Deadbeat Dad Joe Walsh Suing To Continue Being A Deadbeat

I don't know if the Tea Party bargained for having this moron be the face of their movement.

Republican Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh loves to show his face on the talking head shows and shake his fist in the direction of President Obama, go as far as calling the President a liar and refusing to attend joint sessions of Congress, something that I believe elected officials are payed to do. No, it's not mandatory but you get my drift.

Well, soon after Walsh decided to put his face front and center on all the cable news channels and call for fiscal responsibility, it was revealed that he was a deadbeat dad, owing over $100,000 in back child support. So much for fiscal responsibility.

When faced with an embarrassing situation as an elected official, a normal person would most likely settle the issue and move on. But not Tea Party Joe. He's doubling down.
Six days after the Sun-Times reported that Rep. Joe Walsh allegedly owes more than $100,000 in child support for three of his children, the McHenry Republican filed a motion seeking sanctions against his ex-wife.
Walsh’s attorneys sought the sanctions against Laura Walsh because they said she had not complied with their request in February to provide them voluminous documentation of her employment and salary records at pharmaceuticals manufacturer Eli Lilly as well as bank statements, tax returns and expense reports.
At that time, Joe Walsh’s attorneys had scheduled an April interview with Laura Walsh and said they needed the extensive documentation to prepare for it.
Laura Walsh’s attorney, Jack Coladarci, called that request “harassment” and said the issue was why Joe Walsh was not paying $117,000 of back child support and interest. Laura Walsh had no corresponding obligation to pay Joe Walsh any support, and so the extensive requests for documents were inappropriate, Coladarci said.
Walsh has set the bar for the definition of "Douchebag." Tea Partiers must be so proud of their choice.
