Texas Weenie Roast


U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, released a statement on Wednesday apologizing for a graphic nude photo of him that circulated on social media earlier this week.

“While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women,” he said. “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.”

It is still unclear how the photo got onto social media, who put it there, or whether its posting would constitute revenge porn, which is illegal under Texas law.

Barton, who announced his re-election bid earlier this month, is navigating in a political environment charged with emerging stories of sexual misbehavior in politics, in business and in the media.


A spokeswoman for Barton said Wednesday that he had no plans to resign and had filed for re-election.

I am going to laugh my ass off when the House Ethics Committee see the original picture and decide to drop it because of insufficient evidence.

  1. I’m already laughing at anyone who thinks that picture is sexy! Why, oh why, would anyone send that pic?

    welcome to jerry springer reality tv ‘merika.

    • That particular Jerry Springer Show would only run commercials for pigs in a blanket instead of full-size hot dogs. They wouldn’t want to upset their Rethug viewers with any kind of comparisons to the subject matter.

  3. Hooo boy . Such is life. It seems that the roaches are coming out of the wood work or in this case, the media in all its glorious forms. I saw a bit ago that Barton had threatened the woman if she sang. He was going to call Capitol hill cops. How ludicrous is that? Did his dumb ass think that was would ever fly and that the woman would remain silent forever? I can’t wait to see what else is coming down the pipe line. It seems out government is rife with perverts. pedophiles and pip squeaks. Moore seeking election, Trump as president now with a past history, Clinton as president, Frankel, Clowyers (sp ?) and Barton.

    • Clinton fooled around with a very willing participant. Monica Lewinsky has said she is the one who initiated everything. Franken does not deserve to be included with the rest, even if the allegations are true (and I don’t believe most of what has been alleged). I wouldn’t include Barton in with Weinstein, Cosby, Twitler, Moore, etc. either. He was in a consensual relationship with some woman desperate enough to screw that disgusting pig. It makes me want to vomit thinking about it, but he didn’t do anything illegal. That is, until he used the threat of the Capitol Police going after the woman. If there is a serious offense here, it is that.

      If you want to send a naked picture of yourself to someone, you are free to do so. However, don’t try to whine later on that your privacy was impeded upon when the other party shares the pic with anyone else. Bottom line, if you are not feeble-minded, not hacked, of legal age, not sending pics to someone who is underage, and not forced to pose for naked pictures, then you should not have any recourse if someone shares a naked picture of you that you decided to send..

      The only ones I feel sorry for in this case are all the people who work in the Capitol who pass Barton in the hallways with that pic in the back of their minds.
