Walsh doesn’t just have experience with conservative talk radio and Trump support; he inhabited the fever swamps of birtherism and anti-Muslim rhetoric and conspiracy theories as recently as a couple years ago. The one-term congressman also tweeted the n-word on several occasions and he has significant personal baggage.

Peter J. Hasson pulled out a number of examples of Walsh’s tweets Wednesday night. Many of them include conspiracy theories, falsehoods and slurs…

And this is just the tweets. This is a guy who has also been a radio host in recent years; imagine what he’s said there that we don’t have a ready-made transcript of. We already know he was briefly pulled off the air for (similar to above) saying racial slurs while discussing racial slurs. And then there’s the matter of the child-support dispute that marred his failed 2012 reelection race, in which his ex-wife accused him of being a deadbeat dad and owing her $117,000. (They later reached a settlement.)
