    What's The Dumbest Thing You Could Say To A Congresswoman Who Lost Her Legs In Battle? Um, THIS.


    An IRS contractor named Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military. Then one day, decades later, he used it to get preferred treatment in government contracts. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, felt that this might just be a touch inappropriate. It gets amazing around 4:30.

    Amazing powerful woman. A great example of how people manipulate in order to get benefits.

    Thanks for sharing that

    What's amazing is that they never think they're gonna get caught. How did he going into this meeting and not think this might happen? :jj:

    It is horrible, however ... to some guys, I've found, football almost is battle. I swear, to some guys, football is everything. Everything. :fil: (this isn't to say I agree w/them of course)

    While Im grateful for her service, she was a key member of incarcerated ex- IL. governor blagos staff. she herself was under investigation for some hokey shit when he went down. She's just another in a long line of crooked IL pols...:nocheer:
