Another Woman Comes Forward Alleging Affair with Congressman Joe Barton

Another Woman Comes Forward Alleging Affair with Congressman Joe Barton

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women", Barton said in a statement last week.

Barton, 68, who exchanged nude photos with one woman and sent sexually suggestive messages to another, has represented the suburban Fort Worth district for more than 30 years. It has been a tremendous honor to represent the 6th District of Texas for over three decades, but now it is time to step aside and let there be a new voice.

The announcement came a little more than a week after a nude photo of Barton was posted online, along with a sexually explicit message. "I am not thinking good thoughts at this moment".

Barton is retiring as politicians on Capitol Hill are facing new scrutiny for sexual harassment and misconduct. Barton apologized for the indiscretions that occurred during a "rocky" period with his now ex-wife.

He was divorced in 2015 and has four children.

Barton added that he thought he could still win re-election, but didn't want to put his family through a potentially "nasty campaign".

Barton told the reporter his 12-year-old son Jack asked him not to run. "You have a good record, and you don't need to keeping running to prove that". Both himself and the woman were consenting adults in a relationship-he isn't a predator.

The Texas Legislature passed a law in 2015 that criminalizes revenge porn, Breitbart Texas reported.

After being arrested, the court released Traci Lorraine Aragon from a San Antonio jail on $2,000 bond.

The woman denied that she threatened to make the material public, and she also denied leaking the explicit image of Barton that appeared on the internet earlier that week. In that case, a woman sued her ex-boyfriend after he posted a sex video of her on the internet.
