Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner apparently had a soul mate in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Weiner, a Democrat, is now serving prison time for “sexting” underage girls. But lo and behold! Check out this item regarding Republican U.S. Rep. Joe Barton from right here in Texas.
According to The Hill:
Barton’s acknowledgement that he appears in the photo emphasizes that the women he was involved with in the past, one of whom may have shared the photo, were above the age of consent and willing participants.
“Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down,” he continued.
The photo in question is of Barton’s, um, penis. It has been distributed on the Internet.
You know about Weiner. He used the nickname “Carlos Danger” while sharing pictures of himself via Twitter during an earlier scandal.
The most hilarious part of Barton’s mea culpa, though, is this: He references having affairs with “other mature adult women.”
Do you get why I think it’s funny? He said in a statement that he fooled around with “adult” women and not — as it has been alleged about GOP U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama — with underage girls, children.
Man, oh man. This social media stuff seems to get ’em all.
