A top Texas Republican seeking re-election has just come out to apologize for being caught sending nudes and illicit text messages to a woman while still being married to his second wife.
The nude photo shows Congressman Joe Barton sending a **** pic of himself, while sending a message to the woman saying: “I want you soo bad. Right now. Deep and hard.”
Barton now admits that he had “multiple relationships” with women prior to filing for divorce from his wife and told the Texas Tribune he’s not sure if he will continue with his re-election bid.
“I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.”
It’s not sure who posted the images on Twitter, but the user claims to have several videos of Barton masturbating. They also tagged the Twitter accounts of President Trump and Senator Ted Cruz.
The person who released the photos claims he/she is being “harassed” by Barton
Congressman Barton has served in the Texas House for 32 years and is the longest-serving member there.
The story comes out at the same time as interviews with more than two dozen current and former lawmakers and legislative aides reveal that sexual harassment regularly goes unchecked at the Texas Capitol.
