Colbert’s Alpha Dog of the Week: Rep. Scott DesJarlais

The controversy swirling around Rep. Scott DesJarlais made its way to the desk of Stephen Colbert Wednesday night. 

The popular pundit named the congressman his “Alpha Dog of the Week,” after reports last week revealed DesJarlais had slept with a former patient and encouraged her to terminate a pregnancy 12 years ago. 

Colbert’s take ignores a few key developments of the story since it broke-such as DesJarlais’ denial that the unnamed woman was ever pregnant or his claim that a phone call of their conversation was recorded against his knowledge.
