The Republican congressman, Joe Barton , apologized on Wednesday after a photograph went viral where he appears totally without clothes.
Barton spoke before the Texas Tribune and indicated that, although separated from his second wife, before his divorce he had sexual relations with other women.
The 68-year-old Republican said that each relationship was consensual and that since then, without specifying the date, he has not done something similar.
“I regret not having had a better trial in those days. I regret that I have disappointed my constituents, “said the parliamentarian.
The explicit photograph, which appeared on an anonymous Twitter account, was published a few days after Barton announced his proposal to re-elect himself. .
This image generated strong criticisms about the behavior of the congressmen; however, the spokesman told The Dallas Morning News that he does not plan to resign.
Joe Barton, 68, joined the United States House of Representatives in 1985. He was born in Waco, Texas, had his first participation in elections in 1984 and is one of the oldest members of the district of Texas.
