This week’s Smackdown goes to the Family Research Council (FRC), a conservative advocacy group, for awarding Tea Party freshman Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) a 100% rating as a “True Blue” member of Congress who practices “unwavering support of the family.”
“I am proud and honored to be recognized by the Family Research Council as the only member from Illinois with a 100 percent pro-family voting record,” Walsh said in a news interview. “Defending American values have always been one of my top priorities, and this reward reaffirms my dedication to that fight.”
So, why the Smackdown?
Because Mr.”100% pro-family” owes more than $100,000 in child support.
Not only that, according to ThinkProgress, Walsh “also rejected the congressional health insurance plan for his family on principle, much to the chagrin of his current wife, Helene, who had a preexisting condition and needed surgery while the couple was uninsured.”
What do you think about handing out family awards to deadbeat dads?
