Before you mock Rep. Peter Nehr for sharing half-naked pictures of himself…

For reasons unbeknownst to me, someone has “leaked” pictures that Rep. Peter Nehr took of himself.  I put “leaked” in quotations because Rep. Nehr is the one who has widely distributed these pictures. But not for any untoward reason, but because Peter is very health conscious and extremely proud — sure, maybe too proud — of his body image.

Before you mock Rep. Peter Nehr for sharing these half-naked pictures of himself, keep in mind that Peter overcame a personal battle with diabetes.

After suffering from headaches, migraines, weight gain and being over-medicated, Nehr says alternative medicine and diet saved him.

These pictures are connected to that battle, nothing more.
