Rep. Justin Moed was a no show in the Indiana House of Representatives Thursday.
The Democratic lawmaker from Indianapolis had an excused absence, yet his recent sexting scandal was still a hot topic for legislative leaders.
And the problems continue to grow for Moed. A website called thedirty.com published more of the graphic text messages he sent to porn star Sydney Leathers. And, Inside Edition is now reporting on the scandal.
Justin Moed hasn’t been to the Statehouse in days.
“I think any reasonable person would think that he needs a little bit of time to himself,” said House Minority Leader Scott Pelath, “and I certainly understand that and I think the members of the chamber understand that.”
And while leaders in the General Assembly expressed compassion they also know that the scandal hurts all of them.
