Sydney Leathers, infamous for bringing down Congressman Anthony Weiner, has snagged another politician in a sexting scandal. This time it’s Indiana Democratic lawmaker Justin Moed. Leathers spoke to FOX411 via Skype about the shocking sexts and why she attracts men in politics.
FOX411: You met Moed online when you were fishing for someone to financially dominate, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ style. Do you feel like you entrapped him?
Sydney Leathers: I don’t feel like I entrapped him in any way. I wasn’t tweeting, “Hey, politicians! I’m looking for someone to financially dominate.” I didn’t even know who he was until well into it. Until a few weeks into it.
FOX411: What was your reaction when you learned your sexting partner was a politician?
Leathers: To go through that once is weird enough but the second time around was kind of unbelievable.
FOX411: Were Moed’s sexts more shocking than Anthony Weiner’s?
Leathers: A million times more shocking. They made Weiner look very tame, vanilla and boring.
FOX411: You say you began texting with Moed on February 4th and then stopped communication a month later. Why did you stop corresponding with him?
Leathers: The NY Post has ran something not using his name that I had been talking to a politician so I just stopped talking to him and he didn’t say anything at the point so it was kind of obvious it was him. He knew he had been caught I guess.
FOX411: Were you surprised Moed issued a public apology once it leaked to the press?
Leathers: In some ways it’s smart because it doesn’t let the media circus go on and on and on but in other ways, I guess he could have just denied it. Other than some receipts as proof what did I really have but I guess he didn’t want to fight it.
FOX411: The Indiana Democratic leadership says Moed broke no rules, and Moed is saying he won’t resign. Do you think he should?
Leathers: Well, here’s my thing. He really didn’t do anything illegal. Was he doing something stupid by sexting me of all people? Of course.
FOX411: Do you think you attract men in politics?
Leathers: I have absolutely no idea. I don’t know if it’s because I’m actually interested in politics, and that tends to surprise people.
FOX411: You call yourself a part-time porn star – are you still doing it?
Leathers: Umm yeah. I don’t see anything wrong with that. It’s easy way to make money to pay for school. One scene can pay for over a semester of my college including my books and everything, so it’s just not something I feel any shame about.
FOX411: You’re in school studying TV production and broadcasting. Do you think you can get a normal job after all this?
Leathers: I do think I could. If anything I can use it to my advantage. I have made a lot of connections with a lot of different media outlets obviously and I think people are surprised by the fact I’m very normal and I’m smarter than people expect me to be. And it doesn’t play into the whole “She’s an attention-whore” thing considering I really want to get into production and be behind the scenes.
