Fiscal Prudence Screamer Joe Walsh Sued For $100,000 in Child Support

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

why can't joe's children just get an acting job like joe?Screeching famewhore Joe Walsh is a Tea Party congressman who is always thrilled to go on the teevee to blow snot about the fiscal irresponsibility of the Obama administration and not so much thrilled about the actual governing process. He is, like Michele Bachmann, mostly notable for being one of the loudest members of the zombie army of hillbilly barbie dolls elected by Teabaggers to perform the ignorant fantasies of disgruntled racist white constituents in front of cameras by yelling about the gubamint in half-baked sentences. He is, however, pretty light on actual legislative accomplishments (which means zero). So is it much surprise that Walsh is accused of serially avoiding paying child support to his ex-wife and three kids to the tune of $117,000? Well here is Joe’s problem with that, he just does not like people asking for a “social safety net.” It is time to reform dependent offspring entitlements!

From an investigation by the Chicago Sun-Times:

Freshman U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, a tax-bashing Tea Party champion who sharply lectures President Barack Obama and other Democrats on fiscal responsibility, owes more than $100,000 in child support to his ex-wife and three children, according to documents his ex-wife filed in their divorce case in December.

“I won’t place one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids and grandkids unless we structurally reform the way this town spends money!” Walsh says directly into the camera in his viral video lecturing Obama on the need to get the nation’s finances in order.

Walsh starts the video by saying, “President Obama, quit lying. Have you no shame, sir? In three short years, you’ve bankrupted this country.”

In court documents, after his ex-wife, Laura Walsh, asked a judge to suspend his driver’s license until he paid his child support, Joe Walsh asks his ex-wife’s lawyer: “Have you no decency?”

Time to start charging for those interviews, Joe! [Chicago Sun-Times]

Several years after [the release of "Don Henley Must Die"], Henley jumped onstage with Nixon at The Hole in the Wall in Austin, Texas, to perform the song. When Henley jumped out of the crowd, the dumbfounded Nixon immediately asked, "Is Debbie Gibson here too?" Nixon later praised Henley in this way: "He has balls the size of church bells!"

It's called fiscal responsibility. He put a stop to his wife and kids' runaway spending by refusing to raise his own debt ceiling. He knows better than anyone that there's no real consequences for a default.

soojank July 28, 2011 at 2:08 pm

You know, those entitled kids wanting things like "clothes" and "food", probably. This isn't paternalism!!!1

Perfectly good Conservatism. He wouldn't want his children to be dependent on him.

PristineODummy July 28, 2011 at 6:12 pm

It destroys the concept of self-reliance. Those little buggers need to learn that handouts aren't available any more, that freedom ain't free. They need to bend over and grab their bootstraps, and … er … never mind.

On another topic entirely, does he look seriously closeted to you?

RavenRant July 28, 2011 at 2:53 pm

Perhaps the nice judge will teach him that there are consequences for default. Or maybe the voters in his district will wise up and convey that message.

Of course, TJ had nothing on old Ben Franklin, who got his bastard son the governorship of New Jersey.

True. Walsh won by only 300 votes. That's not very many licenses to get off the roads. Also, there was a Green Party candidate helping him out, so he can't afford to lose a single voter ID.

BerkeleyBear July 28, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Sweetie, he's not gay. Just because Aaron Schock was seen leaving his office wiping his mouth does not make him gay.

I mean, at least using the rules I learned from watching OZ, that is.

PristineODummy July 28, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Totally. At least he's got my gaydar fluttering about all twinkle-toed.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 28, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Actually, Mr. Walsh should be applauded for thinking about his children. Since he refuses to take care of them and give them any money, it would be immoral to raise the debt ceiling and expect the kids to pay for it.

Of course, if he could just get rid of child labor laws, the problem would work itself out.

Mojopo July 28, 2011 at 5:18 pm

There is a half-muslin guy in the White House (government housing, I might add), in a long-term interracial relationship (with poor children!) and where will this madness end?

Joe Walsh, on the other hand, is out there everyday representing the interests of fame-whoring Deadbeat Dads across America. He isn't afraid to teach children how to survive without his help. That's courage. If and when his political career ever ends, America will welcome him to their TV sets on a reality program, too. The man leads by example! Word.

Nothingisamiss July 28, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Is there a teabagger in his district that will care about this? No, because Joe Walsh is pro-family and against government handouts that will only put a burden on the most productive in society.

MissTaken July 28, 2011 at 3:41 pm

And I'm sure a very high percentage of the male teabaggers in his district owe shitloads in back child support themselves.

Bitch set me up!

Jukesgrrl July 28, 2011 at 6:26 pm

They're all busy trying to figure out how they can manage to get $100,000 behind on THEIR child support. You know the rule, it's only a gravy train if the people on it are poor, female, immigrants, and/or people of color.

horsedreamer_1 July 29, 2011 at 10:36 am

He's also a job creator, since now his ex will need to get two jobs to support his family.

http://forum.objectivismonline.net/index.php?show

Doktor Zoom July 28, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Oh, my. I honestly can't tell if this is sincere, or a parody:

I happened to see "The Muppet Christmas Carol" a while ago, and that film is indeed a monstrous attack on productivity, and material achievment in general. In a sequence of flashbacks, Scrouge is portrayed as having been exceptionally intelligent and self-motivated from a very young age. In one scene, as I recall, he is (implicitly) criticized for standing up to an irresponsible employer who squanders his firm's wealth on revelry.

poncho_pilot July 28, 2011 at 2:47 pm

i'm going with sincere based off of shit i've seen and heard come from objectivists in the past. one almost doesn't need to make jokes about them at all because they really do the job for you. must be what they mean by being "producers".

RavenRant July 28, 2011 at 3:00 pm

They also root for Mr. Potter in "It's a Wonderful Life".

Nothingisamiss July 28, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Thank you for the link. That people have the entirely reprehensible view that Scrooge is a misunderstood "job creator" is jaw dropping. I especially loved (loathed) the commenter who believes:

"Scrooge is a caricature, not a person or even a character. He's often
portrayed as cold, distant, perpetually angry, without an ounce of empathy or sympathy for anyone or anything. His purpose is to accumulate wealth for no reason other than to have more of it. I mean, that's just ridiculous."

Yeah, I mean, no one is out there just accumulating wealth for no other reason than just to have more of it. That would be unthinkable.

I blame Republican women for this one.

This think they can just spread their legs, pop out a few babies and then they're set for life, lunching with the ladies and expecting handouts for the little yard apes.

SpurningBeer July 28, 2011 at 8:04 pm

I believe the house style favors the idiom "poop out a few babies."

Callyson July 28, 2011 at 2:06 pm

Joe and Laura Walsh had been married 15 years when she filed for divorce in December 2002. The thickness of the court file reflects Laura Walsh’s nine years of trying to collect child support and expenses from a man who crusades against compromise. Laura Walsh went to court repeatedly over the past nine years to get him to pay up, sometimes even asking the court to garnish his wages, court records show.
Garnish! Garnish! Garnish!

genxr July 28, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Garnish his celery? Michelle Obama strikes again!

flamingpdog July 28, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Don't know this for a fact, but I'd be truly surprised if Congress hasn't already passed legislation to make their paychecks immune to garnishment.

comrad_darkness July 28, 2011 at 3:48 pm

"When Coladarci called the congressional payroll office to have them enforce a court order withholding $2,164 from Walsh’s monthly check for child support, the payroll staffer “seemed surprised” and said “tsk, tsk, tsk,” Coladarci said."

PristineODummy July 28, 2011 at 6:21 pm

Nothingisamiss July 28, 2011 at 9:53 pm

What we have here is an in the closet spender. i've noticed that these "fiscal" fuckers rarely have their personal spending in order. They bitch endlessly about taxes because they want to deflect any criticism about their own out of control personal spending and because they're selfish shits who want to keep what they didn't really earn.

Why is it that 75% or more of lottery winners end up in worse financial shape than before they won?

BlueStateLibel July 28, 2011 at 2:17 pm

Nicely put. I've seen it over and over, the ones who work the least, always complain that "it's" being taken away from them. As for the lottery winners, I think it's mostly because they have big mouths and like to brag. They also think that because they're now rich, they're going to be taxed easy like the big folk, but of course, taxes on gambling winnings are really high.

Cicada July 28, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I've been on both ends of the spectrum financially, and I definitely work less at my white-collar job than I ever did at my blue-collar/ no-collar jobs. I suppose I can thank the years I put into my education for that, but there are a lot of white-collar types who got their educations paid for and majored in some cushy area like communications or business. I don't think those people really get how hard people work at shit jobs just to barely survive, so they complain about "lazy" people taking "their" money.

valgal2342 July 28, 2011 at 2:39 pm

cuz people who win the lottery don't set up trust funds.

Jukesgrrl July 28, 2011 at 6:36 pm

Great post, except people who majored in communications don't have cushy jobs anymore. In fact, we don't have jobs, period. Communication isn't something that's currently valued in our society. For an example, see the inadequate output from the White House.

Cicada July 29, 2011 at 1:05 am

The cushy was with regards to the major. I say that only because my major was full of courses like multivariate statistics, mathematical modeling of ecological systems and enzyme kinetics. I was always jealous of communications majors who could do stuff like go out on the weekends. I know people who work in communications don't have cushy jobs. No offense meant!

No, actually, not really. Have a good relationship with my dad. But men who won't support their own children are assholes, especially if it's because they "resent" giving money to their ex-wives. The money's not for the wife, it's for your CHILDREN, dickhead.

ThundercatHo July 28, 2011 at 3:09 pm

As the ex-wife of a total asshole who also refused to pay his child support because then he wouldn't have any extra money for "vacations and stuff". He decided to give up his parental rights and any contact with his son rather than pay. Now, 20 yrs. later he stalks his son on Facebook.

My son legally changed his name as soon as he turned 18. He wanted the same last name as my husband who was his "real" dad.

BaldarTFlagass July 28, 2011 at 3:53 pm

I only pay child support in the form of school property taxes, which some would think is unfair to me, being unburdened with any children of my own with which to leech off the system. However, I figure it's a small price to pay, I don't want to be completely surrounded by uneducated morons, at least not any more than I have to suffer already living here in deepest, darkest Texas.

finallyhappy July 28, 2011 at 5:47 pm

I dated the gal that cuts my hair a couple years back; her friend told me it wouldn't work out because she liked the "bad boyz." I asked her about that, and she admitted it was true (hence the four divorces). I said, "Well, we're both nearing 50, most of the Bad Boyz our age are dead or in jail by now. How bout an ex-Bad Boy, I was a bit rough back in the day." From then on, I'd call her and tell her "I'm going 40 mph, and the speed limit's 35!" or "I'm in the 10-item express lane at the grocery, and I've got 13 items!!" She got a kick out of that. She ended up jumping the fence and dumping me for a lesbian millionaire heiress, can't say I blame her although it's kind of unmanning. She still cuts my hair, though, no hard feelings.

It took me twenty years to leave my asshole, but by God, I never went back, and never went near another guy until I got used to not tiptoeing around land mines, and started feeling good about myself. I figured that then if I was around a Bad one, it would not feel right.

When I read that story I thought Joe Walsh was a prick and a hypocrite. But after a little more reading, it became clear that he's much, much worse than that:

In 2009, Walsh lost a condo to foreclosure because he owed more than $300,000 on the property. In April 2010, an investigation revealed that Walsh failed to file his personal financial disclosure form as required by federal election law. When questions about his personal finances dogged his congressional campaign, Walsh once again claimed he wasn’t a rich man, despite managing to pay $3,300 per month for a house in upscale Winnetka.

Walsh also rejected the congressional health insurance plan for his family on principle, much to the chagrin of his current wife, Helene, who had a preexisting condition and needed surgery while the couple was uninsured.

Off topic, but another in triumph of "personal responsibility" a certain Widdle Andy Breitbart that was so going on and on about how eager they were to go to trial with Shirley Sherrod failed in his two more attempts to get the case thrown out.

Jukesgrrl July 28, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Yipee. But I hope they're not trying the case in Florida.

Good news.

Add "deadbeat dad" to the IOKIYAR file, which ought to be a database by now.

Mojopo July 28, 2011 at 5:05 pm

I've been waiting all day for your take-down and you didn't disappoint, Wonkette. I love you harder than ever.

MinAgain July 28, 2011 at 6:06 pm

What a douchebag.

Buckminster July 28, 2011 at 6:46 pm

What a perfect poster-boy for this brain-dead, morally bankrupt Tea Party movement! I hope the lawyers nail him to the cross for this!

Walkinwiddaking July 28, 2011 at 7:39 pm

This from his lawyer, "“Joe Walsh hasn’t been a big-time wage-earner politician until recently.." Knowing that I'm sure I'll sleep more soundly tonight.

In other words, until he took on a socialist (re: gov) salary, he was incapable of locating his own bootstraps.

Roast in hell, Joe, you loathsome lying thieving bad father republican* deadbeat weasel.

*republican = general epithet.

Representative Dickhead (R-IL, or rather ill) won that seat in Illinois 9 by two-tenths of one percent in the 2010. He'd run back in 96 for the US House, and again in 98 for a state house district. The first time he was clobbered by long-time incumbent Sidney Yates–two to one. In 98, he lost again. All our boy could come up with was 14 thousand votes in that barn-burner–32% of the total.

Looks to me like Joe-boy's a one-term flash-in-the-pan in an otherwise Democratic district. So in a few months, buh-bye, Joe. That is, if the judge doesn't get you first.

Screeching famewhore

Hey, now. Don't talk about Lady Gaga like that.

But seriously, what bothers me about Walsh isn't just his whoredom, but that's he's dumb as a box of rocks. When you're as dumb as he is, there is no legitimate reason to be so smug.

I kind of wish his opponent's opposition research team would have exposed this. I'm sure they had to know about it.

Hey look suspiciously like "The Farting Preacher."

I need to stop being so obvious. Ah well, at least I've got another assignation with The Way Too Young Chick coming up in September…

Doktor Zoom July 28, 2011 at 2:45 pm

Dirty Old Men all over the internet applaud you.

HistoriCat July 28, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Hey – I spent years in a dry spell!

You just learn to recognize the echo of things you've said yourself.
Now all you have to do is survive the heat of August to get to the heat of September. (Insert bom chicka wow wow music)

Doktor Zoom July 28, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Yep–Walsh caught the Katy, left her a mule to ride.

"well my temperature is rising casting votes on the floor.
crazy people rocking 'cause they want child support."

Doktor Zoom July 28, 2011 at 3:05 pm

Congressman Walsh would like to thank all the members of the Illinois Law Enforcement community who have chosen to join him at this time.

poncho_pilot July 28, 2011 at 3:23 pm

but how does he feel about Illinois Nazis?

Chet Kincaid July 28, 2011 at 3:30 pm

That was my left hand.

He's glad to be one?

jus_wonderin July 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm

I agree. I paid for the 14 or so, then paid for her college and paid for her car. Fuck, maybe I am a doormat, not sure, but it had to be done and it was the fucking right thing to do.

This piece of shit makes me want to strangle him. If my rage is not showing I will try harder. I really, really want to fly to this guys office and give him a piece of my…two by four.

O thank heavens, I pictured an entirely different Nixon.

Me too. It's tough being an Oldz.

BaldarTFlagass July 28, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Hell, no big deal, I'd probably be ex-husband number 5 by now.

ChessieNefercat July 28, 2011 at 10:19 pm

"…it was the fucking right thing to do."

And isn't that all any parent needs to know to do something, really? A real parent I mean, not a jerk like Joe.

horsedreamer_1 July 29, 2011 at 10:30 am

Got me all mixed up like pasta primavera…
Joe Walsh, why'd you throw a chair at Geraldo Rivera?
