WASHINGTON — A sex tape featuring Virgin Islands Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett and her husband was briefly posted online by hackers before being removed, the former federal prosecutor said today.

A topless photo of freshman Rep. Plaskett (D-VI) was also circulating online, according to Politico.

“Private photographs shared between my husband and me, as well as a private playful video of our family, including one of our children, were illegally obtained and disseminated via the internet,” Plaskett said.

“To say my family and I are greatly upset would be a tremendous understatement. As a mother I am outraged that one of my children was exploited in such a way.”

The pol suspected she was the victim of dirty political tricks two weeks before the Virgin Islands holds a primary.

“This incident shows that there are some people who will go to any length to degrade a woman who refuses to play their games and will try to besmirch my good name by any means necessary,” Plaskett said in a statement.

The sex tape was online Wednesday night before being pulled down, according to Politico.

Plaskett’s office said the FBI and Capitol Police were investigating the swiped video and other material.

Richard Motta, Plaskett’s chief spokesman, took issue with the way the Virgin Islands Free Press described the controversy.

“I wanted to make an important clarification re: the reporting about Delegate Plaskett today,” Motta said. “The tape in question is not a Porn Tape or a Sex Tape like you’d find on somewhere like hdtubemovies. No one in the video is engaged in any sexual act. “

As the territory’s at-large congressional district representative, Plaskett can vote in committee and participate in debates but not vote on the House of Representatives floor in Congress.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
