Here’s something we definitely could have done without…
Shortly after announcing his bid for reelection, a nudie photo of GOP Texas Congressman Joe Barton has found its way onto Twitter.
Barton, who is the longest-serving member of the Texas House delegation, sent an x-rated photo to a woman showing off his
erect penis robust belly along with a text that said, “I want u soo bad. Right now. Deep and hard.”
Even worse, the Twitter user who posted the graphic content says she also has videos (plural!) of Barton masturbating. She says she shared the photos and texts after Barton repeatedly “harassed” her.

Barton, who opposes same-sex marriage, responded to the leak by saying, “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.”
He added, “I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.”
The 68-year-old says he does not plan on resigning.
In 2010, Barton backed the Republican Texas State Party Platform that called for the re-criminalization of sodomy and making gay marriage a felony. He also believes the Bible should be the law of the land, not the constitution.
This begs the question: When does the public stoning start?

If you are sending unsolicited photos of your junk to people that is by definition not consensual.
Where does it say they were “unsolicited”?
mdf1960, right here: “She says she shared the photos and texts after Barton repeatedly harassed her”.
If it was solicited, wouldn’t be harassment.
This article is misinformed. From what I understand the identity of the uploader is currently unknown. We don’t know if it was the original recipient, or even the gender of the uploader. In other words, the person that was harassed may not be the woman who he sent the photos to.
So mdf1960 is correct. There is no proof that the photo was unsolicited (by the original recipient).
Right-wing GOP family values!
The Republicans will support him as vehemently as they have a child molester. They have no values except making sure their big donors are happy. The GOP is bilking the 99%. They need to be defeated and made extinct. Vote! 2018 and 2020 are around the corner. Shame on the so-called Christians who support these lummoxes. The GOP drags everyone down to their low level.
He thinks Christian “family values” are great… for everyone else.
Grown man sent it to women he was dating at the time. I don’t want to see it but maybe they did. Not much of a story here.
You seem to be missing the point that this man is one of those types that thinks that the bible should be the “law of the land” rather than the constitution.
I know what it means and I see it on both sides.
The woman who leaked it said he was repeatedly harassing her and wouldn’t leave her alone. Sounds like a predator. Also, another woman who he had an affair with said he threatened to have her imprisoned if she ever told anyone about the pics and videos he sent her. Not a good guy by any standard.
Ummmmm yeah, or in your case ummmmm No……………Troll elsewhere.
Er, what both sides? The only side I see is a hypocrite who did something stupid, and is now paying the price.
They should use his nude pics in gay conversion therapy.
Kieran…you deserve the award for Comment of the Day!!! ?
LMAO!!! I needed that type of conversion therapy when I was 18.. I wound not only be old but old, fat with a wife and kids…
Funny! Mean, but funny.
As a lesbian I’m hella baffled how my sexuality would be fried if he was a GCT tool.
His tits are huge
You’re right, these pix cannot be unseen.
But guess what? They also should not have been shown on this site in the first place.
I thought that point had been made when nudes of other people were leaked. Or does that principle just apply to young starlets?
Just hypocrites, is that so difficult to understand?
Since when was not showing leaked photos a Queerty policy? And even if it was, perhaps that courtesy “just apply” to non-enemies of gays.
I think he’s a jerk and a hypocrite. And I want him gone from a Congress.
But these pix were sent to someone with whom he was engaged in a consenting adult relationship. She threatened to release them when he seems to have broken things off. It’s called revenge porn; and if memory serves, Queerty has been outspokenly against that as well as against hacking and releasing people’s private pix.
It’s hard to argue for one’s own rights if you’re not willing to defend those same rights for others, even if you despise that person.
Once more, it shows how bigots have double standards (one for me and one for the others).
I think the more they are repressing (sexually or not) others, the more they cannot help doing the opposite.
Yet another story with no gay connection that the gay community apparently could not have survived without.
“In 2010, Barton backed the Republican Texas State Party Platform that called for the re-criminalization of sodomy and making gay marriage a felony. He also believes the Bible should be the law of the land, not the constitution.”
What about this quote from the above article are you incapable of grasping, Mo-Brody?
Brody, nobody forced you to read anything. Get a life, republican troll.
Congressman Joe Barton looks pregnant. He probably just wanted to tell that woman that she is the father. After two divorces, he’s free to marry. Hope the woman who impregnated him does the right thing and marries Josephine.
“the woman who impregnated him”! LMAOOO!
Isn’t this the same idiot who said windmills would stop the rotation of the earth?! Lol…what a tool!
OMG. I’m going to be sick.
