And so-called pro-lifers wonder why we don't want these people making laws that affect us.
WASHINGTON -- A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.
The congressman, Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, was trying to save his marriage at the time, according to his remarks on the call, made in September of 2000. And, according to three independent sources familiar with the call and the recording, he made the tape himself.
DesJarlais, who was provided a copy of the transcript by HuffPost, did not deny its contents, but in a statement released through his campaign characterized it as just another sordid detail dredged up by the opposition. "Desperate personal attacks do not solve our nation's problems, yet it appears my opponents are choosing to once again engage in the same gutter politics that CBS news called the dirtiest in the nation just 2 years ago."

    That is a shame. I love how he said he was trying to save his marriage!

    But this was 12 years ago. I hope his wife didn't have to find out about the affair, etc from the news.

    This is an aside, but on top of everything else, it bothers me that so many people having affairs aren't bothering to use protection. I mean, really.

    ETA: I checked his wiki page and he divorced his first wife in 2001. Court filings reported the affair, but that wiki entry was made today.

    What a hypocrite. So this is where Lifetime movie plots come from.
