Ex-Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh wants to stop paying child support because he’s out of a job
After insisting he wasn’t a “deadbeat dad” throughout his failed campaign for re-election, ex-U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh skipped last month’s child support payment and has asked to stop paying altogether.
His reason: Since he’s out of Congress, he’s now unemployed.
Walsh, a flame-throwing Tea Party Republican who was trying to land a radio deal and has launched a social media campaign against Fox commentator Karl Rove, did not pay the $2,134 in child support he owed in January, according to the attorney who represents Walsh’s ex-wife,.
And now Walsh has filed a request in Cook County Circuit Court to stop paying child support because he’s unemployed.
