Virginia GOP Mails Porn Screenshots to Voters to Smear Pro-Choice Candidate

RICHMOND, Va. — Two weeks before a highly contested election in Virginia, the commonwealth’s Republican Party has sent a mass mailing to voters containing explicit screen captures from an adult cam show featuring one of the Democratic candidates.

The GOP-mailed envelopes — which salaciously warn, “Do not open if you are under the age of 18,” and “Warning: Explicit material enclosed” — are part of a continuing attempt to smear 57th District House candidate Susanna Gibson.

As XBIZ reported, Gibson was outed as a Chaturbate cam performer by the Washington Post last month, in a salacious exposé that political observers believe to be a smear operation by her Republican opponents.

The Intercept has described the area Gibson is running to represent as “a competitive swing district that holds massive implications for the upcoming November off-year state elections.”

The writer of the Washington Post attack on Gibson’s reputation is the newspaper’s Virginia reporter Laura Vozzella, who has been widely criticized for her relentless bias in favor of the state’s current Republican governor, Glenn Youngkin.

Questioned about the pornographic mailer his party had produced, Youngkin told the local NBC affiliate that Gibson’s personal life “is something that that candidate needs to explain to people and the Democratic party needs to have to have an opinion on this.”

The pornographic mailer includes “two pieces of paper with censored quotes and screenshots from Gibson’s public porn livestream,” NBC12 News reported. “In these videos, she allegedly performed sex acts with her husband and asked viewers to pay them money.”

GOP Proudly Owning to the Salacious Tactic

The Gibson campaign released a statement accusing Republican opponent David Owen and the Virginia GOP of “trying to distract voters from their extreme agenda to ban abortion, defund schools, and allow violent criminals to access weapons of war. Voters are tired of these desperate attacks, and they will not be fooled by them. From day one, Susanna has been focused on protecting reproductive freedom, fully funding our schools, and keeping our communities safe. Nothing will ever deter her commitment to our community.”

Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Rich Anderson proudly owned that the mailer came directly from his group.

“Gibson’s campaign has falsely alleged that the videos of her publicly engaging in sexual activity on publicly accessible pornography websites were ‘leaked’ by Republicans. In reality, the opposite is true. After revelation of her very public acts, polling now shows her to be 11 points behind her Republican opponent. Additionally, her running mates, Schuyler VanValkenburg and Rodney Willett, have not condemned her actions. The mail piece corrects her false statements using already-published mainstream media news accounts and Gibson’s own public words as documented via her videos.”

Earlier this month, The Daily Caller — an influential national right-wing news site linked to Tucker Carlson — attempted to shame Henrico County Commonwealth prosecutor Shannon Taylor, a Democrat, into charging Gibson with prostitution due to her sex work as a cam performer.
