Joe Walsh vs Joe Walsh

It's ironic that one of the more prominent members of the Tea Party shares the same name with Joe Walsh, especially since the Eagles member and former James Gang guitarist made a whimsical run for the White House.  We have no idea whether the two have much besides their name in common, but both might have a similar disregard for speed limits.  Walsh sang about his Maserati doing 185 on his 1978 solo album.  But Life's Been Good was a song making fun of a music industry exec in the first person so it may be no reflection on the singer or his driving habits.  The Congressman, on the other hand, may have a heavy foot and a blatant disregard for traffic laws in general.  Already facing claims by his ex-wife that he has stiffed her on $117,000 in child support payments and  one for an even greater amount by a former consultant, the Illinois Congressman by the same name may have accumulated nearly 20 traffic citations in two Illinois counties between 1989 and 2009.  In addition to speeding, violations Walsh was apparently ticketed for included driving on a suspended or revoked license, driving without insurance, and driving without a registration.  The outspoken conservative just regained his right to drive after a four month suspension for failure to carry a kind of insurance required by his home state for problem drivers.
