From Fox News:

The female cyclist who flipped off President Trump’s motorcade last year will run for a local office in Northern Virginia in a bid to capitalize on the newfound fame.

Juli Briskman, 51, will seek to unseat Suzanne M. Volpe, a Republican who represents the Algonkian District on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, in the 2019 election.

Continued:

The board has been consistently controlled by Republicans, despite that the county voting for Democrats in state or federal elections, the Washington Post reported. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won the county by 17 points in the 2016 election.

The woman captured headlines after she flipped off the president’s motorcade as an act of resistance to the administration.

WATCH:

Briskman was fired from her job after the middle finger picture went big, via BBC:

Juli Briskman was fired by government contractor Akima LLC in November 2017 after a press photographer travelling with the president captured the image.

“Americans should not be forced to choose between their principles and their paychecks,” her lawsuit states.

Her lawyers argue her right to free speech was violated by the firing.

Continued:

Ms Briskman, 50, was on a weekend bike ride in October 2017 in the Washington DC suburbs when she encountered the armoured presidential motorcade.

A pool photographer shared the image with journalists, and it quickly became the fodder of late-night TV comedians.

“I never imagined that my ‘one-finger salute’ to the Presidential motorcade and its occupant would cost me my job,” the single mother of two teenagers said in a statement accompanying her lawsuit.

We’re going to have to wait and see if Briskman wins her race.

Could be very interesting.

If she wins, what will Trump tweet her way?
