State health board opens complaint file on DesJarlais

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The Tennessee Department of Health has acknowledged opening a "complaint file" against Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais.

But the file wasn't mentioned this week as the state Board of Medical Examiners met for the first time since controversy hit the physician-turned-4th-District-congressman in October.

A board member said that isn't unusual.
