Texas congressman apologizes after nude photo of himself circulates online

Texas congressman apologizes after nude photo of himself circulates online”

Barton, a Republican, sent the nude photo showing his penis. Nothing in the texts so far released indicates harassment or non-consent on the part of the recipient, the identity of whom is unknown.

The 68 year-old Republican from Ennis says each relationship was consensual and has since ended.

The photo, posted anonymously on at least one website on Monday, has been making the rounds on Twitter, mainly through an anonymous account purporting to belong to a "100 percent Trump supporter".

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women", the 68-year-old grandfather, who was divorced in 2015, said in a statement to the Texas Tribune. "Right now" and a couple other words that I'll let you Google for yourself.

"I am talking to a number of people, all of whom I have faith in and am deciding how to respond, quite frankly", Barton said.

In Barton's home state of Texas, there are so-called "revenge porn" laws that punish individuals for leaking private photos.

While Barton announced this month that he plans to run for re-election, he told the Tribune he is now reconsidering.

Barton, the former chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce committee, joined the House in 1985 and is the longest-serving member of Congress from Texas.
