Juli Briskman, who famously flipped off President Donald Trump’s motorcade in a viral 2017 photo, won her race Tuesday night for a seat on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in Virginia.

Briskman, a former marketing executive and local Democratic activist, unseated eight-year incumbent Republican Suzanne Volpe. She will represent the Algonkian District on the board, which serves more than 400,000 residents.

Briskman made national news in October 2017 when a White House photographer traveling with the president snapped a picture of her riding her bicycle and giving the middle finger to Trump’s motorcade as it passed her. The photo went viral immediately, with late-night talk show hosts cracking jokes about it and people on social media hailing the unidentified woman as a “she-ro.”

“Two years ago I was fired for standing up to the backwards agenda of Donald Trump. But now my neighbors in Algonkian District have backed me up and rejected the Trump agenda,” Briskman told HuffPost Tuesday night. “We worked really hard on this campaign. It was a tough race. I’m excited to create a Loudoun County that works for everyone.”

Man karma was working overtime in Virginia and Kentucky Tuesday night, don’t you think?

This woman lost her job and had to rely on the efforts of her friends and supporters to get her life back together. 

Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Gryphen – karma is sweet! Way to go Ms. Briskman!! The extra bonus is, the district where she was elected contains a certain golf course *belonging* to the recipient of rightfully deserved gesture!!

    **ownership of said premises is quite dubious.

    “What happened to Hill isn’t an outgrowth of millennial culture. The nonconsensual sharing of intimate images and videos has been happening for decades. For example, the first issue of Playboy featured nude images of Marilyn Monroe that Hugh Hefner used WITHOUT her permission. A sex tape filmed by Pamela Anderson and her then-husband Tommy Lee was famously stolen and leaked in 1995.” – “It can happen to anyone, at any age. Research from 2017 shows that almost 20% of reported victims are over the age of 50.”
    “the nonconsensual sharing of intimate images is a form of control, retaliation and humiliation, just like any other form of sexual violence.”
    “The Power and Control Wheel is a tool used by domestic violence experts to understand the ways in which domestic violence occurs in everyday interactions.”
