Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called for a priest to perform an "exorcism" in their family's home following a hammer attack on her husband Paul Pelosi last year, according to her daughter.
Alexandra Pelosi, her daughter, shared the account with the New York Times.

"I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her. Over Thanksgiving, she had priests coming, trying to have an exorcism of the house and having prayer services," Alexandra Pelosi told the New York Times.
"He's a strong person, athletic. This has been tough. It's going to be about three or four more months before he's really back to normal," she added.
Paul Pelosi's alleged attacker, David DePape, has been arrested and charged in the incident.

"DePape has been hit with six state charges attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, threatening the family member of a public official, and elder abuse," the Blaze reported.
"He also faces federal charges of attempted kidnapping and assault. DePape had pleaded not guilty to all of the state and federal charges," it added.
The latest account was not revealed previously, with Alexandra offering the news months after the events occurred.
Nancy Pelosi, affiliated with the Catholic Church, has previously been under criticism for her pro-abortion views that are at odds with the teachings of her church.
At least in this case, Pelosi has turned to her religious tradition for help after her husband's attack in their own home.
