ONTARIO – Ontario City Councilor Freddy Rodriguez last year sent an Ontario woman a photo exposing his private parts during an online conversation where they were getting acquainted.

Rodriguez on Sunday admitted sending the picture in April 2020 and said the woman was “stunned” when she got it. He said he subsequently apologized.

“I’m human,” Rodriguez, 39, said in a Facebook video Sunday night. “Before I found my new faith, I was doing what everybody else is doing. I wasn’t doing anything illegal.”

The revelation comes on the eve of an extraordinary special election July 6 in which voters will decide whether to remove Rodriguez as a city councilor. The recall effort . . .
