As you’d expect of a GOP congressman from Tennessee, Scott Des Jarlais is staunchly anti-abortion.
He’s also just about the biggest hypocrite you’ll find anywhere.
While married to his first wife, Des Jarlais, a physician, had affairs with two of his patients, three of his co-workers, and a saleswoman for a drug company. When one of the patient mistresses told him she was pregnant, he aggressively pushed her to have an abortion, and there’s a recorded phone call of that conversation.
His first wife also had two abortions during their marriage with his full support.
Despite all the icky revelations, Des Jarlais has no plans to resign.
And in Arlington, VA, Gen. David Petraeus is thinking, “WTF?”
