U.S. Representative Joe Barton (R), of Texas, has apologized after a nude selfie was leaked online.
Along with the photo of his penis, a screenshot was posted of the Republican congressman’s sext which read, “I want u soo bad. Right now. Deep and hard”
Barton has since released a statement: “While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women. Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.”
Barton has been representing Texas’s 6th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1985, and is a member of the Tea Party Caucus.
