Texas Rep. Joe L. Barton, the dean of the Texas delegation, is now unsure if he will run for re-election, after a nude photo of him was posted on social media.
“While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women,” Barton said in a statement to the Texas Tribune on Wednesday, regarding the photo. “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.”
