Brianna Wu, best known as a Boston-area game developer who has been fighting Gamergate basement boys for several years, reports she will run for Congress in the 2018 Democratic primary.
Wu isn't saying which incumbent she will take on, but said it won't be against 5th District Rep. Katherine Clark, who has also suffered online harassment:
I would never run against Clark. She's a fantastic representative to women all though this state, and someone I deeply respect
Wu did have harsh words for 8th District Rep. Stephen Lynch:
Pretty much ANYONE would be better on women's issues than Lynch. A random person on street, my dog - a kid at local kindergarten.
It's just amazing to me that he considers himself a Democrat. He has the same views on women that people back in Mississippi did.
She talked to VentureBeat about her platform, including:
The other reason I’m running is because I’m ready for a bolder Democratic Party. I didn’t personally support Sanders in the primary, but he tapped into a very powerful disconnect between our party’s leadership and our base. We want leaders that will fight for us, and all too often the Democrats don’t stand up to the fringe extreme of the Republican Party. I’ve been called a lot of names over my career, but I’ve never been told I’m scared of a fight.
