Mike Webb, a Republican running as an independent in Virginia’s 8th district, has since deleted the screenshot after the porn mishap went viral. Webb posted another screenshot on Facebook Monday night, saying “THANKS FOR THE TAB CHECK RANGER BUDDIES.” He made reference to the gaffe and said “today’s notorious post reached almost 200,000 people.”
