The cyclist who famously flicked off President Trump's motorcade has been elected to public office in the state of Virginia.

According to The Daily Caller:

Juli Briskman, the woman who got fired for flipping off President Donald Trump’s motorcade, won a local election Tuesday in Virginia.

Briskman won her election to the Loudoun County board of supervisors in Virginia as part of the blue wave that took over both of the state’s legislative bodies and defended the governorship Tuesday night, according to the Washington Post. Briskman first broke into national news in October 2017 for flipping off Trump’s motorcade on a bike as it drove past her on its way back from a golf outing. Briskman ousted a Republican to win the seat.

 

Briskman initially stayed silent after the photo went viral on social media, but eventually admitted to her company that she was the person in the photo. The company, government contracting firm Akima, fired her soon afterward, according to the Post.

The Trump-owned golf course the president was returning from now lies in her district.

It is not clear if she will use her new position to unfairly target President Trump.
