DesJarlais Supported Ex-Wife's Abortions

Documents obtained by the Chattanooga Times Free Press finds that Tennessee physician and Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) supported his ex-wife's decision to get two abortions before their marriage.

The Tennessee lawmaker has described himself as "a consistent supporter of pro-life values."

The couple's 2001 trial transcript "also confirms DesJarlais had sexual relationships with at least two patients, three coworkers and a drug representative... During one affair with a female patient, DesJarlais prescribed her drugs, gave her an $875 watch and bought her a plane ticket to Las Vegas, records show."
