Joe Barton Apologizes for Nude Photo

Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) released a statement apologizing for a graphic nude photo of him that circulated on social media earlier, the Texas Tribune reports.

From the 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.”

TMZ: “Barton, a Republican, sent the nude photo showing his penis. The Twitter user censored the image, and also revealed a sext that reads, ‘I want u soo bad. Right now.'”
