I've set up a meeting with the person I believe is the head of one of my Democratic Congresswoman's District offices on Monday.

I explained that I'd like to know why the Congresswoman voted to condemn MoveOn.org when she hasn't called specifically for the condemnation of Senator Chuck Hagel for his equally negative statements about General Petraeus.

Are cititzens not allowed to condemn the activities of a military official who has repeatedly mislead the American people?  Is it that only Senators and elected members of the House have the right and responsibility to condemn these military officials?

Over the phone I was told:

1  My Congresswoman (Tauscher of CA-10) has condemned the remarks of Senator Hagel.  Perhaps what the district official meant was some general statement of condemenation.  I'll find out on Monday.  If anyone knows anything about such a thing, I'd appreciate the information.

2  That the the MoveOn.org condemnation was part of a larger bill that included the SCHIP  legislation.  This was news to me.  Any truth in this?  Any other background info about it?

3  That the Congresswoman voted to condemn MoveOn.org because she thought it's ad was "counterproductive".

Answers to questions above and message theme tips much appreciated.
