Default Congressman tells woman hed report her because she could expose sex life

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.

The headline is a bit misleading on this. It seems like a case of a predator threatening a victim until you get in deeper. She says the relationship was consensual, but she shared explicit images online from their sexual exchanges so other people would know about him. That’s what he was telling her to stop doing, which sounds more like a case of revenge porn.

People’s private lives are their own business, IMO. Being squicky isn’t the same as breaking the law.
