House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi was a victim of a shocking attack on her home shortly after she passed sweeping changes to the House, though the two appear unrelated.
The Speaker’s home in San Francisco’s upscale Pacific Heights neighborhood was vandalized with a pig’s head, blood and graffiti demanding “everything,” KRON4 reported.
Frustration over the lack of financial support spilled out into the streets of San Francisco on Friday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s house was vandalized with messages saying $2,000 isn’t even enough.
Vandals wasted no time with the new year as they left Pelosi’s home with fake blood and a pig’s head.
Some messages were also left for the speaker as it appears the vandals were upset with the failed $2,000 government stimulus checks.
“Cancel rent!” and “We want everything!” were seen in big black letters on Pelosi’s garage.
Audrey Carlson who has been a resident of the neighborhood for around four decades, described the attack as “cowardly.”
“It’s a fairly cowardly way to go about expressing your opinion,” the neighbor said.
“I don’t think that this is a useful way to go about it and it’s a terrible start to this new year when we’re hoping for less anger and hatred than we’ve had to deal with for the last year,” she said.
This came shortly after Speaker Pelosi and and Rules Committee Chairman Rep. James P. McGovern unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress.
The rules include changes to replace gendered language to gender neutral terms to address representative’s family members.
The resolution seeks to change “pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender neutral or removes references to gender, as appropriate, to ensure we are inclusive of all Members, Delegates, Resident Commissioners and their families – including those who are nonbinary,” the announcement said.
“As House Speaker, I am pleased to join Chairman Jim McGovern in introducing this visionary rules package, which reflects the views and values of the full range of our historically diverse House Democratic Majority,” Pelosi said. “Thanks to the leadership of Chairman McGovern and our Members, Democrats have crafted a package of unprecedented, bold reforms, which will make the House more accountable, transparent and effective in our work to meet the needs of the American people. These future-focused proposals reflect our priorities as a Caucus and as a Country – including crushing the coronavirus, addressing economic disparity, combating the climate crisis, advancing inclusion, and promoting integrity in government.”
“Through months of consultation across our caucus and Congress, we have developed a rules package that makes the People’s House more accountable and responsive to all Americans. This proposal doesn’t tinker around the edges of ethics reform. It contains historic ideas to protect whistleblowers and prevent everything from the undue influence of lawbreakers on the House Floor to the dissemination of deepfakes on government accounts. This proposal also shines a light on those struggling to get ahead in America today and ensures we remain focused on the most pressing issues facing our nation. I want to thank my colleagues, outside stakeholders, and all those who helped us develop these transformative ideas,” McGovern said.
