TALLAHASSEE, Florida – Senator Lauren Book, who on several occasions told how she got harassed as a child by her caretaker for 6 years or more, has become a victim once again.

After years of hard-working to restore her mental health and heal herself overall, heading a family, running a non-profit firm, and of course, winning a position as a senate, Lauren Book is once again being targeted as someone is threatening her to spread her nude photos.

What’s even worse is when she found out that, after getting stolen, the images were bought online in 2000 and since being traded then.

“I hate that this happened to me,” said Book during an interview with The Associated Press. “I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. But I’ll take it because I know that I can do something about it.”

While dealing with another chapter of life as a victim, this time, Book has decided to seek a new law against such crimes to prevent the rest of the generation from getting victimized.

The Democrat bill, sponsored by senator Book gets its first-ever committee hearing on Tue. If it gets passed, the bill will bolster Florida’s revenge law, by considering it a felony to “steal sexually explicit images from someone’s phone or other digital devices”. Moreover, it would further include disseminating altered photos, deep fakes as a crime.

Book outraged during the interview with The Associated Press as the senator described the international exchange of her stolen photos for money without her consent and knowledge.

While choking back tears and cursing loudly sometimes, Book called it “a sick, perverted subculture that pays more for images of celebrities and elected officials, but which also victimizes women who aren’t well known.”Truth be told, if it weren’t for my children, I would have ended my life,” Book told. “It brought up all of the stuff. All of it that you think that you’ve gotten under your belt, that you’ve fixed it and you’ve changed it and then all of a sudden here it is in front of your face.”
