Epic - Disabled Veteran Politician RIPS Fake-Disabled Contractor & DirtBag Braulio Castillo!
"Tammy Duckworth won election to the House of Representatives from Illinois in November, her second try at elected office. Before entering politics, Duckworth was a helicopter pilot in the Army. In November 2004, the Black Hawk she was flying was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade; Duckworth lost both legs, and nearly lost her right arm. After returning to the U.S. and undergoing rehab, she became director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs and later assistant secretary in the federal Department of Veterans Affairs."*
Rep. Tammy Duckworth was seriously injured in Iraq and is now disabled and in pain. Enter Braulio Castillo, who brazenly lied about being disabled while serving his country and subsequently collected millions in government contracts. They met, and Duckworth gave him the elbow of a lifetime. Ana KAsparian and John Iadarola discuss.
It's despicable that a person would pass themselves off as a disabled veteran, or even veteran who is disabled. I'm a veteran who is disabled, but right now we are going with non-service connected, as I was unable to prove the the nuclear weapons I worked around led to my inoperable brain tumor, but that's OK for now, because as an Honorably Discharged Veteran, I have been able to use the VA Healthcare system for the last 33+ years. And they have taken care of me well.
And this guy is almost as bad as those SOBs who say they are veterans, and won all these awards & ribbons, Silver Stars, etc, and you find out they never even were in the service, or got Sectioned 8 out of Basic because they were a few French Fries short of a Happy Meal! I want to see this guy return every penny he personally gained out of this fraud. Now, obviously some folks got jobs out of this, but any and all profits, plus a giant penalty should be paid back, then throw his ass in prison!
