Nancy Pelosi’s husband has been kicked out of his police association after he flashed their card during his DUI arrest.
Via Daily Caller:
A California police association has kicked out Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, after he allegedly flashed his membership card to police officers during his DUI arrest, the association announced Thursday.
The California Highway Patrol 11-99 (CHP 11-99), a charity that gives scholarships to the children of highway patrol employees, said in a statement that Pelosi’s “actions reflected poorly” on it and that it informed him in a letter of his membership termination. Pelosi was in violation of the “terms and conditions” of his membership after allegedly trying to hand his CHP 11-99 card to officers amid his May DUI arrest, the group said.
CHP 11-99 members are barred from bringing the group’s “name or property into law enforcement contact,” an association spokeswoman previously told the DCNF, explaining that it would review Pelosi’s membership following reports on him flashing his card to officers.
“In our letter to Mr. Pelosi, we requested that he return all membership items he was issued upon joining the 11-99 Foundation,” the association said. “Once we receive all membership items back, he will be refunded what he has donated. This is the standard process we follow for any membership termination.”
Pelosi was pulled over in May in Napa, California, after getting into a car crash and was arrested with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher. He pled guilty to one DUI count Tuesday and was sentenced to three years probation as well as five days of jail time.
I’m glad the CHP association is not just letting Nancy’s husband off the hook. So many times these people get away with everything because of who they are, while this doesn’t really matter in the end, I am glad to see they are honoring their rules and giving him the boot.
I do hope someone asks Nancy about this again. But I won’t hold my breath.
