The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Paul, was assaulted by an intruder with a hammer this morning inside his San Francisco home. Paul was rushed to the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.
Law enforcement told the media the intruder shouted “Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?” before assaulting Paul. The speaker’s office said in a statement he was attacked early this morning by an assailant who broke into his house.
The assailant is in custody. Nancy Pelosi was not in San Francisco at the time. Drew Hammill, spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said:
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi.
What happened to Paul Pelosi last night is horrific.
Heidi & I are praying for him & Nancy & the entire Pelosi family. May God’s protection be upon them.
We can have our political differences, but violence is always wrong & unacceptable.
