State house candidate once posed for Playboy

SPOKANE — A Democratic candidate running for a seat in the Washington state Legislature says she doesn’t regret posing for a topless photo for Playboy 17 years ago.

Amy Biviano told The Spokesman-Review that her pictorial in a “Women of the Ivy League” issue while she attended Yale University was a confidence-building experience

Biviano is challenging Republican Rep. Matt Shea for the 4th District House of Representatives seat, which covers Spokane Valley. She trailed Shea, a conservative Republican, by more than 20 points in the August primary.

The topless photo was revealed Friday by a conservative website called Western Journalism Center.

According to her website, Biviano is a small business owner and teaches Sunday school at Bethany Presbyterian Church
