Tea Party congressman pressured mistress to get abortion

The degree of hypocrisy in the modern Republican Party is mind-numbing.

Far-right Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee is a doctor who was first elected to Congress in the Tea Party jailbreak of 2010. As part of his Tea Party mantra of "limited government", DesJarlais supported outlawing all abortions.

Now it turns out that not only did DesJarlais cheat on his wife with several different women, but he also pressured one of them to get an abortion after he got her pregnant. Not only that, but the woman happened to be a patient of DesJarlais.

DesJarlais's divorce proceedings also allege that DeJarlais held a gun in his own mouth for hours and fired a gun outside his wife's bedroom.

All this from a congressman who claimed on his website to be "pro-life" and "pro-marriage" and "PROUD OF IT."

You do realize that if DesJarlais wasn't a Republican, this scandal would be the end of his political career, don't you?
