Caught this over at Blackfive this morning. Seems as though Pennsylvania’s Lt. Gov. decided to show up at the funeral of Staff Sergeant Joe Goodrich, who was killed in Iraq on July 10th. Trouble is she didn’t go to just express her condolences, but also to express her anti-war views:
The family of a Marine who was killed in Iraq is furious with Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll for showing up uninvited at his funeral this week, handing out her business card and then saying “our government” is against the war.
The family of Staff Sergeant Goodrich is rightly angry and demanding answers from the Governor’s office. You should seek answers about this to and you can do so by contacting Gov. Ed Rendell’s office and letting him know that this behavior is unacceptable of ANYONE, especially an elected official.
