A failed Virginia Democratic candidate who was outed as a cam girl claimed that the leak of her humiliating sex streams are criminal.
Susanna Gibson, who lost her bid for the Virginia House of Delegates earlier this year said that Republican operatives were trying to interfere with the election when the shopped the tapes of her dirty deeds on the dark web.
Gibson became a national laughing stock when a bombshell Washington Post report revealed that she solicited “tips” from Chaturbate, a platform that allow viewers to pay tokens to see specific sex acts performed.
While posting as “HotWifeExperience,” the Democrat solicited salacious acts that she would engage in with her lawyer husband in private chat rooms for specific denominations of tokens.
Susanna Gibson’s life was not rocked because she streamed sex acts for money.

“I’ll let you f*** me in the a** d****-style in a private room if someone wants to pay. That’s the deal,” she said in one video.
In another, Gibson said she was “raising money for a good cause,” to incentivize uses to both tip and send her tokens to watch her urinate on camera.
She and her husband reportedly appeared in over a dozen videos that were archived on Chaturbate in September of 2022, which was after she launched her campaign.
The 40-year-old nurse practitioner, was running for a highly sought after seat in the House of Delegates, which had the potential to sway the chamber in the control of either political party, but eventually lost by less than 1,000 votes to Republican David Owen.
In a lengthy interview with Politico, Gibson said that she was unaware of the videos’ existence and didn’t find out until after the Post published the article titled: “Va. Dem. House candidate performed sex online with husband for tips.”
“I think it was Sept. 7, I was in clinic seeing patients and a reporter reached out to my campaign, trying to get my phone number. That’s how I found out,” she recalled.

“When you find out that there are sexually explicit videos of you online, especially by being contacted by national reporters — it is a feeling that I would not wish on my worst enemy.”
Gibson said that she was “fundamentally” changed by the experience, and was unable to “get up and function” until two weeks later.
She mentioned that it took leaving the state for a few days to get the reporters camped out at her door to leave her family alone, and said during that time she was “chomping at the bit” to go out and campaign.
“My entire life was rocked on Sept. 11, when the article ran,” the Virginia Democrat detailed.
“It ran, implying that I performed sex acts online with my husband for money.”
She claimed the Post wrote the article “based on this Dropbox file that self-described Republican operatives shopped around.”
Gibson noted that the GOP-aligned agents “found the videos on the dark web” and tried to sell them to several news outlets.
“I didn’t have any idea that there were ever videos of me that had been made and uploaded to multiple sites,” she asserted.
Gibson hired a lawyer that tried to torpedo the article by claiming that she never consented to the videos being recorded, but the story made national news.
“I think if I wasn’t a candidate, the Post probably would have been appalled at the invasion of my privacy,” she told Politico.
“But because I was a candidate, they decided that it was a political story, rather than an invasion of my privacy and potentially a crime.”
Gibson bemoaned being targeted and warned that the digital privacy of millennial women running for political offices would continue to be at risk, citing a study that determined 90% of them have taken nude photos in their lives.
“Content that is initially made in a consensual context, which is then distributed in a non-consensual context digitally, is a crime,” she told the outlet.
“Just because someone consented to share something in one particular context doesn’t mean that it is or should be fair game for the whole world to see.”
She noted that “choosing to share content” under the guise that it is only viewable by a specific user at the time is “a far cry from consenting for that content to be recorded and then broadly disseminated.”
Gibson believes that she was victimized by the article and the political operative that sold the videos was never admonished for their actions.
“A political operative found sexually explicit videos of a young woman running for office that she never knew existed,” she described the situation.
“Trying to get them published to humiliate, intimidate, coerce, harass this woman, and with the purpose of influencing the outcome of an election that very well could have been the majority maker or breaker for the House.”
Gibson believes the actions were criminal and is working with members of the General Assembly in Virginia to amend the state’s revenge porn law to increase the penalty from a misdemeanor.
“I want the person who found and then disseminated illegal pornographic images of me — again, violating federal and state laws — they need to be held accountable,” she concluded.
