Politicking a Family's Tragedy

Staff Sgt. Joseph Goodrich of Pittsburgh was killed in Iraq on July 10. Two weeks later, as friends and family gathered at his funeral, an uninvited guest appeared — Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor Catherine Baker Knoll.

Rather than join in honoring the fallen hero, Knoll passed out business cards, politicked, and criticized the Iraq War. "Knoll felt this was an appropriate time to campaign and impose her will on us," said Rhonda Goodrich, Joseph's sister.

Now, we can impose our will on Knoll — Let the Lieutenant Governor know how you feel about her behavior.
