A California law enforcement association revoked lifetime membership from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, after he pleaded guilty to a DUI charge.
The Conservative Review reports:
The CHP 11-99 Foundation, a charity benefiting the California Highway Patrol, announced Thursday that it booted Pelosi from membership because he violated the “terms and conditions” of his membership.
“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,” the foundation said in a statement.
On May 28, Pelosi was arrested for DUI after he was involved in a car crash. When responding officers asked Pelosi for his personal ID, court documents show that Pelosi showed officers his CHP 11-99 Foundation membership card instead.
Whether or not Pelosi presented the card to curry favor with the officers, the CHP 11-99 Foundation said the optics of the situation at least suggested that was the case, which warranted the termination of his membership.
The foundation explained, “The mere presentation of his 11-99 Foundation identification credentials to law enforcement made it appear that he was presenting them for preferential treatment whether that was the case or not which violates the terms and conditions he agreed to on his membership application.”
