They sure seem to be proud of the mess in this state.
It has been a tumultuous two years for Juli Briskman. In 2017 she became something of a name in her area of Virginia. While out riding her bike President Trump’s motorcade came driving past, and Juli — like many of her resistance-minded brethren — felt the need to act out. She extended her arm and raised her middle finger. Curiously this act was caught on camera, and she became a viral sensation.
At first, she was a media darling, but then came the backlash. Briskman was fired from her job as a result of the photo. Now here it is in 2019 and in Tuesday’s elections, Briskman won in a local contest. She has gone from losing her job over a crude act in public to becoming a government worker, and in many ways, she represents the shifting landscape in Old Dominion.
