Gillibrand's Family

In her column today, Cindy Adams hints at a lot more than she writes:

"Kirsten Gillibrand. Anyone note she never mentions her father? I've heard he never speaks to his son. Who is the father married to?"

A spokesman for Gillibrand declined to comment. The only family member to have really made news was Gillibrand's grandmother, who was a political powerhouse years ago in Albany.

Digging into the personal life of a public official raises all sorts of thorny questions, none of which lend themselves to easy answers about when to, and when not to, dig deep.

But the relationship between two family members who happen to be related to a public officials seems like an even less approchable terrain. So, anybody know what Adams is up to, let me know.
