I knew it was coming but Walsh didn't, Bashir asked him "Congressman Walsh, you said you don't want to put a financial burden on your children so tell me, why haven't you paid $117,000 in child support."  The sweat beading up on Walsh's upper lip said it all, he stated that Bashir was making a low ball statement and that he didn't owe the money and was still in court on the matter.  Bashir then stated that Walsh when in the Ill State Congress voted "yes" on a bill that if you owed $10,000 in child support you could not run for office.  Again, Walsh said that he was innocent and would prove so in court.

Bashir is one of the best MSNBC interviewers and has no fear asking questions like this.  We should all email him our thanks for getting in the face of teabagger Joe Walsh.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
