U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais (Reprobate – TN), of the “abortion for me but not for thee” DeJarlaises, apparently has a problem not only with diddling his female patients but also with confusing his home for his office. Also, marijuana:
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.”
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.”
Lots of hypocrisy to go around here, but it’s worth noticing that the guy that wants to take choices away from women doesn’t seem to mind them making what he would call bad choices – so long as they do so WITH HIM.
Ain’t that the Republican way?
