Hyde gives 56K to Trump & Republicans but owes child support to his 13 yr old son

Conn. candidate who deleted sexist tweet about Kamala Harris owes child support but gives big to Trump and GOP

HARTFORD, Conn. — Robert F. Hyde, the Republican candidate for Congress whose sexually suggestive tweet about Kamala Harris drew widespread condemnation from leaders of both political parties, owes the mother of his 13-year-old son more than $2,000 in child support, according to court records, even as he has continued to make donations to President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee.

Morin said she was struck by the difference between Hyde’s public persona as a political figure and his abdication of personal responsibility regarding his teenage son.
“He can’t even afford $100 a week in child support but he’s golfing with Trump,” Morin said. She produced a photo from Hyde’s Facebook page showing him beaming as he stood next to Eric Trump at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey. The same photo was posted to Hyde’s campaign Instagram page.

The court case between Morin and Hyde has been going on for years, she said. “We’re going back and forth and he’s stating he’s unemployed and can’t afford child support,” she said.
Hyde broke off their relationship in 2006, after he learned Morin was pregnant, she said. Since then Hyde has had sporadic contact with his son, and “there have been years during which there was no contact at all,” according to an April 2018 ruling issued by Judge Kari A. Dooley.

Morin, who drives a school bus for a living and earns less than $400 per week, sought additional child support and the court agreed, ordering Hyde to pay $300 per week as of Jan. 1, 2018. Hyde was also ordered to pay $4,000 in Morin’s attorney fees. The court rejected Hyde’s request for custody, granting him visitation rights only at the discretion of Morin.
In the court filings, Hyde said he could not afford to pay the court-ordered $300 a week in child support.
On Nov. 4, the family support magistrate in Torrington issued a temporary order for Hyde allowing him to pay $94 per week in child support, as well as weekly assessment of $14 to make up the $2,500 he owes Morin. The case was continued until Jan. 13.

5. So where did the money come from that he donated


to tRump and Republicans? Shouldn’t that have been a known fact....that he had money squirreled away? How did he make such a donation and then claim he couldn’t pay his child support. What a scumbag. Spread this information far and wide so he is a recognized Deadbeat dad.

7. Those were my thoughts as well. Is this Russian money? Hmm? He can't find $100 for his

kid but he's got $56,000 for the Republican Party? Either way, whether he was getting funded by some nefarious source or he was hiding money, he's a dead beat and a poor excuse for a father. His kid deserves better.

13. "government and public relations and social media" - ie he's a lobbyist

And that's why his surveillance of a serving American ambassador, telling Lev Parnas something could be done to her for a price in Ukraine, followed by his meeting with Trump, and Trump calling the Ukrainian president that very day, are important.

10. He is a an absolute pig. Literally and figuratively.

No wonder he loves Trump. He is exactly like him.

14. Mr. Hyde is such a gem



He can pay 56K to Nectarine Nero, but he can't pay 2 grand for child support for his own flesh and blood? What a set of priorities!

15. So what happened on Jan. 13th?

Since Hyde is a public figure running for a public office, you'd think the judge would know and have access to the fact that he donated that much money to trump. Why wouldn't the judge throw the book at him? I know lesser individuals who don't pay back child support who get their licenses suspended and assets seized.

Maybe the judge is "sympathetic" to Hyde's causes???
