The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Paul Pelosi, was arrested for driving under the influence in Napa, California.
Paul Pelosi was arrested on Saturday night and booked into jail on two counts of driving under the influence.
Pelosi’s office responded to media requests for comment by saying, “The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
Paul Pelosi was quickly out of jail on Sunday morning as his bail was set at a mere $5,000 dollars. Paul Pelosi is 82-years-old and is at low risk of reoffending or disappearing.
This incident has no doubt been a massive headache for Nancy Pelosi as she is already struggling to keep the negative press under control.
The midterm elections are just around the corner, and Pelosi’s image is one of a dozen factors dragging Democrats around the nation down. Her elitist behavior has made her highly unlikable to the average American, and her husband’s arrest isn’t going to help.
