TX congressman Joe Barton shows us what no one wants to see

House Representative Joe Barton (R-Ennis) has apologized for sending sexually explicit photos and videos to an unnamed person on Twitter.

The anonymous Twitter user claims to also have several videos of Barton masturbating, and is releasing the damning content claiming he/she is being "harassed" by Barton.

"You're as aware of what was posted as I am," the House Rep said in an interview.  "I am talking to a number of people, all of whom I have faith in and am deciding how to respond, quite frankly."

In an attempt to justify his actions, he further explained:

"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." 

While the 32-year House veteran may have crossed some ethical boundaries, the woman's posting of the picture of representative may actually constitute revenge porn which is illegal according to Texas law.

Barton is currently reconsidering his run for re-election.
