In all the craziness of yesterday, this often was overlooked. But I want to draw attention to this kickass woman.
This is Tammy Duckworth. She served in the military and lost both of her legs in Iraq. When she came home and recovered, she ran for Congress and won a seat. Now she’s using her position to fight for reforms and for veterans.
During this hearing yesterday cross-examining a contractor under investigation for receiving contracts from the government based on his claims he was a wounded veteran for an injury he sustained playing football, she schooled him for all the veterans wounded in the line of duty at war.
This woman is a hero.
