  • U.S. Rep. Joe Barton R Ennis Official House Portraits

It is not clear if Parker21333 is the person who received the text messages from Barton, but the person claims they are being "harassed" by the congressman. "I am sorry that I let my constituents down", the statement added.

The photo of a naked Mr. Barton, with his private parts obscured before it was posted, set off waves of speculation in Texas and Washington, where sexual harassment charges are roiling Capitol Hill.

The picture first appeared on an anonymous Twitter account and then began to circulate on the social media platform.

In Barton's home state of Texas, there are so-called "revenge porn" laws that punish individuals for leaking private photos.

Unlike other veteran lawmakers who have retired after their time atop influential committees has come to an end, Mr. Barton had shown no interest in leaving Congress.

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women". Sarah Dodd of Dodd Communications, who is helping Barton respond to the image, confirmed that the image is of him.

"You're as aware of what was posted as I am", Barton told the Tribune.

Asked whether House Speaker Paul Ryan believes Barton should resign, Ryan's spokeswoman AshLee Strong told ABC: "The speaker has spoken to Rep. Barton on this matter". According to the Morning News, he is thought to be another possible Republican House member to retire heading into the 2018 midterm elections.

Barton joined the House in 1985 and is now the longest serving Congressman from Texas.
