The Wicked Witch of the Far Left Gets New $18,000 a Month SF Digs, Thanks Taxpayer!
This makes my skin crawl. Put that asshat in an $800 a month Tenderloin studio next to the rest of the crackheads and call it a day.
$18,736 a month! I've SEEN the new federal building, it's only two blocks down from one of San Francisco's most notorious crack alleys (6th St) and doesn't even have much of a view. What the fuck are we paying this for?
Also, if this is a "federal" building as it is called, why is a federal employee paying rent? Can someone please clarify that for me? Where does the money go, BACK to the government?
Last fall, Speaker Nancy Pelosi moved her district office into the new federal building in San Francisco. The move quadrupled the rent she pays, and her new $18,736 monthly bill is almost double the next-highest rental paid by a Member of the House.
Listen, we all know it's expensive here. Why not force Pelosi out to Oakland like we do with everyone else? I am sure Waste Management has a garbage barge or two they'd be happy to rent out to her bitch ass.
The reason given for the move is that the Speaker of the House needs better security, which the new federal building can offer. Yes, I'm sure being centrally located just one block from some of the most ravenous drug addicts in our city is a total security upgrade. And we all know she's going to need it now that California taxpayers know how much she's paying for this new spot.
“After being based in the Burton Federal Building for over 20 years, we were no longer able to meet the needs of San Franciscans in the existing space. The new office space is 3,075 square feet, nearly a third larger than the old space, which was of inadequate size. Additionally, the new building is more centrally located, right off of Market Street, which allows for easier access for constituents via public transportation,” Hammill said. Pelosi’s old office was about a half mile away, near San Francisco’s city hall.
[Pelosi press secretary Drew] Hammill added: “As Speaker, the security needs are different. The new San Francisco Federal Building offers enhanced security features, which were a major factor in the decision to move offices.”
The new federal building is also an award-winning “green” design, “consuming less than half the power of a standard office tower, saving taxpayer funds on utility costs,” Hammill said.
Fuck you and your "green" design, what the taxpayer isn't paying in utilities is more than made up by rent.
