    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.

    Well no spit lady, he is a politician.
    "I was in it for the politics connection," the woman said of their relationship. "I was kind of unwittingly drawn into it with him because of just the amazement of having a connection to a congressman."

    Congressmen have groupies. Who knew?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
