House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s campaign committee has repeatedly promised her donors she would personally match their financial contributions, but as of the last reporting period she hadn’t provided a dime of her own money, records show. I have deliberately placed myself on various Democrat mailing lists (there are few sacrifices I won’t make for our readers) and can confirm that I have received many pleas for donations from Nancy with the offer of matching what I donate. Nancy Pelosi for Congress sent at least 50 fundraising emails from January through March, pledging she would “personally” match contributions up to a certain multiple. As Axios notes, candidates can donate unlimited sums to their own campaigns, but they face the same limits on donations to other candidates as the rest of us do. So Nancy Pelosi could not personally match donations to Democrat candidates in excess of $2,800 per election and $5,000 per year. If Pelosi “obtain[ed] money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises” using interstate electronic communications, then isn’t she liable for up to a million bucks in fines and up to thirty years in the federal pen?
