  • Rep. Joe Barton will not seek re-election following nude

WASHINGTON - Embattled Texas Congressman Joe Barton announced Thursday that he will not seek reelection in 2018, following recent revelations of a nude photo and sexually suggestive messages that appeared on the Internet.

She's the third accuser to come forward with allegations against Barton, since a graphic nude photo of Barton was posted to social media last week. He described the relationships as consensual.

Barton, in an interview with the Dallas Morning News, said Thursday he is leaving Congress in 2018 because he has "always listened to the people of Texas". "It is time to step aside and let there be a new voice".

While Barton definitely should have been more careful with whom he was sexting, it's pretty disturbing that this was used to take down his career.

Now, in the wake of these scandals, Barton's tenure in Congress is now coming to a close; he's joined a growing list of Republican lawmakers not seeking re-election. It circulated online, and the Texas lawmaker later confirmed he was the man in the photo.

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

He stressed that each relationship was consensual and has since ended.

He said: 'I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. "I am sorry that I let my constituents down".

A powerful Appropriations subcommittee chairman who has served with Barton since 2003, Carter said he had "visited" with his Texas colleague this week to discuss the matter.

In a WBAP exclusive Shyril Small said she was involved with Barton while he was still married.
