How it all began…
In 2009, two employees of the Anna Veterans’ Home sued Tammy Duckworth as an individual in Union County Circuit Court for violations of the state of Illinois officials and employees’ ethics act. Duckworth is accused of silencing a whistleblower, wrongful termination, humiliating an employee and approving inaccurate performance reviews that rendered the plaintiffs ineligible for bonuses and raises. The whistleblowers were ignored and threatened when they reported abuse of veterans and unfair treatment. Duckworth is represented by the office of the Attorney General of Illinois thus her defense is being paid for by the taxpayers of Illinois for the past seven years.
