The Sun-Times said Walsh is a deadbeat dad who was forced with garnished wages to pay his child support. Walsh vacationed in Europe, paid his own campaign $35,000, while skipping out on support payments for his own children.

Walsh responded: "For Tammy Duckworth to bring up this private family matter that was resolved and dismissed ... shows how desperate her campaign has become since polls have shown me ahead and it represents the worst in our political system."

Some call the Northwest Suburban 8th District the most closely watched Congressional contest in America.
