Joseph M. McDade, 75, was issued a summons on a charge of exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor that carries up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

A court date was not immediately set.

Calls to McDade's Fairfax, Va., home and at the Washington lobbying firm where he works were not immediately returned.

McDade, a Republican, served in the House from 1963 to 1999. He did not seek re-election in 1998. He was indicted in 1992 on charges he accepted gifts from defense companies for helping them win lucrative contracts. He was cleared by a jury in 1996.
