Ya-all know Joe Walsh, don't ya? He's The Tea Party backed freshman representative from Illinois who ran on a platform of fiscal responsibility. He's on record as having stated, "I won't place one more dollar of debt on the backs of my kids," more than once. He's also got a video on his web site in which he refers to Obama "spending money like a drunken sailor for three years." Well, it turns out that the congressman has had some financial trouble of his own in the past. His alleged financial problems made headlines while he was campaigning last year, when former campaign field director Richard Cape claimed he would "spend, spend, spend uncontrollably." (Like a drunken sailor, perhaps?) His campaign manager quit and sued for $20,000 in nonpayment, and two other staffers who quit accused him of not properly disclosing a 2008 home foreclosure and traffic citations to the public, taking their grievances public. Walsh also bounced checks, including one to a Republican fundraiser. A Walsh spokesman at the time called it a smear campaign by disgruntled workers and said the congressman had learned from his financial struggles, including the foreclosure. Maybe not.....apparently he hasn't learned a thing since it turns out his ex-wife is suing him for back child support in the amount of $117,437.00. (And it is with great restraint that I am not telling you about the two international vacations he's taken or the $35,000 he loaned his own campaign while telling her he was out of work, between jobs and unable to support his own children.) Joe Walsh Sued For More Than $100,000 In Child Support It's a damn good thing he won't place one more dollar of the country's debt on the back of his children since one more dollar of his own debt is probably enough to assure their starvation.
