Virginia House Democratic candidate performed sex acts with husband on webcam for ‘tips’

A Virginia Democratic candidate for the state’s House of Delegates performed sex acts with her husband online — and asked her virtual audience to pitch in with “tips,” The Post has learned.

Susanna Gibson, a mother of two young children who is running in a competitive race to represent District 57 in Richmond, showed quite a bit more than skin on the adult streaming website Chaturbate, according to screenshots of archived material reviewed by The Post.

The 40-year-old nurse practitioner hosted more than a dozen of the live romps with her husband on the platform, which were then posted to a publicly accessible archive on the website Recurbate in September 2022 after she declared her candidacy, the Washington Post first reported.

The unconventional candidate had more than 5,770 Chaturbate followers, whom she repeatedly pressed for more “tokens” in exchange for certain acts in “private” showings — adding that she was “raising money for a good cause.”

In other videos, she suggested that she and her husband have “tried swapping” with different partners as she is “ethically non-monogamous,” but that he “doesn’t like sharing.”

Gibson often thanked her viewers after the tokens arrived and her husband, a lawyer, in at least one case echoed her requests. Chaturbate’s terms of conditions state: “Requesting or demanding specific acts for tips may result in a ban from the Platform for all parties involved.”

In a statement to The Washington Post, Gibson called the publicly posted videos “an illegal invasion of my privacy designed to humiliate me and my family.

“It won’t intimidate me and it won’t silence me,” Gibson said. “My political opponents and their Republican allies have proven they’re willing to commit a sex crime to attack me and my family because there’s no line they won’t cross to silence women when they speak up.”

The candidate’s attorney, Daniel P. Watkins, told the outlet that the archived videos violated Virginia’s revenge porn law, which makes it a Class 1 misdemeanor to “maliciously” circulate sexual images or another person’s nudity with “intent to coerce, harass, or intimidate.”

The lawyer cited a Virginia Appeals Court ruling in 2021 that it was illegal for a man to secretly record his girlfriend during a consensual sexual encounter even if that video was never shared with others.

“We are working closely with state and federal law enforcement,” Watkins also said.

Her campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Gibson is going up against Republican David Owen, a former home builder, for the Nov. 7 election, as Democrats are seeking to regain their majority in the 100-member Virginia House.

Republicans currently control the lower chamber by three delegates, 49 to 46. Democrats lead the state Senate, 22 to 18.

Gibson launched her campaign in July 2022 and has since raised $376,895 during her campaign, compared with $339,621 raised by the Owen campaign, according to the campaign finance website the Virginia Public Access Project.

However, she maintains just $77,435 cash on hand after going head-to-head in the June 20 Democratic primary with opponent Bob Shippee. Owen has retained $166,179 of his funds after facing no primary challenger.
