‘Family Values’ Legislator Liked to Screw His Patients

Remember Scott DesJarlais, the physician and “pro-family” Tennessee congressman who was caught on tape telling his mistress, who also happened to be his patient, to get an abortion so his wife wouldn’t find out about his affair? Turns out she wasn’t the only patient he had sex with:

On the heels of a sex scandal involving a female patient, another woman has acknowledged having a sexual relationship with physician and U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais while she was under his medical care.

The second woman described DesJarlais as “the nicest guy” and said he cooked dinner for her at their first get-together in 2000.

But she also said 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.”

And the wife apparently found out about this one too because the woman was listed as a potential witness in the divorce proceedings. The head of the Tennessee Republican Party was quoted as saying, “Thank god he was only having sex with female patients.” Okay, not really. But it’s about reached that point, hasn’t it?

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    He’s married, and he brings his mistress to his house?

    Please tell me this guy will be broken of his license to practice (if he hasn’t given it up).

  • Blondin

    Did anybody tell Ken Starr about this?

    @Randomfactor #2 – He majored in animal husbandry, until they caught him at it.

    In related news, Arizona’s AG – who is appealing SCOTUS to allow him to take away domestic partnership benefits – crashed into another car and didn’t leave a note because he was with another woman. He got caught because the FBI was shadowing him because of campaign finance violations.

    It’s always the same with these freaks. And often they are also so ugly that you wonder why anyone would want to sleep with them.

  • Mr Ed

    Sure he had cheated on his wife with multiple patients, smoked pot and misprescribed controlled substances but he is an upstanding member of is committee who has seen the error of his ways. It isn’t like he is an urbanite who should get a mandatory sentence for Possession or proscription fraud.

    Pay, typical Liberal Media! What about the Republicans who are not doing things like this, hmmm?

    @Modusoperandi #9 – Fallacy of begging the question: Are there Republicans who are not doing things like this?

    Or a mortician.

    Somehow a date with a married man at his home where you smoke marijuana and take opiate narcotics like Oxycontin just doesn’t appeal to me.

    Then again, I’m not a Tea Party Republican living in Tennessee. Thank Cthulhu.

  • jnorris

    Did the women’s health insurance cover this? Will ObamaCare cover it? If not, is that why Republicans oppose ObamaCare?

    raven “But she also said they smoked marijuana during their relationship and remembered DesJarlais prescribing her pain medication on dates at his home.”

    She should be pissed. Not only did DesJarlais get in between her and her doctor, he was her doctor.

    I’m pretty sure that qualifies as sodomy in Tennessee.

  • busterggi

    Damned good bedside manners apparently.

  • dingojack

    You guys are waaaay too timid.

    It could have be worse -

    they could be dating Dr Harold Shipman.
