    Scott DesJarlais, Pro-Life Republican Congressman And Doctor, Pressured Mistress Patient To Get Abortion

    WASHINGTON -- A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.

    The congressman, Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, was trying to save his marriage at the time, according to his remarks on the call, made in September of 2000. And, according to three independent sources familiar with the call and the recording, he made the tape himself.

    DesJarlais, who was provided a copy of the transcript by HuffPost, did not deny its contents, but in a statement released through his campaign characterized it as just another sordid detail dredged up by the opposition. "Desperate personal attacks do not solve our nation's problems, yet it appears my opponents are choosing to once again engage in the same gutter politics that CBS news called the dirtiest in the nation just 2 years ago."

    That race featured charges culled from DesJarlais' divorce from Susan DesJarlais, which was finalized in 2001. The filing included allegations that he held a gun in his own mouth for hours in one instance and that he "dry fired" a gun outside his wife's bedroom in another.

    Naah they will vote for him.
    they know that even the lowest life Republican is better than the best Democrat.

    That's true.

    When someone like Scott Desjarlais wants his mistress to get an abortion and he will get the taxpayers to pay for it, THEN he's a democrat.

    Democrats make their scumbags resign (Weiner, Spitzer) or cast them out forever (Edwards). Republicans don't.

    That's another demonstration of a fundamental difference between the two parties. The ends always justify the means for a conservative. Licking the heinies of vile hypocrites helps their party, so katz and NOLA are licking those heinies with gusto.

    For what? Saying it's okay to get an abortion. Killer George Tiller kept his license.
