Far-left activist charged with felony for vandalism at Nancy Pelosi's CA home

In an unusual case involving liberal ire at former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a leftist protestor has been hit with felony charges for allegedly vandalizing the lawmaker's California home over her stance on Israel, as the Daily Caller reports.

The accused, Heather Phipps, is an activist affiliated with Code Pink, a far-left group currently protesting on behalf of the Palestinian cause and one which has confronted Pelosi in the past for her support of Israel in its conflict with Hamas.

Destructive rampage

Phipps is accused of felony vandalism in connection to harm done to Pelosi's garage done, according to the outlet.

She reportedly also caused harm to city-owned sidewalks and streets near the congresswoman's residence in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.

The total dollar value of the damage caused reportedly came to $5,648, according to the local Department of Public Work, and the amount included the cost of removing paint from public surfaces.

It was not just Phipps who got herself into trouble at Pelosi's house, as another Code Pink demonstrator, Cynthia Papermaster, is facing a misdemeanor count of vandalism for leaving paint-covered handprints on the legislator's garage door.

Not their first rodeo

As The Hill reports, Code Pink activists also confronted Pelosi earlier this month in Washington over a proposed stand-alone Israel aid bill.

Members of the group were seen shouting questions at the former speaker, demanding to know whether she planned to support a measure that would earmark $17.6 billion in aid to the Jewish state.

The protestors yelled at Pelosi and branded her an “Israel apologist” and demanded that she say “no to genocide.”

In the end, the bill did not achieve passage in the House, and Pelosi cast her vote in opposition to the measure.

Hard feelings abound

The tensions among Code Pink protestors and Pelosi are not new, as the Daily Caller also reported on a confrontation that occurred back in October, when demonstrators accosted the former speaker over the issue of Israel, to which she replied, “Go back to China, where your headquarters is.”

Pelosi also courted criticism from Code Pink and the Council on American-Islamic Relations for suggesting that certain elements within pro-Palestinian advocacy groups could be receiving financial support from Russia, assertions those groups denied.
