Former GOP chair’s wife Bridget Ziegler breaks silence on threesome sex scandal as she refuses to step down from school board job and says ‘sexual orientation’ has nothing to do with her work

The former Florida GOP chairman’s wife has broken her silence on the threesome sex scandal – after she refused to step down from her school board job.  

Bridget Ziegler, 41, faced hours of public scrutiny on Tuesday night, with people calling her to quit after her husband was accused of raping a woman they were in a meage-a-trois with. 

Christian was cleared of the rape allegation last month, but police are now attempting to charge him with illegally video-recording the sexual encounter he had.  

Bridget, who has so far kept quiet about the scandal, faced a four to one vote to remove her from the Sarasota County Schools Board in December. She has refused to step down. 

She still sits on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Disney World oversight board – and she has said in the past that the scandal has ever come up during meetings there. 

Bridget Ziegler skirted around the issue on Tuesday night, but later during the meeting said: ‘I do believe specific to sexual orientation and what have you, has no place in comments up here. Personal lives, families, all of those.’

She has been accused of hypocrisy for engaging in bisexual acts during a threesome with another woman and her husband, while also being an outspoken leader of anti-LGBTQ policies. 

Ziegler told the Sarasota County Schools Board on Tuesday night: ‘I know it’s been a long evening and I want to thank staff again for hanging in there. I wanted to mention a couple things that came up in public comment.

‘I’m going to keep this very tight for many reasons and much of the conversation that’s come up at public comment, I will never address in these chambers, because it has absolutely nothing to do with my role as a board member.

‘There is a lot of intentional conjecture and in taking things out of context but when it comes to public comment I would agree with Mr Edwards. And I actually want to commend the chair today because it is very difficult to chair these meetings.’

Speaking about her role on the committee, she said: ‘I have taken a lot of arrows, I know my my colleagues up here have as well it is not comfortable but I also want to applaud Mrs Rose for trying to raise the decorum because we do have important work. 

‘We are doing great stuff I’ve been on this board for almost 10 years and I will say again the progress that is taking place in the last 3 to 6 months is unbelievable.’ 

She said that she will ‘defend’ the right of the public to speak, as she added: ‘I know there is a current hot-button issue, but I know there have been many prior to December and those emotions run high and so it makes it very challenging to navigate that.’

Ziegler referenced an incident which occured in March of 2022, when another board member, who is gay, was accused by someone of being a child groomer.

She said on Tuesday: ‘I do believe specific to sexual orientation and what have you, has no place in comments up here. Personal lives, families, all of those. 

‘But I also accept the fact that as elected officials we open ourselves up to incredible criticism, but as an individual I absolutely reject that. 

‘As we go into policy discussions. There’s a lot of hyperbole and rhetoric out there in the paper or on social media.

‘I don’t want anyone to be fearful, I don’t want anyone in our district to feel that we are providing anything other than a fair, safe and tolerant environment for every single person to learn and that means not just to learn—and work.

‘As you can hear, there’s a lot of people who believe that’s not the case.’

This follows news that Christian Ziegler told his wife to hunt for a threesome partner and had a list of multiple women’s names on his phone titled ‘THE LIST’ including his rape accuser under the sub-heading ‘F***’, police claim in new documents.

The 40-year-old was stripped of the party’s chairmanship in January after he was accused of raping a woman who previously joined him and his wife Bridget for sex, allegations he denies.

He had his first sexual encounter with his rape accuser in 2021 and had a list of women’s names including the accuser under the word ‘F***’, according to new police records.

Documents show Ziegler and his Moms for Liberty co-founder wife discussing the woman who accused him of rape in text messages with Bridget concerned for her well-being.

The Sarasota Police Department dropped sexual battery charges against him but have referred a video voyeurism case to the State Attorney’s Office over a clip he is said to have recorded of his alleged victim.

Ziegler faced fierce accusations from a woman who said he raped her after she canceled plans to have sex with him and his wife Bridget.

Detectives found a document on his phone which was called ‘THE LIST’ and it had the names of multiple women on it.

His accuser was labelled underneath a sub-heading of ‘F***’, according to police records.

Bridget informed police officers that she previously had a threesome with the rape accuser and her husband.

Text messages from February 2021 show Ziegler told his wife to ‘come home, stop and pick up [a woman] to play again and be crazy’.

It is believed he was referring to the alleged victim who he claimed ‘was an alcoholic, nice person with some issues’.

But Bridget responded that she was worried the woman was ‘going through some s***’ and ‘that she prefers confident empowered people’.

The documents stated that Ziegler said he liked that the woman was ‘close and there was no drama which turns him on’.

‘I just don’t want to feel like we ever take advantage of anyone (I know it’s always been consensual) but she seems… ‘broken’ or like she’s going through some s***,’ Bridget said.

‘I don’t know—that’s the vibe I pick up from her—and my nature is more likely to help her versus … ya know.’

Ziegler then suggested they ‘needed to hunt for someone new’, according to police, and later told his wife that the alleged victim ‘thinks she is hot, and he believes she is only into her’.

The accuser told the police she had planned a threesome with the Zieglers on the day she was raped but backed out.

‘Sorry I was mostly in for her,’ she messaged Ziegler but she told police he turned up at her home anyway and assaulted her.

Police records say Ziegler told detectives he had consensual sex with the accuser ‘approximately one dozen times since they met’ and that they’d had a threesome with his wife twice at their home.

But the alleged victim told officers he ‘had been sexually battering her for years, and she never felt like she could say no to him’.

She added that he climbed through an unlocked window at her home once.

Detectives initially spoke to Ziegler last year and he made Google searches on his phone surrounding their investigation including ‘Sexual battery settlement average’, ‘Subpoena Instagram Vanish’ and ‘Accused of sexual battery and dismissed’.
