GOP Tweets & Deletes Disgusting Comment Against Dem Disabled Vet Tammy Duckworth Who Is Running for Congress

GOP Duckworth Tweet

Politico reports:

The National Republican Senatorial Committee tweeted Tuesday that Illinois Senate Democratic candidate Tammy Duckworth, who lost both her legs while serving in the Iraq War, “has a sad record of not standing up for our veterans.” Her campaign shot back immediately, calling the tweet “tasteless and dishonest, just like everything else to do with Mark Kirk’s flailing campaign.”

In November 2004, a rocket-propelled grenade hit the Blackhawk helicopter that Duckworth was piloting. She wrote in an essay for POLITICO Magazine in August 2015 that her “right leg was vaporized.” “My left leg was crushed and shredded against the instrument panel,” she wrote. “My pilot in command miraculously brought down the helicopter safely. I went from being the most senior member on board to the weakest.”

No honor, no shame. Shows exactly just how much respect the Republicans have for soldiers and combat veterans: ZERO.
