Paul Pelosi Stripped of California Highway Patrol Foundation Membership
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t need to buy another evening gown for this year’s 11-99 Foundation gala. This foundation is a non-profit law enforcement association that supports the needs of California Highway Patrol families.
Pelosi’s lifetime membership was just revoked.
Let’s back up, Paul Pelosi recently pled guilty to a DUI offense. The police found him visibly drunk after crashing his car, and then Pelosi tried to hand his 11-99 lifetime membership card with his ID to the officers on the scene.
But his attempt to use his influence and financial support for families of offices as a get-out-of-jail-free card was a mistake. Pelosi failed the sobriety test and was arrested.
In a letter obtained by Fox News, the 11-99 Foundation said Paul Pelosi’s “actions reflected poorly on the 11-99 Foundation and undermined our important mission.”
The statement continued:
“After evaluating the events that lead to Mr. Pelosi’s arrest and conviction, we are revoking Mr. Pelosi’s lifetime membership with the CHP 11-99 Foundation effective immediately. 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.
We’d like to remind all our members and the public that the purpose of the 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.
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.”
The foundation conducted a review of the circumstances around the event and saw that Pelosi was arrested, pled guilty, and received a legal slap on the wrist.
They decided to revoke his lifetime membership and he is now required to return his membership card along with other benefits he received.
