Weeks ago, we learned that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested with a DUI charge.
The incident happened near their Napa Valley estate. Pelosi allegedly crashed his car into another vehicle and was arrested. But now, weeks later, the police have released the mugshot.

Pelosi, 82, was brought to the police station after he crashed his car into another vehicle. Neither he nor the other driver was injured. He later posted $5,000 bail.
Some mind wonder why it took so long for the local police to release the mugshot. According to Napa County, the police department and district attorney decide to release or withhold mug shots.
It could have been that the Pelosi family was angling to get the local authorities to keep the picture under wraps.
After all, Nancy Pelosi and her party are fighting for survival this midterm season. One false move can hurt her or her party’s chances.
And the last thing she needs is for Republicans to circulate a photo of her husband in police custody.
But regardless of what went on behind the scenes, the local police did release the photo, two weeks after the arrest.
Nancy Pelosi has refused to comment on the incident. The only statement was released by her spokesperson, who made a point to say she was on the East Coast.
It sounded as if the Speaker was eager to let everyone know she was not involved in the situation. Distancing yourself from your own husband?
That doesn’t look great, Pelosi.
Any other responses from Pelosi have yet to be released. I’m sure she’ll get around to it, eventually.
