The 23-year-old, high-school dropout at the heart of the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal has decided to publish a how-to guide on how to seduce your favorite politico.
"Why does having a sexting affair with a married man or even doing porn make someone a 'bad person'?" Sydney Leathers writes in "10 Secrets for Seducing a Politician."
"Give me a break. I'm not a war criminal. I'm a human being who has made certain choices, some of which involve my sexuality," she continues. "Yes, I've made thousands of dollars from sugar daddies. So?"
Miss Leathers goes on to say that "in case anyone wants to be as stupid as I was," here is a guide on how to seduce a politician.
"Indulge his crazy alter-ego, and whatever you do, don't laugh at him. When in doubt, use a smiley-face and tell him you actually mean it," she said."Figure out his weaknesses early on. If he's insecure, you've hit gold. Then torture him by playing hard to get.
"#5: Make him jealous and then switch it up and make him feel secure. Kind of like '48 Laws of Power.' Politicians are in it to win it so always be in 'flirting campaign mode.' "
"Find a horny non-politician to finance all the expensive shoes and lingerie pics you're sexting your politician boyfriend," she continues. "Alternate between innocent and vague, then dirty and specific, and occasionally throw in a mention of something political he did."
Miss Leathers thrust herself into the limelight when she leaked Facebook messages between herself and the New York City mayoral hopeful. Since the scandal broke, she's starred in her own solo sex tape, appeared on several talk shows, and there is speculation of a book deal and a music video.
In her blog, Miss Leathers claims she and the disgraced congressman contacted each other as recently as April 12.
