(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Democrat heavyweight Nancy Pelosi’s days of never-ending PR and privileged bliss may finally be over – ironically, thanks to the woke policies she has pushed for – as a GOP US senator has demanded the closure of the Nancy Pelosi Federal Building in San Francisco over rampant crime.
In 2022, the 18-story federal office building in Francisco was named after the then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in President Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023.”
US Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) is advocating for the closure of the Speaker Nancy Pelosi Federal Building in San Francisco following its transformation into a hazardous area plagued by crime and drug activity, The Washington Times reports.
The facility, once praised for its public accessibility, now exemplifies the deterioration affecting many US cities and government mismanagement, the report points out.
Senator Ernst compared the current state of the building to a scene from a dystopian horror film, citing frequent muggings, sporadic gunfire, and an alarming number of drug overdoses and deaths in the vicinity this year.
The General Services Administration (GSA), which manages the property, had previously leased space to various government branches, including the US Health Department.
However, earlier this year, the increasing crime danger compelled these agencies to tell their employees to work remotely.
Emphasizing the availability of other safer federal facilities in San Francisco, Senator Ernst has called for relocating the building’s federal employees and suspending its operations until the safety issues are resolved.
“With at least five other federal facilities within the San Francisco area where taxpayers and government employees could interact face to face without fearing for their lives, I am calling for the offices and workers within the Speaker Pelosi Federal Building to be relocated and the building shut down until it is no longer a threat to public safety,” the Iowa Republican declared in a statement.
The 18-story structure, which opened in 2007, was intended to serve as a beacon of civic sustainability, marrying eco-conscious design with a layout promoting democracy among employees and public access through a spacious plaza, according to The Times.
However, the GSA conceded in 2019 that the plaza’s original design failed due to complex social issues, leading to a redesign to enhance safety and security.
Today, the environment around the building is markedly different, with residents frequently encountering alarming scenes like bloody sidewalks and human waste, the report points out.
