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?
