SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Navy has released a San Diego commander's flirtatious cellphone texts and emails that were sent to female sailors under his command.

U-T San Diego reported Wednesday ( that the Navy released the messages that led to the removal of Cmdr. Allen Maestas in response to the newspaper's Freedom of Information Act request.

Maestas was removed May 16 from his post as the second-in-command of his unit because the Navy said the messages were inappropriate for a senior-subordinate relationship.

In one of the texts, Maestas says "I'm jealous u r in (pa)jamas. I wish I could join u."

He also sent texts asking the sailor to send photos of herself in shorts or "in any pose."

Maestas told Navy officials that stress from deployments made his professional standards slip.
