"Pro-life" physician/Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) supported his ex-wife's abortions, slept with patients


No worries, Republicans, we only notice your hypocrisy on days that end in Y.

Via TimesFreePress.com:

A decade before calling himself “a consistent supporter of pro-life values,” Tennessee physician and Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais supported his ex-wife’s decision to get two abortions before their marriage, according to the congressman’s sworn testimony during his divorce trial.

Obtained by the Chattanooga Times Free Press, the couple’s 2001 trial transcript also confirms DesJarlais had sexual relationships with at least two patients, three coworkers and a drug representative while he was chief of staff at Grandview Medical Center in Jasper, Tenn. During one affair with a female patient, DesJarlais prescribed her drugs, gave her an $875 watch and bought her a plane ticket to Las Vegas, records show.

There he is, another self-described "consistent supporter of pro-life values."
