The NY Post reports that Paul Pelosi, husband of U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was removed from the membership of the California Highway Patrol’s 11-99 Foundation (CHP-11-99) on Wednesday, August 25.
Pelosi was informed of the agency’s decision by letter. The organization also requested that Pelosi return CHP 11-99 membership materials currently in his possession.
In a statement posted on their website, the organization said:
“After evaluating events that led up to Mr. Pelosi’s arrest and conviction, we are revoking Mr. Pelosi’s lifetime membership with the CHP 11-99 Foundation effective immediately.”
The organization went on to state that because Pelosi presented his identification credentials, whether to receive preferential treatment or not was a violation of the terms and conditions he agreed to when he became a member of the organization.
The organization made a similar statement on August 5, 2022, but was waiting to learn the outcome of Paul Pelosi’s trial earlier this week. When the 82-year-old pleaded guilty to the charges against him, CHP 11-99 rendered its final decision.
The group reminded its membership on Thursday,
“We’d like to remind all our members and the public that the purpose of 11-99 membership is to show support for the sacrifice and life-saving work CHP employees carry out daily across the state to keep our families safe. We will continue to evaluate any violation of our membership terms and conditions that is brought to our attention with due process and revoke any member who is found to violate those terms.”
The group said it would refund Pelosi’s donated funds once he returns their membership materials.
CHP 11-99 was founded in 1982 to provide emergency assistance and scholarships to law enforcement officers and their families. Those applying for membership must undergo an extensive background check and evaluation of their driving records.
