Rep. Joe Barton, 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 if she exposed his behavior, according to a recording reviewed by The Washington Post.
The woman spoke to The Post after the lewd photo was published Tuesday by an anonymous Twitter account. She shared a secretly recorded phone conversation she had with Barton in 2015 in which he warned her against using the explicit materials in a way that would negatively affect my career.
Besides the recording of the phone call, the woman shared text and social-media messages she exchanged with Barton, as well as a 53-second cellphone video Barton recorded of himself while masturbating. The conspiracy theory website InfoWars obtained a copy of the video and published it Wednesday night, though the video appeared to have been removed from the site several hours later.
The lewd Twitter photo that Barton acknowledged on Wednesday appears to have been captured from that video. The woman said she did not post the image herself. She shared phone numbers for Barton that match his personal and government-issued cellphones. Barton was not abusive or coercive in his interactions, the woman said, but said she felt he was manipulative and dishonest and misleading in his dealings with her and other women.

Calling the Capitol Police is what any regular ole’ American would do if they needed to intimidate a fellow citizen.
Am I the only person NOT sending pictures of my junk to people?
“...was manipulative and dishonest and misleading...”
Unlike many women?
What was she expecting from a pro Politician?
I bet that would be The Washington Post's headline too, had it been a man posting a Democratic Congresswoman's nude photographs on the Internet.
Pack up your kit and leave, Joe. I trust the Governor of Texas to appoint a conservative replacement.
There was a day when the workplace was productive and for the most part one gender. Women stayed at home with children. Shoot me but it worked.
I suspect that today that would just lead to allegations of the same sex perversion. It is such a satan fest everywhere.
What do you wanna bet the MSM gives THIS sex scandal the airtime the democrat creeps are NOT getting?
Congressman Barton? WTF?
Is this your first rodeo?
YOU DO NOT TELL HER ABOUT THE OTHER ONES.
No one wants to see the picture of Joe Barton’s package and no one wants to see Joe Barton’s one Man Show on video.
‘I trust the Governor of Texas to appoint a conservative replacement.’
That’s not the way it works.
Why not just call the person who murdered Vince Foster?
That’s what you’re supposed to do when someone tries to Blackmail you
When she was telling him that she was going to release the tapes and photos I wonder what the price of her silence was supposed to be?
New member of the CSPC....?
Congressional sexual pervert caucus....
Teddy Kennedy honorary chairman emeritus...
The media will obviously target Republicans first, but the current flushing out of pervert politicians will most likely still harm Democrats more in the midterms. The stalling of investigations into Clinton corruption of the last election will also probably result in bad timing for them.
Without knowing the full details(and not wishing to click the link) it could well be. Just goes to show that when details are sketchy, and the headlines are possibly being manipulated by the media, a multitude of interpretations are possible.
