Rep. Joe Carr Denies He's 'Morally Superior' to DesJarlais

That crafty Joe Carr finds a way to point out the moral failings of Congressman Scott DesJarlais without looking like a mudslinger in a fundraising letter that just landed on our desk. The Lascassas state representative is raising money to challenge the philandering physician in next year's party primary. In the letter, Carr writes:

And let me be clear: I'm not a better or worse person than anyone running for this seat. I am not morally superior, nor will I be portrayed to be morally inferior. That judgment is reserved only for our Creator.

Then Carr asks for cash, preferably the $2,600 limit, he says.

Every gift of any amount is sincerely appreciated! In return, I pledge to uphold the spirit of our Founding Fathers, be a champion of our individual liberties and state sovereignty, and to take my version of the Tennessee fight straight to Washington.

So Joe Carr and Scott DesJarlais arrive together at the Pearly Gates. What would St. Peter say?

Update: In Washington, Republicans hold fundraiser for DesJarlais.
