CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A transcript from Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais' divorce case is being released but lawyers said the public may not see it before Election Day. Attorney Gerard Stranch, who represents the Tennessee Democratic Party, and DesJarlais' attorney, Harvey Cameron, said Monday they reached an agreement to release the transcript. Stranch said the DesJarlais camp won approval from a judge to withhold the document until the full transcript is ready.
