Former Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh plans to sue the Chicago Sun-Times for printing what he said “is a deliberate attempt to defame” him.

Sun-Times reporter Natasha Korecki on Monday authored an article alleging Walsh, who lost his bid for re-election, is behind on child support payments.

“After insisting he wasn’t a ‘deadbeat dad’ throughout his failed campaign for re-election, ex-U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh is still dogged by questions about child support,” Korecki wrote. “Walsh, a flame-throwing Tea Party Republican who was trying to land a radio deal and last week announced he was forming a new conservative SuperPAC, filed court papers seeking to end his obligation to pay $2,134 per month in child support.”
The Sun-Times article goes on to suggest Walsh is trying to “terminate” his child support payments through a Feb. 1 court filing his attorney Janet Boyle said would be more aptly referred to as a “modification” request.

Walsh said the Sun-Times’ claim about him trying to “terminate” his child support payments “is an absolute lie, and I will no longer stand for it.”
