Pelosi's August Recess Plans

Take a look at Nancy Pelosi's plans for the summer recess: next Friday she will hold an "issues conference" for 170 guests at her San Francisco mansion, then she'll tote her guests along to a posh Napa Valley winery with building designed by Frank Gehry, which happens to be near the Pelosi's own vineyard that is worth somewhere between $5 million and $25 million. The attendees will all be major league donors who have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Party in the last cycle. The revelations, reported by Politico, shine a spotlight on Pelosi's high-society connections, as well as her important role in courting wealthy, influential donors.
