Video: Rep. Joe Walsh Slams Double Amputee Tammy Duckworth's Military Service

At a town hall on Sunday in Elk Grove, Illinois, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) attacked his Democrat opponent Tammy Duckworth and her military service (video below).

Duckworth is a double amputee who lost both her legs in Iraq when insurgents downed her helicopter with an RPG in 2004.

Rep. Joe Walsh, who has never served in the military, said that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was reluctant to discuss his own military service in 2008, which made him a “noble hero.”

Rep. Walsh then said: "Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about. That’s why we’re so indebted and in awe of what they’ve done."
