And, as is standard with Pelosi’s corruption, it involved the major fiscal benefit of her millionaire husband, Paul.
This is no different. Uncovered and un-trumpeted by the American Media Maggots.

Pelosi Subsidies Benefit Husband’s Investment in Dem Mega-Donor’s Company
by Lachlan Markay
CEO donated to Pelosi, bundled for Obama, as Dem leader boosted his real estate holdings
The top Democrat in the House of Representatives steered more than a billion dollars in subsidies to a light rail project that benefitted a company run by a high-dollar Democratic donor and in which her husband is a major investor.
When cloud computing giant Salesforce sold a large plot of land to the Golden State Warriors in April, it had House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to thank for helping to swell real estate prices in the area.
Pelosi has worked for more than a decade to steer taxpayer funds to a light rail project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, where Salesforce had planned a new campus. Experts say the project boosted the value of Mission Bay real estate.
The company’s CEO, Marc Benioff, is a high-dollar Democratic donor. Pelosi and her leadership PAC are among the recipients of his generous campaign contributions. Pelosi’s husband is also a major Salesforce investor.
The most important sentence: “PELOSI’S HUSBAND IS ALSO A MAJOR SALESFORCE INVESTOR.”
Follow the bread-crumbs and follow the corruption. Translated: follow the Pelosis.
Question: did Nancy “marry up” or did Paul Pelosi “marry up”?
Paul Frank Pelosi (born April 15, 1940 in San Francisco) is an American businessman who owns and operates Financial Leasing Services, Inc., a San Francisco, California-based real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm. In addition, he is the owner of the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.
Pelosi’s office did not respond to questions about whether that might constitute a conflict of interest.
The Democratic leader’s investments in companies with business before the House came under intense scrutiny in 2011 and 2012 when Congress debated measures governing “insider trading” by members of Congress.
An eventual law imposing stricter regulations on members’ financial activities even included language informally dubbed the “Pelosi provision” due to her and her husband’s participation in IPOs of companies actively lobbying for or against federal legislation.
A tad bit more detail:
Two stops on the extended light rail line are about three blocks from a four-story office building owned by Paul Pelosi.
C’mon, that’s just an evil and random fragment of chance.
