Shame for Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX)

Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.), who apologized Wednesday for a lewd photo of him that circulated on the Internet, told a woman to whom he had sent sexually explicit photos, videos and messages that he would report her to the Capitol Police because she could expose his behavior, according to a recording reviewed by The Washington Post. [1]

Rod Dreher with the conservation website, The American Conservative, says:

Look, I don’t understand how anyone with the sense God gave gravel does something like this. But a 68-year-old grandfather and senior Republican politician who has run for years on a reputation of “conservative family values”? Joe Barton is a fool and a fraud. If he had a shred of dignity, he would resign and spend the rest of his life trying to restore himself in the eyes of his four children and five grandchildren. [3]
