(Newser) – A porn star who's no stranger to political scandals has been thrown back in the spotlight, this time for sexting with an Indiana state lawmaker. Sydney Leathers, who made headlines in the Anthony Weiner sexting brouhaha, tells Fox News she exchanged sexually explicit picture and text messages with Rep. Justin Moed, a Democrat who went by the pseudonym "Bitch Boy." Leathers told Page Six last week that a politician replied to her ad seeking someone she could "financially dominate" but didn't share his true identity. However, his name was accidentally included in packages of shoes and lingerie he sent to her, Leathers says. "I Googled him and found out he's a lawmaker." She now confirms the politician is Moed, who's engaged.

"I am truly sorry I have hurt the ones I love most with my poor judgment. I am committed to rebuilding trust with my family and my community," Moed says in a statement, per the Indianapolis Star. "I apologize to my constituents and to everyone I have let down." Moed, who was planning to be wed in September, also sent Leathers money through PayPal and a "Fetish Fantasy Series Pink Leash & Collar," according to photos obtained by TheDirty.com. Others show a man's naked behind. Leathers says she never met Moed but his messages showed he was "into some really freaky stuff." In one message, Moed reportedly said, "I am your property to do with as you wish." Leathers says Moed was "displaying poor judgment by sexting me of all people," but politicians "are human, after all." (Click for 30 more X-rated political scandals.)
