Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul just can’t stay out of the headlines as a result of his Memorial Day weekend drunken driving arrest and, in the latest development in the sordid tale of power and privilege, he has been booted from the police group whose ID card he flashed to officers on the night that he was busted.
According to a Fox News report, the 82-year-old stock-picking wizard had his lifetime membership revoked by The California Highway Patrol 11-99 (CHP 11-99) Foundation which informed him of the decision in a statement that was shared with Fox News Digital.
In a letter to Mr. Pelosi, CHP 11-99 requested that he turn in all of the membership items that he currently possesses, saying that his conduct during the May arrest when his Porsche collided with another vehicle near the couple’s Napa Valley winery “reflected poorly” on the group.
“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,” the statement reads.
At the time of his arrest, the clearly impaired Pelosi who reeked of alcohol according to police, presented the card for the group, a charity that in addition to supporting officers, provides scholarships for their children when asked for his identification, a gesture which some have interpreted as an attempt at bribery.
“These actions reflected poorly on the 11-99 Foundation and undermined our important mission. In our letter to Mr. Pelosi, we requested that he return all membership items he was issued upon joining the 11-99 Foundation. Once we receive all membership items back, he will be refunded what he has donated,” the group wrote. “This is the standard process we follow for any membership termination.”
“We’d like to remind all our members and the public that the purpose of 11-99 membership is to show support for the sacrifice and life-saving work CHP employees carry out daily across the state to keep our families safe,” the statement reads. “We will continue to evaluate any violation of our membership terms and conditions that is brought to our attention with due process and revoke any member who is found to violate those terms.”
In recently released dashcam video footage of the police intervention, Pelosi who was lit up like a Christmas tree and could barely stand upright, failed roadside sobriety tests and told officers that he had a “glass of champagne before dinner” and also “a glass of white,” likely a fib due to the analysis of experts who placed his blood alcohol content much higher at the time of the accident before a gap of over two hours before law enforcement authorities obtained a sample which was found to be .082 percent.

Pelosi, who pleaded guilty to the DUI charge, received a slap on the wrist this week, being sentenced to five days in jail but getting credit for the two days he had already served with two more days erased by a good conduct credit, leaving him with a mere day behind bars which will be satisfied by eight hours of service in court’s work program; he also received three years of probation.
“As part of his probation, Paul Pelosi will also be required to attend a three-month drinking driver class, and install an ignition interlock device, where the driver has to provide a breath sample before the engine will start. He will also have to pay about $5,000 in victim restitution for medical bills and lost wages and nearly $2,000 in fines, the judge said,” the Associated Press reported.
The multimillionaire Pelosi did not bother to show up for his sentencing hearing, instead being represented by his attorney.
This week it was also reported that Pelosi’s black 2021 Carrera 4S Porsche which was damaged when he drunkenly plowed into a 2014 Jeep is up for auction, It has an estimated retail value of almost $170,000 and just 2,738 miles on it, according to Fox News.

“The overwhelming majority of our members truly support the 11-99 Foundation because of the work we do to support grieving spouses, families whose children have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and temporary housing for CHP families who lost homes due to wildfires or other natural disasters, and our vocational and academic scholarship program for CHP children,” the organization wrote in its statement announcing that it had booted Pelosi.
“We are proud that over the past forty years we have provided more than $45 million in assistance to CHP employees and their children. We value our members’ support and will continue to protect our mission and uphold our policies and procedures moving forward,”
