NE-02: Democrat Ann Ashford's virtual town hall delayed by person posting porn during video chat

Omaha congressional candidate Ann Ashford halted her virtual town hall meeting Saturday morning after it was interrupted by someone posting pornography.

Most local campaigns are shifting their events online because of concerns about the novel coronavirus.

Ashford, an Omaha lawyer, is one of three Democrats running in Nebraska’s May 12 primary. The others are Kara Eastman and Gladys Harrison. The winner will face U.S. Rep. Don Bacon, R-Neb., this fall.

Ashford was about to open her Saturday virtual town hall to questions on the video chat service Zoom when someone logged in and started posting explicit images.

“It was a Russian name,” said Eric Aspengren, a spokesman for Ashford’s campaign. “We just shut it down immediately because we didn’t know what was going on.”

2. Russians...Putin is active and well...How much of the disastrous response by Rump

is under orders from his boss?

Killing Americans who are not cooperative with fascists, i.e. liberals and democrats, is their number one agenda, after all.

If I said this a year ago I would get screamed at, I did say it and was. Not just here.
