This is the scandal that keeps on giving!
In addition to pleading guilty on Tuesday to drunk driving charges, the internet has been abuzz after cops released bodycam footage from the night Paul Pelosi was arrested.
A visibly drunk Paul can be seen barely able to walk as police officers administer a field sobriety test on the House Speaker’s husband.
The video footage comes after news broke earlier this week that another one of Paul Pelosi’s companies is benefiting from Nancy’s role as House Speaker.
It turns out Paul Pelosi is dead center in another financial scandal involving the federal government, this time over the Paycheck Pandemic Program, which helped businesses during the China Virus pandemic.
The Paycheck Protection Program was a national mainstay at the height of the pandemic to help small businesses make their way through a marred economy and retain employees.
According to reports, a company linked to Pelosi’s saw millions in PPP loans which have now been forgiven by the federal government.
EDI Associates, a company that owns numerous restaurants, has been forgiven and will not have to repay nearly $2 million in taxpayer-funded loans. Paul Pelosi owns an 8.1% stake in EDI Associates.
The two loans totaled $711,708 and $996,392, respectively, and both loans were forgiven.
Paul Pelosi, who is mega-rich in his own right, used funds allocated for struggling Americans during an unprecedented public health emergency (that his wife Nancy contributed to) and is now not required to pay the money back.
This serves as merely one instance of the ultra-wealthy elite employed by the government benefitting from their office. Lest we forget, Nancy Pelosi had a direct role in approving the funds allocated for the Paycheck Protection Program — which eventually trickled down to her corrupt husband’s company.
It’s a scandal that under different circumstances would completely dominate the news cycle and cause mass hysteria amongst elected officials and the public alike. But since Nancy is a Democrat, and Democrats have a stronghold on the media, this level of corruption will go wholly ignored and will thus be forgotten about in 24 hours or less…
