Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 24, 2017

Texas Congressman Joe Barton has apologized for a leaked nude photo of him that is currently circulating online but says he no plans to resign over it. The Republican from Ennis acknowledged the sexually explicit photo in a statement on Wednesday saying it was taken in recent years when he was separated from his second wife. "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," the 68-year-old said in a statement. "I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down."

because told her he'd have her arrested or something if she exposed his sex life -- while he was married.

So? Revenge porn is illegal in Texas, seems like he would be within his rights to call the police.

I find it all hilarious, but not newsworthy, but keep swinging ....

So, Princess... maybe you'll find this hilarious, but not newsworthy, too?

Ya think?

(don't answer that... there are rules about self-incrimination)

"Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.), who apologized Wednesday for a lewd photo of him that circulated on the Internet, told a woman to whom he had sent sexually explicit photos, videos and messages that he would report her to the Capitol Police because she could expose his behavior, according to a recording reviewed by The Washington Post.

The woman spoke to The Post after the lewd photo was published Tuesday by an anonymous Twitter account. She shared a secretly recorded phone conversation she had with Barton in 2015 in which he warned her against using the explicit materials "in a way that would negatively affect my career.

In a statement late Wednesday, Barton said a transcript of the recording provided by The Post may be "evidence" of a "potential crime against me."

Stuff like this is going to have a chilling effect on our inter-personal relationships.

This woman had NO reason to send out those photos. They were consensual at the time. He was separated from his wife.

Barton did nothing wrong. Looks like she committed a crime.

What crime? No evidence so far she shared them on Twitter - anonymous account. He threatened her because she shared them with other women he slept with. But you're right another do as I say not as I do right wing hypocrite sleeping around while married and sending nudes. Whether or not this is "revenge porn" or not it's a hypocrite caught.

Hey, Bart-Man! You're doing this wrong. NEVER share dick pics with any woman over 16. The young ones have no idea how long 4" is...

What crime would that be Boaz? Retweeting a picture he sent her? Sorry, once you send it you accept the consequences. I hope he gets laughed out of Congress.
