In Paul Pelosi’s driving under the influence (DUI) case, government watchdog organizations have warned against any “special treatment” being given to him.
The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pleaded not guilty to DUI charges last week. Now Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) executive director Kendra Arnold and Protect the Public’s Trust director Michael Chamberlain have weighed in on those charges, reported Fox News.
Paul’s treatment under the law “is further evidence of the existence of a double standard in the DC Swamp,” said Chamberlain. He noted that government officials and those close to them “need to be held to the same standards of conduct and treatment under the law.” He added that it appears as if this may be the “latest incarnation of family members of powerful government officials being given a pass for their illegal or reckless behavior that the rest of us would never get away with.”
