Don't act so smug, Members of Congress. We know there are some of you out there who, like former Sen. John Edwards, (allegedly) have a sex tape. And just like the sex scandal-plagued North Carolina Democrat, it will come back to haunt you. [IMGCAP(1)]Fortunately, the nice folks over at the online magazine Slate have come up with helpful advice on how to go about destroying a sex tape. As Slate notes, Edwards' former mistress and baby mama, Rielle Hunter, allegedly tried to destroy the naughty video by pulling the tape out of the cassette. That didn't work — former Edwards aide Andrew Young reveals in his new book, "The Politician," that he and his wife were able to restore the video and watch it. So how do you actually destroy a sex tape for good? Slate advises burning it, crushing it or shredding it. Submit your hot tips, juicy gossip or comments here. Can't get enough HOH?
