Less than an hour before a news conference at which he was expected to resign as governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam is now reportedly telling fellow Democrats the controversial medical school yearbook picture of a man in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe may not be him after all.

24 hours after Northam apologized for the 1984 picture and said he was a different man today, the governor is reportedly now claiming neither the black faced man or the Klansman is him. Several sourced say he might not resign after all.

One legislator who heard Northam's latest explanation and his vow to sound out classmates  to prove he was not in the picture told reporters the governor's claim were "turning my stomach."

"Ralph, this is a day late and a dollar short," the lawmaker said he told Northam, pointing out he is now claiming he didn't do something for which he apologized the day before.

Regardless of what Northam says at his Saturday news conference, sources in Richmond still insist he will resign as governor before the weekend is up.
