Former London deputy mayor has given a new meaning to being an Assembly “Member” after accidently uploading pictures of his penis to Facebook for all his followers to see.
Barnes, 66, who was the Conservative member for Hillingdon and Ealing in London uploaded the pictures moments ago in what appears to be a rather drastic error caused by his iPhone’s auto upload settings.
Viewers were clearly disgusted and angry, as some drew parallels between his gaffe and that of former New York Mayor candidate Anthony Weiner.
UPDATE: Mr Barnes told The Metro newspaper: “[It was] utterly and totally a mistake. I’ve been hacked into. I’ve no idea [what happened]. I’m annoyed and shaking with anger.”
“I’m a 65-year-old gay man on his own… It’s not the sort of thing I do. Do you really think I would be that f****** stupid after 30 years in politics?”
