Florida police have obtained a video showing Moms for Liberty co-founder Bridget Ziegler having sex with a woman. It’s unclear if the woman is the same woman who accused Ziegler’s husband of rape after having had regular threesomes with the couple.

Police obtained the video after executing a search warrant on the cell phone and Google account of her husband, Christian Ziegler. The warrant was part of the police investigation into the aforementioned rape accusation. Neither Bridget nor Christian Ziegler have responded to inquiries about the recently obtained video.

The couple’s former threesome partner filed a complaint with police on October 4, alleging that she was sexually assaulted in her home by Christian Ziegler on October 2. Sources close to the investigation said that the woman had a sexual relationship with both of the Zieglers for the past three years. Bridget Ziegler was not present when the alleged sexual assault occurred.

The sources also said that investigators searched Christian Ziegler’s phone and found that he secretly recorded video of the three-way sexual encounters with the woman and his wife. Bridget Ziegler has admitted to having threesomes with the woman and has been roundly criticized since her organization, Moms for Liberty, opposes LGBTQ+ content in public schools and equal rights.

A police affidavit stated the accuser’s allegations that she and the Zieglers had planned a sexual encounter for October 2. But when Bridget Ziegler was no longer available, the woman canceled, saying, “I was mostly in for her.”

She then alleges that Christian Ziegler was waiting in the hallway outside her apartment when she opened the door to walk her dog. She says he came inside and sexually assaulted her. The affidavit says, “The victim advised Christian did not wear a condom, and he stated, ‘I’m leaving the same way I came in.’”

Christian Ziegler – who has been captured on surveillance footage at the woman’s apartment – has admitted to having sex with her but claims it was consensual. The victim also reportedly told police she was intoxicated after having been drinking tequila all day, emphasizing she was unable to consent.

Though no charges have been filed in the case yet, last Sunday, the Florida Republican Party voted unanimously to censure Christian Ziegler and strip him of authority as the party’s chair amid the investigation.

Michael Thompson, chairman of the Lee County Republican Executive Committee, attended the meeting and told reporters, “He apologized for putting all of us in this position. He apologized for the shame that it brought on him and his family and the community. He was remorseful. He’s not a bad guy. He just did a real stupid thing and he’s going to suffer the consequences.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has called on Christian Ziegler to resign in the wake of the allegations, saying, “I don’t see how he can continue with that investigation ongoing given the gravity of those situations. And so I think he should step aside. I think he should tend to that.”

Bridget Ziegler was quietly removed as the director of the School Board Leadership Program at the Leadership Institute, an organization that trains conservative activists. The Sarasota School Board also voted unanimously for her to resign, but she has refused thus far.
