A few months ago, Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was arrested by police for thriving under the influence.
Pelosi, when police encountered him, had watery eyes, slurred speech, and appeared visibly intoxicated.
Earlier this month, the House Speaker’s husband pled guilty to his DUI offense. He’ll be on probation for three years, in addition to being subjected to various fines and court-mandated guidelines.
During the time Paul Pelosi was arrested, he showed the officers a card he carried as a member of the California Highway Patrol Foundation. This has now resulted in him being kicked out of the organization altogether, according to Fox News.
Another Bad Break For Paul Pelosi
On Wednesday, the California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation wrote to Pelosi, letting him know his membership is revoked.
The police group claimed that for the House Speaker’s husband to flash his membership card with them as a means of dodging consequences for driving under the influence is frowned upon.
“After evaluating the events that led to Mr. Pelosi’s arrest and conviction, we are revoking Mr. Pelosi’s lifetime membership with the CHP 11-99 Foundation effective immediately,”

Prior to this incident, Pelosi maintained a lifetime membership with the California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation. Now, he’s been called upon to return all paraphernalia he may have in conjunction with his membership.
According to the police group, Pelosi’s behavior stands as a breach of the agreement he made when initially becoming a member of the California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation.
An Important Life Lesson and More
Many Americans have suggested that if Pelosi weren’t the husband of the House Speaker and well-off financially, the consequences that he faced for driving under the influence could have been a lot steeper.
News of Pelosi losing his membership with the California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation comes as the car he was driving under the influence is going up for auction. Reportedly, it carries a $168,576 retail value with under 3,000 miles.
The vehicle has sustained some serious damages, however. Its sides, along with the back bumper and undercarriage, require repairs.
The investigations are gonna be fantastic after Republicans win back the House. Maybe we can discover why Paul Pelosi is the worlds greatest stock picker.

Aside from driving while intoxicated, Pelosi has also come under fire amid scrutiny that his family often faces due to insider trading allegations.
Many Americans worry that Pelosi is using the information from his wife, the current House Speaker, to learn when it’s most expedient to buy or sell stocks.
Much of the public has therefore thrown its support behind legislation that would prohibit members of Congress and their families from this sort of behavior.
It remains to be seen if the Pelosi family finds itself caught up in any other scandals going forward.
