Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh Sued For $100,000 In Child Support

Freshman U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, a tax-bashing Tea Party champion who sharply lectures President Barack Obama and other 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.

“I won’t place one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids and grandkids unless we structurally reform the way this town spends money!” Walsh says directly into the camera in his viral video lecturing Obama on the need to get the nation’s finances in order.

Walsh starts the video by saying, “President Obama, quit lying. Have you no shame, sir? In three short years, you’ve bankrupted this country.”

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, R. Steven Polachek, called the claim of a $117,437 debt “unfounded.”

    All was not well within the ranks of the Eagles, however. Walsh’s
    dissatisfaction with the heavy-handedness of Glenn Frey and Don Henley when it
    came to creative decisions led him to go so far as to discuss forming another
    band with bassist Randy Meisner and co-lead guitarist Don Felder (his
    seriousness here is debatable – when Meisner left and tried to pursue the idea,
    Walsh definitely wanted to stay with the Eagles). Regardless, the discord in the
    band led to tensions and hostility so pronounced that Henley was to call Walsh
    an “insidious troublemaker.” The amount of alcohol and drugs circulating didn’t
    help much either; Walsh had developed a drinking problem that he wouldn’t be
    able to shake until the nineties, and the amount of money that some of the band
    members were snorting up their noses would have been enough to buy a small
    country.

    It reached the breaking point when Felder and Frey got into a confrontation at a
    benefit show in 1980. Frey called it quits and the band broke up. Interestingly
    enough, Walsh seemed to think they were only on hiatus – he told an interviewer
    in 1981 that they weren’t broken up but were just taking a break for solo
    careers. He stated that the band would no doubt get together again in a bit to
    record once more. While his hopes were dashed by the official announcement of
    the Eagles’ breakup in 1982, ironically, he turned out to be right in the long
    run!
