Scott DesJarlais watch

November 20, 2012 - Harry Eagar
It's now been 5 days since sworn testimony by Tea Party Republican family values congressman Scott DesJarlais revealed that he is a serial abortionist, liar and flouter of medical ethics. DesJarlais has not been heard from.

But some Tennessee Republicans see an opportunity to investigate Barack Obama.

You read that right. Not since the voters of my home county, Hamilton, re-elected Bookie Turner sheriff while he was serving a term in his own jail have Tennessee voters displayed more loyalty.

Times Free Press reporter Chris Carroll had this today:

"Other Republicans on the state executive committee, all of whom said they consider themselves anti-abortion, said issues from 12 years ago -- even the congressman's sworn testimony -- aren't relevant now.

"Tim Rudd, a Realtor who resides in Murfreesboro, said the media should 'get off DesJarlais' and investigate President Barack Obama's background, education and 'what makes him tick.'

" 'We're talking about a personal issue in his former marriage,' Rudd said of DesJarlais. 'That did not form the man he is today.' "

I love Tennessee politics.
