Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 30, 2017

Texas Rep. Joe Barton has announced he will retire, after a nude photo of him circulated online and it was revealed he had exchanged sexually charged messages with a supporter. The announcement Thursday by the veteran Republican came after a Texas newspaper revealed the Facebook conversations Barton had with tea party activist Kelly Canon in which Barton sometimes steered the chats to inappropriate topics, such as asking if she was wearing panties.

A righty with some degree of shame. He's probably being pushed to "retire" because he's just too decent for the current GOP.

Why is he retiring? Repubs don't care about this stuff. You can be a child molester and they'll still support you. You can brag about sexual assualt and be elected president.
This horndog should just say FAKE NEWS! MEDIA BAD! HILLARY! and the morons in texas would re elect him for sure.
