Washington sex blogger Jessica Cutler - aka Washingtonienne - has reportedly signed a $300,000 book deal with HyperionDisney.
Cutler formerly worked sorting mail for Republican Senator Mike DeWine but was shown the door after using Congressional computers to write her now-legendary blog. The diaries recount Washingtonienne's sexual shenannigans on Capitol Hill, including fumblings with an unnamed Bush administration appointee. She also apparently sold herself like a two-bit hussy to supplement her meagre $25k salary.
Cutler's agent told the New York Times that the book deal was in the "substantial six figures." Wonkette.com is a little more forthcoming, noting:
About that Washingtonienne book deal: We hear the bidding started Tuesday at $75K, based on a 25 page proposal (described a "pretty f***ing twisted"). A dozen houses went for it, and she wound up with a cool $300-f***ing-000.
And she still owes us for drinks!
Cutler will also pose for the November issue of Playboy, according to the NYT. No more cut-price sexual favours between sorting mail for this go-ahead girl, it's clear. ®
