Joe Walsh on Families & Children

Republican presidential primary challenger (former IL Rep.)

 


Sued by ex-wife for $117,000 in child support

Walsh, a tax-bashing Tea Party champion who sharply lectures Pres. Obama & 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.

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?" Joe Walsh's attorney called the claim of a $117,437 debt "unfounded." "I dispute that he owes the child support that she's claiming or anywhere near that amount," the attorney said. "Joe Walsh hasn't been a big-time wage-earner politician until recently--he's had no more problems with child support than any other average guy."

But court documents examined this week during research for a profile on the increasingly visible congressman showed his financial issues also included a 9-year child support battle with his ex-wife.

Foster and protect integrity of the traditional family

Principle 26--The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore the government should foster and protect its integrity.

Principle 2--A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.

I'm a strong supporter of traditional marriage and believe that a marriage can only exist between one man and one woman.
