Scott, Andy Sher's article certainly omitted the ultimate findings of the Court. A reporter should not slant an article. That should appear on the editorital pages. Mr. Sher needs to report all of the facts and not just allegations. In the pleadings in a case I can allege almost anything but I have to prove such state...ments to be successful. This did not occur in your case. I do hereby accuse Mr. Sher of bias reporting. Let him prove me wrong since my proof is in his article. Harvey

Just FYI. This was posted on Dr. DesJarlais' Facebook page. Davis is desperate!

Well...you haven't looked at the same man I have! I've seen lots of things in the man's eye, but never crazy. I've seen pride, compasion, love and hurt in them. This would be for his family, friends and his country. These things, if you know Dr. DesJarlais, are the things you would see! The first time he went to DC, he came back with so much pride and excitement in his eyes that it matched few I had ever seen. He is truely trying to make a difference and bring our country back to the people. He is exactly what District 4 needs!

Is this false? Did his wife make it all up?

Back in November 2000, DesJarlais' wife sought to obtain sole possession of the couple's home and said she was forced to leave after her husband became violent. DesJarlais was accused of "dry firing a gun outside the Plaintiff's locked bedroom door, admission of suicidal ideation, holding a gun in his mouth for three hours, an incident of physical intimidation at the hospital; and previous threatening behavior ... i.e. shoving, tripping, pushing down, etc."
