Though his family woes have been quite public as of late, U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh announced Thursday that the Family Research Council Action committee has named him a "True Blue" member of Congress for his "unwavering commitment and consistent support in defense of life and the family."
Walsh, a Tea Party favorite and a regular on cable news shows, has been on the defense in recent months after his ex-wife sued him for $117,437 in allegedly unpaid child support. Laura Walsh claims the congressman didn't pay up for his three children, but loaned his own campaign $35,000 and took international vacations. Walsh has denied these allegations, but a judge recently ordered him to produce proof that he paid up.
He cares about his own family so much that he ignores his financial obligations to them, even the court ordered ones. Welcome to another example of “responsibility” brought to you by your Republican Party and the Tea Party.
