Right-wing Idaho blogger Summer Bushnell posted altered video of his appearance, blurring his groin “to make it appear as if he exposed himself,” says a press release from Stoel Rives, the law firm representing Posey.The edited video attracted 20,000 views on social media.

People who’d seen it — none of whom had been at the event — contacted local police and urged them to investigate. The City of Coeur d’Alene Prosecuting Attorney’s Office reviewed both the edited and unedited versions and found that the unedited one did not show any genital exposure. “The allegations of indecent exposure, or other crimes cannot be supported by the evidence.
