INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana lawmaker is apologizing for what he calls “poor judgment” following an online report that he sent nude photographs of himself to a woman tied to a 2013 scandal involving a New York congressman.

Democratic Rep. Justin Moed of Indianapolis said in a statement Tuesday that he hurt his loved ones and needs to rebuild “trust with my family and my community.”

Moed did not directly address the “sexting” allegations. But his apology followed a report on a website that identified Moed as a “sexting” partner of a woman named Sydney Leathers.

Leathers is a former Evansville-area resident who became known for sexting with former Congressman Anthony Weiner in a scandal that cost him a bid for New York mayor.
