  The Coalition for a Constitutional Senate says U.S. Senate candidate Joe Carr lifted phrases and entire sentences from a conservative research think tank’s website in response to a political questionnaire. 

Carr tells The Tennessean he did some research, wrote down his answers, and says he thought he was pretty clear that those thoughts and ideas were not completely his own. 

Last November, Tennessee's Fourth District Congressman Scott Desjarlais coasted to a 12-point victory over Democratic challenger Eric Stewart in Desjarlais' first re-election campaign.  That's despite revelations that the pro-life physician had participated in sexual relations with some of his patients and had encouraged one to get an abortion.
