UGH: Texas Republican apologizes after LEWD and NUDE photo of him surfaces on Twitter…

There are no sexual harassment allegations being leveled at Texas Republican Joe Barton, but someone posted a nude photo of him on Twitter and it’s disgusting. He’s now apologizing:

BUSINESS INSIDER – Texas Rep. Joe Barton, a Republican, apologized after a nude photo of him began circulating on the internet this week.

“While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women,” Barton told the Texas Tribune. “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.”

“You’re as aware of what was posted as I am,” he said. “I am talking to a number of people, all of whom I have faith in and am deciding how to respond, quite frankly.

The image was posted along with a screenshot of a text message purportedly sent to the woman with whom Barton had a relationship. The Twitter account that posted the images claims to be being “harassed” by Barton and having additional, unreleased footage of him performing lewd acts, according to TMZ.

I’m not posting the censored photo here but you can click over to TMZ if you really want to see it. But I guarantee you you’ll regret it if you do.

I just don’t understand why men think pictures of their genitalia is something women want to see. Its creepy and disgusting. (Yes, I know I’ve called it disgusting twice. That’s because it is!)
