Another Democrat resigns after sexting photos surface online

New Jersey Democrat Louis Magazzu, a Cumberland County Freeholder, resigned yesterday after nude photos taken with his smartphone surfaced online.

The New York Daily News reports that at least two of the photos showed Magazzu's crotch, two showed him dressed to the nines in a suit, and a fifth showed him waist up without a shirt.

In his statement, Magazzu insisted that the woman he had sent the photos to had set him up.

“I did not know that she was working with an avowed political enemy to distribute these pictures,” Magazzu said, “I have retained counsel to determine what laws may have been broken by the unauthorized distribution of those pictures.”
