Paul Pelosi, the husband of California Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has recently made headlines for achieving his second DUI since 2018, as reluctantly reported by CNN earlier this week.
The 82-year-old Pelosi, who decided to take his new Porsche out on a drunken spin, was crossing State Road 29 in Napa County when he plowed straight into the 2014 Jeep owned by a 48-year-old man, per reports from the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
The CHP did not assign fault to either driver, and no injuries from the incident have been reported. However, unlike Pelosi, the driver of the Jeep was not arrested.
Pelosi’s husband was apparently out driving right around midnight, with a blood alcohol content of well over 0.08.
Despite crashing into an American, Pelosi only faces two misdemeanor charges: driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher and driving under the influence. His bail was set at a paltry $5,000.
Nancy Pelosi has refused to comment on her husband’s late-night drunken antics while she was out of town, as declared by her spokesman.
“The speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” Drew Hammill sniffed to the Associated Press.
While Pelosi was out drinking heavily, Pelosi was delivering a commencement address to Brown University graduates.
Over the past several months, scrutiny of the finances in the Pelosi household has intensified, given the House Speaker’s estimated $300M worth.
Paul Pelosi, who previously worked as a venture capitalist, has amassed multiple millions with various trades and derivatives over the past few years, many of which appear to correlate to legislation passed in Washington.
For instance, Pelosi procured 2,500 shares of Tesla at $872 per share after Democrats began to gun for increased “green” spending.
The amount of wealth accrued by various public servants has led to calls for banning politicians from trading stock while in office, an effort that Pelosi has openly opposed, given her clearly vested interests.
