Pelosi used PAC funds to pay husband

PAC to the Future, the political action committee of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, funneled almost $100,000 over the past nine years to her husband's real estate and investment firm for rent and utility payments, according to a report by Jennifer Haberkorn of The Washington Times.  FEC records indicate that the payments quadrupled when Paul Pelosi took over as the PAC's treasurer in 2007.  "Last year, Mrs. Pelosi supported a bill that would have banned members of Congress from putting spouses on their campaign staffs. The bill — which passed the House in a voice vote but did not get out of a Senate committee — banned not only direct payments by congressional campaign committees and PACs to spouses for services including consulting and fundraising, but also 'indirect compensation,' such as payments to companies that employ spouses."
