It’s jut been reported that Paul Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi’s husband, is in the hospital after being violently assaulted this morning during a home invasion. He’s 82.
Here’s more from DC Examiner:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband was violently assaulted early Friday morning at his residency, according to the speaker’s office.
A motivation for the attack is still under investigation, but her husband, Paul Pelosi, has been taken to a hospital for medical treatment. Nancy Pelosi was not near the residency at the time of the attack.
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi. The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation,” Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said in a statement.
“Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery. The Speaker was not in San Francisco at the time,” he added. “The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time.”
This is another reason to own a gun. I know it’s California and, even more so San Francisco, but there’s no reason this should ever happen to anyone. The news should be this morning that Paul Pelosi shot an attacker during a home invasion.
That being said, I’m glad the attacker is in police custody and I do hope Paul Pelosi makes a full recovery.
