Duckworth Gets Influx of Donations After Walsh Comments


Controversial comments by Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh have led to a cash infusion for his Democratic opponent.

 

Walsh drew criticism last week when he complained that Tammy Duckworth, an Army veteran who lost both legs and the use of one arm in a helicopter crash while serving in Iraq, was talking too much about her military service, something that Walsh says “true heroes” don’t do.

 

The Duckworth campaign says she’s taken in more than 85-thousand dollars in donations in the past week, a period of time when the campaign would ordinarily expect to get only a couple thousand dollars.
