Missouri State Rep. Mark Parkinson (R) found himself in an awkward spot Monday when a comical picture of a giant penis was posted to his Twitter account.
The Daily Dot first reported on the tweet, which was quickly taken down. PoliticMo writer Eli Yokley managed to grab a screenshot of the tweet before it was removed:

Parkinson followed the awkward tweet up with an apology, saying he'd never seen the image before.
Obviously, I need to change my twitter password. Random pics and tweets are being sent that I have never seen before. Apologies!

Parkinson is definitely not the first politician with penis problems on Twitter. Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) was dogged by sexting scandals while both in Congress and running for mayor of New York City.
