| No Comments

WASHINGTON---Freshman Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) an anti-tax Tea Party hardliner, whose profile as a non-compromiser has grown during the debate to raise the debt ceiling, is being sued for back child support, reports Chicago Sun-Time political writer Abdon M. Pallasch. Read the story here.

Excerpt from Pallasch report:

"Before getting elected, he had told Laura Walsh that because he was out of work or between jobs, he could not make child support payments.

"So she was surprised to read in his congressional campaign disclosures that he was earning enough money to loan his campaign $35,000."
