"Sex cam Democrat Susanna Gibson garners backing from legislators and advocates, but the future remains uncertain"
A Virginia Democratic candidate who recorded sex acts with her husband for money on a livestreaming website has received endorsements from liberal politicians and advocacy groups.
Susanna Gibson, a Democratic candidate running for delegate in Virginia's 57th District, is facing criticism from conservatives after it was revealed that she had recorded sexually explicit videos with her husband on the pornographic platform Chaturbate. Despite this revelation, top Democrats and left-wing advocacy groups have continued to endorse her campaign. The videos, which were reported by the Washington Post, were available on other pornography websites and featured Gibson under the username "HotWifeExperience." Some of the clips were posted a year ago, and it was discovered that Gibson's husband had donated $5,000 to her campaign around the same time the videos surfaced. Despite the controversy, Gibson has stated that she will not be intimidated or silenced by her opponents. She has received endorsements from prominent Democrats, including Rep. Abigail Spanberger and ex-Gov. Ralph Northam. Additionally, several advocacy groups, such as Voters of Tomorrow and Vote Pro Choice, have expressed their support for Gibson. However, conservatives argue that the Democratic Party's endorsement of Gibson raises questions about their stance on such behavior. The controversy surrounding Gibson's campaign has made the race in Virginia's 57th District one of the most competitive in the state.
