Rep. Tammy Duckworth, for the record, is a combat veteran who lost both feet (and most of the use of her arm) to enemy action. Braulio Castillo is a reported crony capitalist who allegedly used his IRS buddy to get a half-billion dollar contract. Castillo also apparently used a prep school foot injury to claim disabled veteran status, which is why Duckworth was using the rhetorical equivalent of an autopsy saw on him like that.
PS: Speaking from a crassly political point of view: I suspect that Darrell Issa would readily agree with me that it does conservatives no harm to show just how bad it can get in the IRS; and that it does not actually hurt the cause to let a Democrat be the one to inform a conniving crony capitalist that she would very much like to see the man taken out front, and beaten with sticks. I know, I know: not very partisan hackish of me. Still, wounded combat veteran taking fully justified umbrage at a guy taking advantage of the disability rules. I can’t find it in my heart to push back on that.
