That unceremonious dumping did little to make Briskman rethink her actions though, with the newly unemployed executive responding a question about any possible regrets by stating: 'I'd do it again'. Under Akima's social media policy, "discriminatory, obscene malicious or threatening content, [or] knowingly false" social media content is grounds for "termination of employment".

"It was just a heads-up", she said.

"They said: "We separate ourselves from you", " said Juli Briskman at the Huffington Post.

"Basically, you can not have "lewd" or "obscene" things in your social media".

"I flipped off the motorcade a number of times", she said.

However, Briskman isn't convinced, especially given the fact that she wasn't wearing anything or doing anything that could have connected her back to the firm. But that didn't stop Briskman from complaining about the perceived injustice, citing the case of a male colleague who was reprimanded-but not fired-for calling someone a "f*****g Libtard asshole" on Facebook.

A photographer traveling with the presidential motorcade snapped Briskman's picture and the image quickly spread across news outlets and social media.

The Washington Post reports that one of Briskman's roles at Akima was to be in charge of the company's Facebook page. But became aware after a few friends thought they recognized her and tagged her in the photo, asking. Within days, they fired her, Briskman told HuffPost. That last part, apparently, was too much for her employer, government contractor Akima LLC.

Bradley Shear, a prominent technology attorney, told The Washington Post that her honesty was her mistake because she self-identified to her employer, which was something it took into account before firing her.

Her employer, a government contractor, didn't appreciate her personal politics and let her go over the incident.

"You can say whatever you want", Shear told The Post. In October, she was riding along what is her usual cycling path in Northern Virginia, when the motorcade drove by.

"I'd do it again", she said. In the aftermath, HuffPost reports, Briskman was sacked from her job. "I am horrified", she said. "I'm angry about where our country is right now, I am appalled". The self-identified Democrat said she plans to look for a job with left-wing advocacy groups such as PETA and Planned Parenthood. "I am apalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something".
