Government Employees Told to Work From Home Due to Crime Crisis Near Nancy Pelosi Federal Building

Hundreds of government employees at a federal facility in San Francisco, California were urged to work from home due to the rampant crime in the area surrounding the building, which is named after former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Biden Administration urged the employees, mostly government bureaucrats, not to report to work at the 18-story Speaker Nancy Pelosi Federal Building, which is adjacent to the infamous Tenderloin district, plagued by drug addicts, homeless vagrants, and other violent criminals. Even Pelosi herself voiced concerns about safety in the area during a recent meeting with the U.S. Attorney’s office.

“The safety of workers in our federal buildings has always been a priority for Speaker Emerita Pelosi, whether in the building or on their commutes,” said Pelosi spokesman Aaron Bennett in a statement. “Federal, state, and local law enforcement—in coordination with public health officials and stakeholders—are working hard to address the acute crises of fentanyl trafficking and related violence in certain areas of the city.

“In light of the [disgusting and unsafe] conditions at the [Speaker Nancy Pelosi Federal Building] we recommend employees … maximize the use of telework for the foreseeable future,” said Cheryl Campbell, the Health and Human Services (HHS) assistant secretary for administration, in a memo on August 4th.

The San Francisco Chronicle has additionally reported that the Pelosi building “has long been a locus of some of the city’s most intractable problems.”

Dozens of dealers routinely plant themselves on, next to, or across the street from the property, operating in shifts as users smoke, snort, or shoot up their recent purchases,” the Chronicle wrote in a recent report. “The property’s concrete benches are an especially popular site for users to get high, socialize, or pass out.”

Ironically, the day Campbell issued her memo was the same day that Biden himself demanded that federal agencies “aggressively execute” efforts to bring employees back to the office for in-person work, after over three years of remote working due to the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic.
