Democratic Party Files Motion To Unseal DesJarlais’ Records
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Before Tennessee voters go to the polls, a Chattanooga judge will hear a motion to unseal records related to the patient-sex scandal surrounding 4th district representative, Scott DesJarlais.
A motion was filed by the state's Democratic Party, ask that all documents related to DesJarlais' possible unethical sexual relationships with patients be open for review by the voters in Tennessee's Fourth Congressional District.
"DesJarlais has admitted to having sexual relationships with at least two patients," said Party Chairman Chip Forrester. "If there are more patient mistresses, more drug abuse and more prescription pad dates, voters deserve to know about it before they make another mistake on Election Day."
Circuit Court Judge Jacqueline Bolton will hear the case 9 a.m. Monday at the Hamilton County Courthouse.
DesJarlais doesn't dispute the reports, but calls them smear tactics.
