Nancy Pelosi’s Hypocrisy: Using Campaign Coffers to Line Her Pocket

This is big news this morning.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has directed nearly $100,000 from her political action committee to her husband’s real estate and investment firm over the past decade, a practice of paying a spouse with political donations that she supported banning last year.

Here’s the thing: Paul Pelosi is loaded. He does not even need the money. The Pelosi’s are rich. Nonetheless, Nancy is funneling campaign contributions into her own bank account via her husband.

That is, in effect, what this is. She can’t use the money personally, so she is flowing it via her campaign into her husband’s pocket, who deposits it into the family bank account at the end of the day.
