Virginia House of Delegates Candidate Faces Controversy Over Past Online Activities

Susanna Gibson, a Democratic candidate running for a seat in Virginia’s House of Delegates, is facing controversy over her past online activities. It has been revealed that Gibson streamed herself having sex on the adult website Chaturbate, soliciting “tips” for specific sex acts, and interrupting her acts to request payments through tokens.

More than a dozen videos posted under her username on Chaturbate were archived in September 2022, after she announced her candidacy for the highly competitive district in the Richmond area. In some of these videos, Gibson can be seen soliciting “tips” for performing acts requested by viewers, while in others, she performed specific acts in private rooms, which cost extra.

Gibson called the exposure of the videos “an illegal invasion of my privacy designed to humiliate me and my family” and stated that it won’t intimidate or silence her. Her attorney, Daniel P. Watkins, argued that the exposure of these videos by a Republican operative violates Virginia’s revenge porn law.

Gibson is competing against Republican candidate David Owen for the House seat in the 2024 election. The Virginia race is considered a major toss-up as Republicans aim to take control of the state Senate and retain the House, potentially giving GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin unified control of the state government.

Gibson has received endorsements from former Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney. She has out-raised Owen in campaign funds but expended most of her funds in a competitive primary.
