GOP Attacks Democrat Who Lost Both Legs In Iraq For "Not Standing Up " For Vets



Typical Trump Supporter Comment.

"WASHINGTON -- A GOP effort to jab Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who is currently running for Senate, backfired spectacularly on Tuesday when the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out a tweet accusing the combat veteran and double amputee of "not standing up for our veterans."
"Duckworth lost both of her legs and suffered serious injuries to her right arm in 2004, when the U.S. Army helicopter she was co-piloting was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade over Baghdad."

Here's how Chicago's www.dailyherald.com/article/20141111/news/141119904/ about Duckworth's combat experience:

Duckworth's right leg was gone in an instant, shredded in a flash of heat and a spray of shrapnel from a grenade. Her left leg was terribly injured, and her right arm was nearly severed.

The blast blew out the clear bubble at the bottom of the cockpit, destroyed the window above her head and severely damaged the helicopter's flight system stored behind her seat.

'With that, Duckworth became the first female double amputee of the Iraq War. In 2010, she'd become the first disabled woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives."
