Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh, who lost his seat to Tammy Duckworth following revelations that he was a deadbeat dad, was booted he says from his drive-time radio show this evening for using racial slurs during a diatribe over the Redskin’s name woes.

Walsh, who hosts the 5-7 PM radio slot on AM560 The Answer in Chicago, documented the ongoing conflict with the station’s general manager on his twitterfeed, @WalshFreedom.
