GOPer Joe Walsh: Real 'Murkins skip out on child support

Tea Party freshman, Rep. Joe Walsh shrugs off 117K in unpaid child support. No big deal he says, that's "real America" for you. Apparently in his "real America" it's just fine for deadbeat Dads to fail to support their kids while taking European vacations with their girlfriends and loaning their campaigns 35K here and there.

This is the same guy, who made this viral video about the fake debt crisis in DC:
“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.
To be fair, the support arrears is in dispute. He claims he only owes about 10K, which of course totally justifies the vacations, the loans and the high priced rent he pays for a new home in a tony neighborhood for his current family. But not so easy to write it off as a domestic dispute given Walsh's history of fiscal irresponsibility.

He lost a 300K condo for failure to pay the mortgage, there are, or were, liens on his property from unpaid bills and a former staffer is suing him for 20K in unpaid salary. This is the guy who is holding the US economy hostage unless he gets to force his vision of "fiscal responsibility" into law. We're so screwed.
