Washington (AFP) – A cyclist who was fired after flipping the bird — making a rude single-fingered gesture — to US President Donald Trump’s motorcade has been elected to local office in Virginia.

Juli Briskman, whose one-handed salute was captured in an AFP photograph that went viral, beat the Republican incumbent to a seat on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in state elections that saw Trump’s Republican party suffer a series of stinging defeats.

The article goes on to state the following:

The single mother of two teens lost her job as a marketing analyst for a United States government and military subcontractor after the snapshot of her gesture spread across media and the internet in 2017, bringing her insults and threats.

Briskman celebrated Tuesday night, tweeting, “As it turns out, Briskman’s district includes a certain golf course owned by a certain president. “Isn’t that sweet justice?” she asked, her cackle suggesting that she knew the answer to her own question.”

In another tweet prior to winning, she wrote, “We’re optimistic that Loudoun & Virginia will reject the Trump agenda and set the national tone for 2020! #FlipVABlue.
