"Deadbeat Dad" Rep. Joe Walsh finally settles child support case


Via the Chicago Sun-Times:

Tea Party favorite Rep. Joe Walsh and his ex-wife Laura Walsh have reached a settlement on her claim that he owed her $117,000 in back child support from years of paying nothing.

Neither side would disclose the terms of the settlement...

Part of the joint statement from Walsh and his ex says, "Having resolved these issues together and cleared up these mistakes in private, we now agree that Joe is not and was not a ‘deadbeat dad’ and does not owe child support.”

Well that's that, then! I guess Lawrence O'Donnell can finally have him back on The Last Word now.

As Taegan points out, "The issue was embarrassing for Walsh, who's campaigned on fiscal responsibility and blasted President Barack Obama on his financial stewardship of the nation." Or to put it another way, Walsh is a big fat hypocrite.

And a hostile, lowlife, bullying loudmouth who thought nothing of insulting veteran Tammy Duckworth with his now infamous, “Female, wounded veteran … ehhh.”

To many of us, he'll always be a deadbeat dad... among other things.
