New Excuse- Rep. Joe " Deadbeat Dad" Walsh: I had ‘verbal’ deal not to pay child support


This guy is really just butt evil. Last time the Deadbeat Dad show was on, our "hero" was claiming he had paid, but darn it, for some reason he forgot to bring his receipts, but when he did, boy whooey, would that stupid Judge be sorry. Whoopsy.

U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) says he hasn’t paid his court-ordered child support because he and his ex-wife reached a “verbal agreement” three years ago that he could stop paying her child support.

Laura Walsh says her ex-husband, elected to Congress last year as a leading voice of the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party, owed her $117,000 in child support and interest.

In a court filing in December, a month after he was elected, she said he stopped paying child support because, he told her, he didn’t have any money.

The congressman, in a court filing Thursday, says he wasn’t making much money, his ex-wife was making good money, and their kids were spending more time with him than with her.


“He reasonably relied on Laura’s representations and conduct, to his detriment,” the court filing says.

Walsh said he and his wife decided not to formalize their “verbal agreement” in court because “Joe and his former wife were both tired of court appearances and the resulting emotional and financial impact on the family. Neither party had the financial or emotional wherewithal to continue the battle.”

Laura Walsh’s attorney denied that.

Yeah, it's all that evil ex's fault Joe, you're a f'ng saint.

    I can tell this child support case has had an impact on Old Joe.  Before this story got legs in the MSM, there wasn't any camera he was unwilling to jump in front of and lie on the president and democrats.  One doesn't see him very much these days.  Good!  I also think that when Lawrence O'Donnell told him he couldn't appear on his show again until he'd taken care of his child support problem, he was embarrassed.   Double Good!!  I imagine that early on he thought that as a bagger he could/say do anything, but he probably didn't think about the fact that running his mouth could result in negative attention which would reveal a real absence of Family Values.
