Anti-Abortion Congressman Scott DesJarlais is Still a Massive Fraud

When we last checked in with Scott DesJarlais, the distinguished U.S. rep from Tennessee's 4th district pictured here with an un-aborted child, he had been recorded in 2000 pressuring his mistress into having an abortion. This was notable because DesJarlais who was elected back in 2010 thanks to support from an antiquated movement called "the Tea Party" is virulently anti-choice. Here, he says so on his website:

"All life should be cherished and protected. We are pro-life."

DesJarlais and his wife got divorced in 2001 thanks to the whole mistress thing and in recently released transcripts, DesJarlais testified that he and his wife mutually agreed for her to have two abortions. Shocking, I know. In the testimony, DesJarlais called the decisions "a very difficult and poor choice."

And yet, a choice! What an incredible concept. Of course, the voters in Tennessee's 4th district haven't seen much wrong with DesJarlais' M.O. of saying one thing and doing another, as he was re-elected to a second term in this past election.
