Sorry, we can just go ahead with the vote, because Encyclopedia Ed has cracked the case:
Yep, no suburban teenager has ever attended a party not within walking distance of their homes. Clearly, it must have been some other guy who I will name despite having no evidence whatsoever. And if you’re not sure you buy this, he can quickly come up with something else!
Just a reminder of Ed’s original (deleted) theory, before he cracked the case through Zillow: pic.twitter.com/b4bXLWH7d8

Ed Whelan, a former clerk to the late justice Antonin Scalia and president of the Ethics [LOL — ed.] and Public Policy Center, pointed to floor plans, online photographs and other information to suggest a location for the house party in suburban Maryland that Ford described. He also named and posted photographs of the classmate he suggested could be responsible.
Ford dismissed Whelan’s theory in a statement late Thursday: “I knew them both, and socialized with” them, Ford said, adding that she had once visited the other classmate in the hospital. “There is zero chance that I would confuse them.”
Apparently Ed works for the public policy part of the operation?
