No one envies a person with a drug or alcohol problem. Alcoholism and drug addiction destroy millions of American lives and families as well. However, anyone who has found recovery will tell you that at no point does anyone deserve a “free get out of jail card” for bad behavior.
It doesn’t matter what excuse is used, “I didn’t mean to, if you only had my life, or my wife’s the Speaker of the House.” But it appears the latter is a trump card trying to be played by Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul.
As the report says, Mr. Pelosi was drunk out of his mind when he crashed his vehicle. Pelosi fans might say his blood alcohol content was terribly high, though it was above the legal limit. Police obtained a BAC sample at 12:32 am.
But there is one important issue with this timeline. It was over two hours after Pelosi’s crash. The human body burns off alcohol at the rate of about .016 percent each hour. According to legal and medical experts, it doesn’t matter how big or small the person is.
So, Mr. Pelosi was smashed at the exact moment when he smashed his car into another vehicle at the intersection of California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road. But a new report says there was more in Mr. Pelosi’s bloodstream than just a barrel full of booze.
There was a trace of a “drug” found in his system. Pelosi’s speech was reportedly labored and slurred. But that didn’t stop Crazy Nancy’s significant other from playing the popularity card. When asked for his driver’s license, Pelosi also handed officers his CHP ii-99 Foundation card.
Nice try, Mr. Pelosi, but he still got his butt hauled off to jail for DUI. Now, will the lame prosecutors in Napa County, California, do their job? First, Pelosi’s actual BAC at the time of the crash can be “with legally admissible precision.”
The police report included information about Pelosi’s visible condition. He “had red, watery eyes,” was “unsteady on his feet,” and “he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath.”
“Pelosi allegedly injured the other driver while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug (under their combined influence) the first count in the two-charge complaint reads.” Paul Pelosi has made millions by cheating on the stock market with insider information.
But this time, the cheat may not be able to avoid the consequences of his terrible judgment. You can bet Nancy will try to throw her weight around and influence the outcome. This little California DUI case will tell a big story if Paul Pelosi isn’t slammed with a hefty sentence.
