorizing that maybe he was really drunk at the time and therefore isn’t 100 percent sure he was the guy in blackface.

Just hang on a few more days, Virginia.
