Joe Walsh Michelle Obama Funeral Flap: Tea Partier Rips FLOTUS For Going To Hadiya Pendleton Service

Thursday, a White House official said Michelle Obama would attend the funeral, along with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will also attend the funeral.

"As a mother and Chicagoan, the first lady was heartbroken to learn of the tragic loss of Hadiya Pendleton due to senseless gun violence," Kristina Schake, Michelle Obama communications director, told the Tribune Thursday.

According to WGN, a Friday visitation for Pendleton will be held at Calahan Funeral Home, 7030 S. Halsted St., from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. The wake and funeral follow on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. at the Greater Harvest Baptist Church at 5141 S. State St.

Walsh's criticism of the first lady attending the Pendleton service is not the first time the Tea Party favorite has lashed out on the topic of Chicago violence following a headline-grabbing tragedy. Last spring, after the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin inspired Walsh's then-congressional colleague Bobby Rush to don a hoodie on the House floor, Walsh said he hoped Rush would "be as outraged with all of the black on black crime going on in the city of Chicago weekend after weekend" as he was with Martin's death.
