Virginia Democrat Who Was Caught Starring in Porn Appears to Lose Election

A controversial statewide legislative race in Virginia appears to be over — and it looks like a rare win for Republicans.

Tuesday’s round of elections saw a number of competitive races for seats in the state’s House of Delegates, but few have been as polarizing as the contest in suburban Richmond’s 57th District.

Democrat Susanna Gibson appears to have narrowly lost that race to Republican David Owen, according to the New York Post.

The Associated Press reported that the race was still too close to call as of Wednesday morning — but that didn’t stop Owen from claiming victory on social media.

‘It’s my honor to be elected Delegate in HD-57 last night,” he posted. “I will begin work immediately to provide the unity, common-sense leadership, and responsive service that I promised. Thank you to the voters for this honor. Now, I’m ready to get to work!”

While Owen appears to have emerged as the victor, Gibson is the one who garnered the most coverage in the race.

That’s because, two months before the election, she was outed as having made pornography in exchange for online tips.

Gibson would reportedly film herself performing various sex acts and solicit donations from viewers. She made the pornographic videos with her husband.

Gibson, a 40-year-old nurse practitioner and mother of two, swiftly denounced the revelation as an “illegal invasion of privacy” — despite uploading the content herself to a publicly accessible site.

“My political opponents and their Republican allies have proven they’re willing to commit a sex crime to attack me and my family because there’s no line they won’t cross to silence women when they speak up,” Gibson said at the time.

She added, “It won’t intimidate me, and it won’t silence me.”

Gibson ran on a pro-abortion platform.

Despite Owen’s apparent win, many Republicans are not particularly enamored with the election results out of Virginia.

Democrats retained control of the state Senate and flipped the House of Delegates blue.
