(Politico) — Nancy Pelosi’s office says her daughter is wrong when she says the California Democrat wants to leave politics.
Alexandra Pelosi, the Democratic activist and filmmaker, said in an interview with Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government, said that her mother is only staying in Washington for her donors.
“She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly,” Alexandra Pelosi told Big Government. “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.”
Nadeam Elshami, a spokesman for the House minority leader, says 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.”
