Staff at San Francisco Pelosi Building Told to Work From Home Over High Crime in Area

Staff members at the Nancy Pelosi federal building in San Francisco were told to work remotely due to unsafe conditions in the area.

The rise in criminal activity near the building named after the former Democratic House speaker led to quick responses over the irony of the situation.

“In light of the conditions at the (Federal Building), we recommend employees … maximize the use of telework for the foreseeable future,” the memo said, according to Breitbart News.

"This memo was released just one day after 'San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins blamed local judges for exacerbating the city’s drug crisis by releasing people accused of offenses before they can go to trial,'" it added.

"The skyscraper is home to multiple federal agencies, including HHS, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the office of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi," National Review reported.

"The longtime Democratic former House leader raised the public safety issues with the U.S. attorney for the northern district of California last week, a spokesperson from her office told the Chronicle. Pelosi’s five-person staff won’t be working remotely, however, he confirmed," it added.

The news comes after Gov. Gavin Newsom said in June that he would expand the number of California Highway Patrol officers in San Francisco to help fight crime.

Mayor London Breed, however, was in Maui when the wildfires began, according to her office. She was safely able to escape the fire though many questions remain over her being in Hawaii when her city's federal building remains unsafe for workers.

The conditions add to concerns citywide over the decline in San Francisco over crime, drugs, and homelessness.

The city stands in strong need of a makeover after years of being led by Democrats as even federal workers feel the need to work from home.
