Texas GOP Congressman Joe Barton Apologizes For Nude Picture

Texas State Republican Rep. Joe Barton apologized for a nude picture (below) that he reportedly sent to an unidentified woman, which ended up on social media.

The picture shows the 69-year-old’s large stomach sagging above his penis with the not-so seductive line: “I want u soo bad. Right now. Deep and hard.”

Barton issued an apology notes the Texas Tribune:

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.

It’s not clear who originally posted the image on social media.

A spokeswoman for Barton said that he had no plans to resign and had filed for re-election.
