(Liberty Bell) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband got into a car accident over the weekend and was subsequently arrested for drunk driving. Now, Nancy is trying to distance herself from her husband’s reckless behavior.
Wouldn’t want her good name to be tarnished.
A statement issued by Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, made sure to point out that Nancy Pelosi was an entire continent away from her husband, Paul, at the time of the incident.
While he was drinking and driving in California, Nancy was all the way on the other side of the country to speak at the commencement of Brown University in Rhode Island.
“The speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” the statement said.
Reuters reported that Paul Pelosi was arrested late Saturday night after a two-vehicle crash in which the 2021 Porsche he was driving was struck by a Jeep while trying to cross State Route 29 in Napa County — a region north of San Francisco famous for being wine country.
According to the report, there were no injuries reported and the other driver was not cited in the crash by law enforcement.
Naturally, Nancy Pelosi wanted to immediately distance herself from her husband’s problems. Her political opponents did not waste any time drawing attention to his arrest and millions of Americans delighted in the news.
This Memorial Day weekend, remember not to drink and drive.

Paul Pelosi’s arrest was first reported by the website TMZ. They reproduced an arrest sheet that showed the arrest occurred shortly before midnight on Saturday and that Paul Pelosi was booked into jail around 4 am.
How much time in jail will Paul Pelosi spend?
He endangered so many lives by his reckless behavior.
If his last name was Trump the media would make this the number 1 story.

According to the arrest sheet, Paul Pelosi is now facing two misdemeanor charges, driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher.
According to the New York Post, Paul Pelosi was released at 7:26 a.m.
Paul Pelosi is most well-known for being married to House Speaker and lifelong politician Nancy Pelosi but he has been a successful stock market investor. Surely he’s been so successful without the help of any insider trading. (Sarcasm)
The website Celebrity Net Worth puts Paul and Nancy Pelosi’s net worth at $120 million.
We’d be willing to guess that Paul’s stock market hunches have been persuaded by his wife and information privy to those in high places, like Congress.
He’s been getting away with making millions off the stock market for decades. We wonder if he’ll actually be held accountable for drinking and driving and putting other’s lives in danger.
Surely Nancy Pelosi can pull some strings and get her husband a slap on the wrist. The law only applies to those of us who can’t buy our own form of justice.
