Any staffer or press secretary should be willing and able to answer the question. It would help if the person lived in her district, but she should be ready to account for her activities to anyone, constituent or not.

Or, call up the Chronicle political reporter or a local TV reporter and ask them to find out. It's a very reasonable question, and pertinent. But they'd have to be fair -- did any other local pol go to the funeral? How did THEY pay for the trip?

A friend who did political "opposition research" in D.C. once asked me to call a congressperson and ask something for him...I did, and they were most cooperative, even though I didn't live in that district! Things may have changed though in today's media "gotcha!" environment....

Very interesting that she repeatedly refused to answer the question when it was put in writing or face to face.

She "has resources." She "utilized [her] resources."

Where's the GONG?
