Duckworth walkout was shameful

I see where at the recent Benghazi hearings a group of congressman walked out of the hearings just before the testimony of the families whose sons were slaughtered began. While I am appalled, I am not shocked, as this seems to be the standard operating procedures of the clowns in Congress.

However, when I saw that Tammy Duckworth was one of the members who walked out I was sickened. She is a war hero and has the battle scars to show for it. I respect and commend her for what she did serving our country. However to walk out on the surviving families of this tragedy is truly classless.

You, Tammy, of all people should know this. The people of Illinois and our great nation deserve better than this. Shame on you Tammy.
