MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell has banned tea party Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) from ever appearing on his show again.
Walsh has refused to vote for raising the nation's debt ceiling, saying he would not place "one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids."
But it turns out that Walsh actually owes more than $100,000 in child support.
"It is time to deny deadbeat dad Joe Walsh some advantages," O'Donnell said Friday.
"In order to teach deadbeat dad Joe Walsh a lesson about family values, yes, the very same family values that so many Republicans try to exploit politically while failing to come close to living up to them in their own lives, deadbeat dad Joe Walsh is hereby banned from this program. He can go tell his lies about his family values and his sense of fiscal responsibility elsewhere."
