'DesJarlais easily won a second term despite revelations that he once urged a patient with whom he was having an affair to get an abortion.' The people of this district deserve the lousy, self-serving, hypocrisy laden representation they will get from this individual.
This happened 12 years ago. Not an issue as he, just like your dear president, have the option to form new opinions. Remember, obama used to be against gay marriage, until he found out a large portion of the population supported them, while he was campaigning.
Why did people vote for this guy, especially Republicans? They condemned Clinton for messing around, yet they knowingly put a guy in office who did the same. Add in the "I pro-life" stance and compare that to what he actually did, and the word hypocrisy comes to mind both for the candidate and the people who voted for him.
The religious right are hypocrites. To make matters worse they are not true Christians.
Abortion bad! Democrats evil! Oh wait, Nevermind...

Interesting when a GOP'er is a flip flopper it's okay but I remember when they had flip flops as a campaign toy to denigrate Dems. Are we sure that this wasn't a Minnesota GOP'er that they were talking about since it is consistent with what they did the last couple of years here in Minnesota.
GOP motto: Do what I say not what I do.
Oops, their cover is blown. The "Pro-Life" people aren't really Pro-Life, they're just Pro-Republican.
Just shows that other states are also capable of electing weak and unpricipled representatives. Congress is a collection of failed lawyers and other " educated" men and women having nothing in common with the average taxpayer.
