During a casual town hall meeting with constituents at an Uno Bar and Grill in Gurnee, Illinois, freshman Rep. Jon Walsh started screaming when a pair of participants dared to suggest that banks deserve some of the blame for the current financial crisis.
Jon Walsh, a “Tea Party favorite” has recently received a pro-family award from the Family Research Council despite owing over $117,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife. At the town hall meeting he angrily insisted that he “[didn't] want government meddling in the marketplace.”
When asked corrupt businessmen switching between the private and public sector, Joe screamed that he agrees, but only blames the government. Right or wrong, his words and reputation were tarnished by his hot headed behavior. He even yelled to the very people he represents, “Quiet for a minute, or I’m gonna ask you to leave! You need to listen!”
