Some background on the prime mover in the ongoing “coup” attempt.
Here is a great summary of pretty much every story I have heard in the last four decades in SF about Pelosi’s family background. Its been an open secret in the City for anyone who pays the slightest attention.
Actually a very good read if you want a good idea of how big city machine political corruption worked in the old days. In fact Baltimore sounds like a much cleaner operation than say Chicago or Boston at the time.
The big city political machine corruption now is very different, but just as all encompassing.
Its from 2017. So there are some new wrinkles since. Regarding her husbands very mysterious sources of wealth. Pelosi’s dad grew up dirt poor went into politics and died very rich. Pelosi’s husband came from a comfortable background but given his not terribly impressive business skills no one can explain how they ended up with somewhere around $100M. The declared interested dont agree with actual business done over the decades. Its looks nowhere near the very sophisticated and slick operation Willie Brown has run since the 1980’s.
Although still a lot more plausible than Obamas current $80M.
