The far-right news site that was first to publish a deeply racist photo from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's 1984 yearbook is owned by a consultant for Corey Stewart, the right-wing, neo-Confederate sympathizer who launched a failed bid to run against Northam for the state's governorship in 2017.

Big League Politics, which broke the Northam story, was acquired last year by Mustard Seed Media, according to a report last year in The Daily Beast. Mustard Seed is owned by former Stewart campaign consultant Reilly O'Neal, who also worked with Roy Moore's failed Senate campaign in Alabama.

Another former Stewart and Moore consultant, Noel Fritsch, is also involved with running Big League Politics, according to The Daily Beast.
