The cyclist who went viral for flipping off President Donald Trump's motorcade (and was subsequently fired from her job) just won an election for a seat on her county's board of supervisors, The Washington Post reported.
Her employer wasn't impressed, however, and the single mother of two was sacked from her job at government contractor Akima LLC.
When fighting her campaign in Loudoun County - the wealthiest in the US - Briskman didn't bring up the image that sparked her 15 minutes of fame unless homeowners started "talking about the administration" or commented on her bicycle pin.
After her case was dismissed, she announced that she would run for local office "because I feel I can more successfully effect change by serving in local government than by fighting an uphill battle in unfriendly courts", she wrote in a post on her crowdfunding page.
Herndon-based Akima, a government contractor where she had worked as a marketing executive for six months, fired her saying the photo barred its Internet-use policy.
Briskman, 52, won severance pay after she sued her former employer and the incident spurred her to run for office.
Two years later, her district now includes Trump National Golf Course.
"My finger said what I was feeling", Briskman said at the time.
"I just got angry", she said then.
An individual on behalf of Briskman launched a GoFundMe campaign for her, which raised almost $140,000 in donations, and Briskman unsuccessfully sued the company for violating her First Amendment rights.
Virginia also elected its first Muslim state senator yesterday, and Democrats took control of both the state senate and house for the first time in over 20 years.
