Tammy Duckworth Shames Defense Contractor

Wednesday, June 26th, Representative Tammy Duckworth (D-Il.) showed why we were all so excited about her getting elected in 2012.

Watch her obliterate, eviscerate, shame and then kick the crap out of this Defense Contractor for claiming veteran disability on a high school ankle injury. I promise you it will be one of the more satisfying 8 minutes of your life. It should be noted for those that do not know – Representative Duckworth is a hero for more than this – she lost both of her legs fighting in the Iraq War.

From her website:

As a Black Hawk helicopter pilot, she was one of the first women to fly combat missions in Iraq until November 12th, 2004 when her helicopter was hit by an RPG. Tammy lost both legs and part of the use of her right arm in the explosion, and was awarded the Purple Heart for her combat injuries.

During her recovery at Walter Reed, Tammy was one of the highest-ranking amputees and became an advocate for her fellow soldiers. Her leadership was recognized when she was asked to testify before Congress and recruited to run for the House of Representatives. After losing a close race, Tammy continued to serve as a Major in the National Guard and became Director of Illinois’ Department of Veterans’ Affairs. There, she implemented many first in the nation programs to address Post Traumatic Stress, improve traumatic brain injury screening and reduce homelessness among Vets.

It should be noted that even Rep. Darrel Issa was seemingly so impressed, he let her go past her allotted time. Of course after this verbal ass-whipping that she gave the guy – I’m not sure I’d want to ask her to stop.

Thanks to reddit for this perfect gif.

    Thank you for your service to our nation, Tammy. Thank you so much, and in so many ways.

    So what’s that little video of someone jumping over a table and taking anther person out? I do’t see the connection.

  3. Dave Smith R.N. says:

    Wow! You’d expect car thief, arsonist and fellow grifter Issa to defend this twerp but even he agrees (for the cameras, anyway) that Rep Duckworth gave him the slapdown he had coming.

    Awesome… just plain awesome…..

  5. mag the mick says:

    Wow. As I’ve heard them say in Ireland, she places the knife and twists it again, all the while being polite and professional. I hope her health holds, and that she goes on to even higher posts in government. Wonder Woman!

    Reminds me of a t-shirt from the early 70’s. “A woman’s place is in the house — And the Senate!”

    When we see moments like these, it is good to remember what it took to get Representitive Duckworth into that hearing room. It took decades of women demanding that they be able to serve in the military and that they be taken seriously as politicians.

    She is a hero, that is true.

    We still have a long way to go.

    Alaska Senator Begich reportedly agreed to refund part of his salary and when someone contacted his office for confirmation,a recorded message said his staff was cut due to sequestration.(unverified)

  8. mike from iowa says:

    To hell with Shania Twain,I love Ms Duckworth. Castillo had his gluteous maximus reamed,drawn and quartered and served up with a heaping helping of humble pie. Ms Duckworth filleted him with a dull knife and “no-salve.” His only hope for recovery is a quick trip to Fake Noise where they will gladly lick his wounds for the propaganda value. Way back in 2006 when she ran for Hernia Hyde’s old 6th district Illinois congressional seat,her opponent,hand picked by Hyde accused Her of being a cut and run from Iraq Democrat. Her aides suggested that since both her legs were lost when she was shot piloting a Black Hawk chopper in Iraq,running was unlikely. She lost that run but is a true heroine in anybodies book,except chicken hawk rwnj who didn’t bother to serve their nation. I was not aware she lost and had re-attached an arm. Too bad she didn’t beat her opponent over the head with it(literally) since nutjobs are noted for figuratively beating Dems over the head with accusations of being soft on defense.

    • mike from iowa says:

      Ms Duckworth also returned,voluntarily,8.4% of her congressional pay during sequestration. I heard only two people in congress did this and the second one escapes me at this time. What a WOMAN and she is a DEMOCRAT!!!

  9. Alaska Pi says:

    This is the second time I’ve watched this. Representative Duckworth nails so many things here , Mr Castillo included.
    Damn glad she’s in Congress.
