The scandal surrounding Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn) is growing. Information previously obtained by FreakOutNation on October 10th, resulted in evidence of DeJarlais’ affair with a patient; the transcript provided, unearthed a back and forth with DeJarlais prompting the lady into an abortion. For the record: DesJarlais is a ‘pro-life’ tea party backed Congressman. Rep. Scott DesJarlais is a doctor and was elected in 2010 as part of the Tea Party wave that swept the House.
Previously DeJarlais was plagued with allegations of violence in his 2001 divorce, and somehow, was still voted into office by ‘pro-family’ Tea Partiers who breathed a breath of stale air into the Republican party. At the present time, DesJarlais is seeking a second run for Congress.
Another woman has just acknowledged having a sexual relationship with the Congressman, while under his care. The woman describes him as using illicit drugs, and “all that stuff.”
“In a prepared statement Saturday, his campaign did not dispute any specific allegations by the woman, instead condemning “personal smear campaigns that hurt families” and “have no place in politics.”
So, by not disputing the transcript (which I read myself and it’s pretty damning) or this woman’s claims, he’s asserting that uncovering his hypocrisy, “Hurts families.”
The second woman described DessJarlais as “the nicest guy” and continued on to note that they smoked marijuana during their relationship and remembered DesJarlais prescribing her pain medication on dates at his home.
“His biggest thing that’s completely unethical is him just picking up women while he’s a doctor,” the woman said in an interview last week. “I mean, seriously, that’s his big no-no. … He’s just a hound.”
The woman said the affair lasted six months and included mutual illicit drug use.
“Scott was just a regular guy,” she said. “He smoked. I mean, he smoked pot. He [did] all that stuff.”
The woman states that she kept DesJarlais as her doctor for some time after the affair, but sought a different doctor after he kept trying to rekindle their relationship in settings outside his office.
On Saturday, Eric Stewart’s campaign manager Kevin Teets said the woman’s account would continue to bolster his boss, who for the first time eclipsed DesJarlais in the most recent fundraising period.
“It’s clear from this further revelation that Scott DesJarlais has many issues. We hope he’s able to get the help he so clearly needs,” Teets said. “However, the people of the 4th District deserve a congressman like Eric, ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work tackling the many issues facing our country.”
Eric Stewart is running against Rep. DesJarlais and seeks to accomplish bipartisan goals in Congress. Stewart’s focus is on education, the economy and jobs, and helping working families as well as retirees.
