Re: Roy Exum: Nice People Never Tell
To all who are so judgmental of Dr. Scott DesJarlais, I ask what you would do in the same situation? If you haven't experienced something similar, you don't know. I believe that most anyone could have made the same mistake.
I believe Dr. DesJarlais was only using the abortion issue to prove the lady was not pregnant.
How often do we read about ministers, presidents, governors, teachers and other important people getting caught up in affairs?
It would be interesting to know how many doctors have had relationships with their patients.
Eric Stewart and others who are prone to criticize should read Chapter 8 of the Gospel of John and then decide if they should be casting stones.
Most importantly, Dr. DesJarlais has stood by his promises. He has worked hard, represented his people well, and kept them informed. People in District 4 would be wise to elect him again.

It is a very different age than your adolescence of 50 years ago.
In the case of the physician who represents the 4th district, one more witness collaborates and confirms the stories from the first woman. There might be more over the next few months.

The repugnant DesJarlais behavior is not a mistake, such as taking mom and dad's car without permissions. This is just one of a list of things that make Mr. DesJarlais a scoundrel.
Not one, but two patients, and dare I say that is the tip of the iceberg. Plus he has the chutzpah to not take responsibility, claiming it is an old smear campaign. Desjarlais's credo is abortion is illegal except when the father's legal career is in jeopardy.
Vote him out of office. If you do not do so, you are part of the hypocritical problem. Plus he takes money from the Tennessee Walking Horses Big Lick abusers. Need I say more?
