Pelosi’s Office Denies Daughter’s Retirement Claim

BigGovernment.com ran an interview this week with Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra, who said that her mother would get out of politics if not for her loyalty to her donors:

She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly. They know she wants to leave, though. They think she’s destined for the wilderness. She has very few days left. She’s 71, she wants to have a life, she’s done. It’s obligation, that’s all I’m saying.

Alexandra Pelosi later told BigGovernment that she said “greatness” and not “wilderness.” In any case, Pelosi’s office quickly issued a denial:

Nadeam Elshami, a spokesman for the House minority leader, said it’s simply not true.

“This may be wishful thinking on the part of a right-wing blog, but it is totally untrue,” Elshami said. “When the day comes and Leader Pelosi’s work is done, she won’t be announcing it there.”

True. We’ll know Nancy Pelosi’s work is done when she’s announcing her retirement as the country is declaring bankruptcy and being repo’d by China. Hopefully Nancy cuts her daughter some slack though and realizes that her words had to be passed before we found out what was in them.


Alexandra Pelosi didn’t deny uttering the remark but declined to expand in an email to POLITICO.

“I don’t speak for Nancy Pelosi — I was merely projecting my own personal opinions,” Alexandra Pelosi wrote in an email.

It’s a good thing Christmas dinner has already been served at the Pelosi household, or else Alexandra might have found herself in the other room at the card table where the kids and/or people who provided stock tips that didn’t pan out were made to sit.

Forget about any talk of retirement — Pelosi’s more immediate problem is that “Occupy Hawaii Island” could soon be making an appearance near her vacation spot. Naturally Pelosi will go join in because she’s such a loyal supporter.
