From the campaign to reelect Rep. Joe Walsh (R, Illinois 8th District)…
Joe and Laura Walsh have resolved their child support dispute and have agreed to dismiss all pending matters.
They have issued the following statement:
"We both regret this public misunderstanding and the effect it has had on our children. Like many families, we have had our share of issues and made our share of mistakes over the years. Having resolved these issues together and cleared up these mistakes in private, we now agree that Joe is not and was not a "deadbeat dad" and does not owe child support. We both have been loving and devoted parents to our children, ages 24, 21, and 17, and are happy to avoid a public legal fight hurtful to our entire family and look forward to caring for our children in private."
