Duckworth discusses media attention, projects
Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Schaumburg, made headlines last year when she defeated Tea Party incumbent Joe Walsh for the seat of Illinois’ 8th Congressional District.
Now, the freshman Democrat and Iraq War veteran has again stepped into the media spotlight, after confronting an IRS contractor she accused of misusing a government program designed to aid veteran business owners during a house committee hearing.
Duckworth, who still actively serves in the Illinois National Guard, lost her legs and the use of her right arm during a tour of duty in Iraq in 2004. She has advocated for veteran assistance programs throughout her political career.
