The Tennessean to DesJarlais: "Resign Now"

Today's Tennessean joins the rest of the world (minus a few from the flaky party) by calling for embarrassment Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn) to resign now: 

[T]here are lies, and there are lies. U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais deliberately deceived the voters of the Fourth Congressional District in the closing weeks of his successful re-election campaign. And because of that, he should resign immediately...

Doctor, you have lost all credibility as a public servant and a medical professional. Do right by the Fourth District and the people of Tennessee, and preserve a last shred of dignity in the process. This controversy that you have created will not “blow over.” Resign now.
