    Tea Party Congressman Walsh Sued for Child Support: Chicagoist

    8th District Rep. Joe Walsh, the freshman congressman whose emerged as one of the hardliners in the debt ceiling debate and as a politician who constantly preaches fiscal responsibility, is being sued by his ex-wife for unpaid child support. Well, that can be embarrassing.

    Anybody can sue. It doesn't mean he is in arrears. Not as bad as going into the nut house for parading around in a tiger suit.

    What do you care? Why are you defending him? Because he’s a fellow republican? That’s almost as lame as your attempt at a deflection.

    From the sound of it she is trying to get a retroactive increase in child support. It does not appear he is actually in arrears.

    I would defend the guy for the simple fact that he took the time to sit down with myself and fellow lobbyists, listen, understand, and offer support.

    Rep Wu was parading around in a tiger suit and harassing women for years and it never resonated in Soros's MM or the mainstream news. Ask yourself jonsie? Why would a personal law suit between ex-husband and wife regarding child support be important to democrats?

    That's a piss poor link.

    This lacks far to many facts for anything but knee jerk assumptions and accusations.

    On par with the OP's standards though.

    shame on me, I should have known better.
