Sun-Times Puts Ex-Wife’s Suit for Child Support on Front Page

Tuesday’s editorial in the Chicago Sun-Times made it clear that the paper has no use for the message being forcefully delivered by Congressman Joe Walsh.

Needless to say,  the liberal talking heads on TV were livid that Walsh had forced that fact into the national spotlight.

  3. Is your job to be against extending the debt cieling and not paying child support? Not setting a good example Joe. Shame on you Joe.

  4. Read his wikipedia page (perhaps somewhat accurate) and you get a view of someone who does not handle finances very well.

    However in this case just because someone charged him of a crime doesn’t mean he committed it.

    They ended up settling.
