Apparently it’s going to take a lot more than just her recent resignation to wipe Marina Weisband from Germans’ consciousness.

Weisband, who served as political director of Germany’s Pirate Party until resigning some six months ago, is still getting votes, albeit not the political kind.

Almost 300 respondents to a survey conducted by Germany’s own edition of Playboy magazine ranked the Russian-speaking Jew the country’s sexiest politician.

The 25-year-old Weisband, who immigrated to Germany with her family during the 1990s, and who claims to go to shul on Fridays, stepped down from her position with the Pirate Party in order to focus on completing her psychology degree.

Just prior to Weisband’s resignation, the party was set to become the Bundestag’s third largest force, with 12 percent of the popular vote in polls.

Weisband has yet to visit Israel, but it’s something she plans to do.

“My mother also keeps on raving about Israel and wants to send me there all the time,” she said.
