Am I the only one bothered by this man's hypocrisy? I'm not saying I'd have voted for the other candidate either, but can we recall this vote?

It is likely he will have to step down - seeing as he was reelected, the pubs will appoint another pub to replace him.

I am sitting within sight of the hospital he worked at right now - from what I'm hearing...he's probably gonna be disciplined by the board of doctors (whatever it's called) from the state and could lose his license.

If he was a dem, this would be none of our business and bringing it up would be a war on women's rights.

Why are democrats divorces always sealed and off limits but a rep is is an open book

He was my Congressman before the redistricting for this last election, so I watched his voting record for his first term pretty closely. The really sad thing (or I should say one of the really sad things) is that he pretty much had the kind of record that we, as fiscal conservatives and Constitutionalists, are looking for in our Representatives. As has been revealed, his personal life runs counter to most everything I believe in however. Hopefully he will have a strong, conservative opponent in the primaries in 2014 that people can get behind if he does not step down before the next election. I don't have any say in it anymore since Marsha Blackburn is my Representative now.

His being held up for public scrutiny and hopefully being held accountable is a good thing, but it is unfortunate that the Democrats are generally not held to the same standards.

Fellas, he's running on a pro-life, pro-family platform. If it were a gay democratic pro-choice senator, you're right. It wouldn't be hypocrisy.

Ironically, he didn't do anything illegal in spite of what young and free implied.

If he didn't run against the things he's done it wouldn't be hypocrisy.

We could probably find somebody who runs against gun rights and secretly has a gun. That would also be hypocrisy...

Instead of being disgusted by his hypocrisy, it looks as though several of you would rather overlook it since he's the conservative candidate...

I have said this before.

I would vote for a Chimpanzee from the planet Zaragon if he pledged to uphold the constitution with every vote and backed it up.

It appears that Dj's personal life was quite the mess 10+/- years ago. Perhaps he learned from his mistakes and is a changed man?

The reason why a persons history is important is that it is an indicator of future behavior. It APPEARS that DJ's current behavior is quite different from his past behavior.

I can only hope he has learned from his mistakes, grown as a person, and will continue to lead a better life....but that isn't really my business. What IS my business is his voting record and his FUTURE voting inclinations.

Hypocrisy is doing one thing *while* saying another.

I think it's a stretch to call it hypocrisy when he DID (or said) something ten years ago and does/says something different NOW.



More importantly - has his voting reflected what the claimed when he ran? So far, it seems so.

Dj's political mistake was that he should've said he did it, regrets it and now has set out to change his ways. But he called the accusers liars. Now, he looks like a complete politician.

No, his behavior was already condemned by some on here during the campaign.

While I do not support any actions he did in the past. I think it is very comical that the same people who are trying to smear him are the same people who supported the dem's. Like one who can not practice law because of perjury while in office.

I think he should account for his transgressions to the people he wronged and God. As far as the job he is doing in office that is what I want to know now on if he can stay in office.

It's not a smear. We are taking his political stance and comparing it to his personal life based on court records. Not innuendo or heresay but sworn testimony. The problem is total hypocrisy. You portray yourself in your commercials as a pro-family, anti-abortion politician and your life directly contradicts this. He has no moral compass and has possible psychiatric problems. The most important thing to him is him. He is the type of politician to turn on his constituents and "his principles" in a heartbeat if it would benefit himself. It's not rational to scream about one politician's personal trangressions while defending another based solely on party affiliation. That makes one no better than a Clinton supporter.

As far as I'm concerned, he has no business being in politics and he certainly doesn't have my support. He blew that privilege years ago by being a schmuck. It's great that he's decided not to be a male slut anymore, but my hope would be that there are more deserving, better leaders than him in the district that could and would carry the conservative flag just as well and not have the embarrassing, unethical baggage that Dejerlais has. Republicans who support him are no better than Clinton supporters or Marion Barry supporters, in my opinion. If Dejerlais is the best Republican candidate the district has to offer then is a pretty sad and pathetic district.

Odd how that works.

Barry Soetoro can run around with Anti American Communists, admit he sold drugs and snorted cocaine, attend a racist church for 20 years, and STILL support those radical viewpoints, and it is a moot point....but someone who claims to be a conservative is found to have a less than stellar past, and we never give him a chance to do ANYTHING?

Seriously?


Yes, we are to judge America's leaders by their past and present actions. Obama should have been judged the same, but for whatever reason a majority of the American people like him and Bill Clinton.

Again - if Scott Desjarlais is the best Republican Congressional candidate and leader that the 4th District of Tenneessee has to offer, then the 4th District of Tennessee is pretty pathetic.

You said if he were a democrat he could run a prostitution ring and sell drugs out his house... Both illegal activities...

this is in reference to barney Frank in the 1980's. Except it was a gay prostitution ring.

Up to date? First of all, that was in the 80's. Secondly I don't care about a masshole... which is what barney frank is. Barney Frank is irrelevant to me. Massachusetts is something we have no control over....

We're talking about a rep of Tennessee who has now acknowledged... "sexual relationships with multiple women, including two patients, three co-workers and a drug company representative while he was chief of staff at Grandview Medical Center in Jasper." and two abortions with his WIFE at the time.

That's what I find troubling. These are things he ran against. Kind of like Larry Craig trying to expel BF and then getting caught soliciting... also hyprocrisy.

I'll give you that BF is a slimeball. But I'm still troubled the SD is our current hypocritical rep.

Just wondering - those voicing discontent, did you actually vote for or support him before you knew these things? My guess is - no.

Ok so if I ran for office and stated I am agenst legilizing MJ and am for family values, which both are true. But my past was not so family valued and I have rolled a few. All that are in court records some place. now as far as a better consertitive I am sure there are better ones but not sure any want the job. But I could not vote for a dem exp the close makeup of the congres and how the party is all fallowing the idiots on top.

DeJarlais isn't going anywhere. He will serve his term and if unopposed in a primary he will beat the democrat, again. Why? It is one thing to have made mistakes and regret it. It is something else to be a member of a party that actively promotes and finances abortion and infanticide with no regrets whatsoever. Actually, given his philandering DeJarlais might make a viable democrat candidate for president.

So how many of you people that think he should not be in office are running for some type of office? If you think you are a better candidate then run or find one that will run and support him. Why is it we these ideals on people that run for office that they have to have a spotless record.

Yes in politics we have to pick the best we have available but that was imposed by us as we had to have a king to rule us and we keep making the same mistakes from the beginning.

Well to be honest.... and not really knowing him personally.... His answers and explanations were not real truthful sounding at times... kinda like he was only giving what little of an answer would get him to the nest question. He seemed to skirt the direct questions.... which the whole interview was just more of the same sounding answers.... and not very believable.
