Some African-American Aldermen Say They Feel 'Disrespected' By Duckworth

Some African-American aldermen in Chicago say they feel disrespected by U.S. Senate Candidate Tammy Duckworth. 

Alderman Roderick Sawyer says it’s not that he’s anti-Duckworth. It’s that she ignored the black community in the run up to the primary - an electorate that he says she will need for the November election. So he says members of the city and state legislative black caucuses will be boycotting a unity breakfast for Duckworth.
