Over the past year, “family values” Republicans have proven time and time again that they are total hypocrites. The long list of GOP lawmakers caught with their pants down so to speak shows that these troubled souls are willing to lie to the American people to win their votes.
The latest Republican to get busted is Congressman Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee. DesJarlais campaigned as a pro-life Republican, yet in real life, he had no qualms about paying for his sexual partners’ abortions. The former Dr. DesJarlais has a long history of sleeping with his patients and his assistants. His ex-wife had two abortions while they were married.
With all of the other sexual harassment scandals grabbing headlines, DesJarlais slipped under the radar until now. The congressman openly said that he paid the sexual misconduct fines imposed by the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners in 2013.
The Daily Mail contacted two of the patients DesJarlais slept with nearly twenty years ago. One patient stated, “This happened nearly 20 years in the past. That’s where it needs to stay.” She was 24-years-old when she slept with Dr. DesJarlais.
Dr. DesJarlais once prescribed a mistress the now-banned painkiller Darvocet. He also took her to Las Vegas where he bought her an $875 watch, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
