Democrats are still trying to figure out damage control for the exciting new world where this is a thing.
The release of a sex video made by a woman running for a House of Delegates seat in Virginia is roiling the race for the majority in the state’s legislative chamber. Susanna Gibson and her husband livestreamed a video of them performing sexual acts on the website Chaturbate and asked viewers to pay them money, The Washington Post reported Monday.
While some Democrat media is trying to stand besides her, Democrats with a national profile have places to be that are not the places where they’re being asked about Gibson.
According to The Washington Times, Sen. Tim Kaine said during a video conference with reporters Wednesday that he was taken “aback” by the news of Gibson’s video and said he met her for the first time last weekend during a rally.
“I don’t really have much sense of it because as far as I know, it’s the first time we’d met,” Kaine said according to The Washington Times.
Kaine’s fellow Democrat Sen. Mark Warner (Va.) told the publication he will weigh in on the story once he receives more information.
“I’m anxious to hear — there have been reports from her campaign of pushback,” Warner said. “I want to hear both sides and then I’ll weigh in.”
The publication also reported that when asked about the development, Spanberger said, “It’s a shocking, terrible situation, and I’m late to a meeting.”
Can’t top that one. It’s usually a good idea to be late to a meeting when confronting a shocking, terrible situation.
The Democrat media is still field-testing exciting damage control propositions like this.
