Tenn.- A political cartoon in a Chattanooga newspaper has sparked a new
controversy around embattled US Congressman, Scott DesJarlais.
Times Free Press printed a cartoon of DesJarlais titled "Character
Assassination"-- depicting him with a gun in his mouth. The artist said it
was a response to DesJarlais calling reports that he had an affair with a
patient and got her pregnant, 'character assassination.'
some of DesJarlais' staffers didn't care for the cartoon and called the editor
of the Times Free Press, saying they'd alerted Capitol Police. The paper stands by the cartoon.
