A New Jersey politician who emailed a woman nude photos of himself that were posted on a GOP activist's website says he will resign. In a statement emailed Tuesday to The Associated Press, Cumberland County freeholder Louis Magazzu (MAG'-uh-zoo) apologized to his friends, family and constituents.

The 53-year-old Democrat says he sent the photos to a woman with whom he corresponded online for several years. He says she requested the photos and that he didn't know she was "working with an avowed political enemy."

Magazzu says he's been separated from his wife for about two years. He says he's weighing his legal options.

The pictures appear to show Magazzu standing naked in front of a mirror photographing himself.
