Today’s Public Official Misfit is Illinois Rep. Joe “The Deadbeat” Walsh


Joe Walsh succeeded in duping the voters in the 8th District to elect him to the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2010 as a member of the Tea Party.
After putting up with Joe the Louse for fifteen years, his ex-wife Laura filed for divorce in Dec 2002. Laura was granted custody of the three children and Joey was ordered to pay child support of about $2,100 a month. Being the certified Louse and Loser that he is, Joey underpaid and/or didn’t pay any court ordered child support from 2005 through 2010.
Joey only began to pay full support payments upon receipt of his undeserved government salary of $174,000 in Jan. 2011. According to Joe the Loser’s financial statements, he earned a whopping $22,500 in 2009 and $21,000 in 2010. Goshes and Gollies and Gee Whillickers Milford, Joey the Loser’s annual earnings are quite impressive, right? As of July 2011, Joey the Deadbeat owed his wife $117,437 in back child support payments. (Chicago Sun-Times)
Even though Joey earned just a tad over $22,000, he was magically able to loan his campaign $35,000. Hot damn, looks like Joey is using the same accountant that the federal government uses, right?
As a Tea-Party congressman, Joey rails against the federal government’s spending habits. Joey had the chutzpah to say, “I won’t place one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids…” Here’s Joey the Loser failing to pay over $110,000 in child support for the benefit of his children now feigning that he’s concerned about placing debt on their backs. Joey’s hyperbolic (bullshit) statement doesn’t pass the involuntary laugh test. Patently, Joey missed his calling as a standup comedian.
Ya gotta wonder how in the hell Joey the Deadbeat avoided being found in contempt of court for failing to pay court-ordered child support. I personally know of many cases where fathers were found guilty of contempt and hauled off to the slammer for owing much less than Joey the Loser owed to his ex-wife and three children.
Joey is a total embarrassment to all well-intentioned hypocrites running amuck in the halls of congress. Hopefully, the good folks in his congressional district will send Joey packing in November 2012. Not to worry Joey, I hear tell that the local Wal-Mart is always looking for greeters.
