Your LakeCountyEye has been out of the loop, moonlighting as a process server. Has there been anything in the news this week?

Ha ha j/k. The Sun-Times is reporting that pay-as-you-go Congressman Joe Walsh is being sued by an ex for $100,000 in unpaid 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.

Your LakeCountyEye hazards to guess that a story like this can damage Walsh, at least throughout the blogosphere. Having deadbeat dad on one's rapsheet is not likely to sit well with bloggers who, on the whole, tend live in the basements of a divorced parent. The Congressman is in danger of losing his sobriquet Screamin' Joe Walsh for the much less awesome Welshin' Joe Walsh. Some industrial-level damage-control may be the order of the day for the Eighth District Congressman.

Until then your LakeCountyEye has seen Walsh's oppo file, which contains more funny paper than a Las Vegas credit-default-swap. Here are ten items which caught your LakeCountyEye's eponymous LakeCountyEye:

Ten Little Known Facts about Joe Walsh

Look for your LakeCountyEye, knocking at your door, serving your summons.

I spent over 60 hours at the County Fair and only saw one kid with a Joe Walsh sticker. As a matter of fact the Joe Walsh stickers at Republican Booth were conveniently hidden behind their propaganda while other candidates were easily accessible.
