A Washington Post report reveals that Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) threatened a lady who hexed his unlawful bare photos by observant he would report her to the Capitol police if she told others about their interaction.
Barton reportedly became dissapoint when he detected the woman—with whom he was having an affair—was in hit with other women who had relations with him and had apparently shared pithy materials he’d sent her.
The Post obtained a available review between Barton and the woman, in which he says, “I wish your word that this ends.”
“I will be totally true with you,” he continued. “I am prepared if we have to, we don’t wish to, but we should take all this crap to the Capitol Hill Police and have them launch an investigation. And if we do that, that hurts me potentially big-time.”
When the lady asked him to explain what he meant by the threat, he said:
“I would tell them that we had a three-year clandestine attribute with you over the Internet that was heavily passionate and that we had met you twice while married and had sex with you on two opposite occasions and that we exchanged inapt photographs and videos with you that we wouldn’t like to be seen done public, that you still apparently had all of those and were in position to use them in a way that would negatively impact my career.”
In Barton’s chronicle of events, it was the lady who threatened to share annoying photos after he’d finished their relationship.
“When we finished that relationship, she threatened to publicly share my private photographs and insinuate association in retaliation,” he said. “As the twin reflects, we offering to take the matter to the Capitol Hill Police to open an investigation. Today, the Capitol Police reached out to me and offering to launch an review and we have accepted. Because of the tentative investigation, we will have no serve comment.”
There is a possibility the posted photo violates a Texas punish porn law, but the temperament of the uploader is not nonetheless publicly known. The lady Barton threatened told the Postshe had never had any intentions of pity the materials she’d perceived from Barton.
