I HAVE NO IDEA WHETHER ANY OF THIS IS TRUE.
The Paul Pelosi thing is very strange
The story goes: David DePape shows up at the Pelosi residence. He is let inside by Paul, because he claims to be a friend of Nancy. Something happens, Paul Pelosi manages to lock himself in the bathroom, and call the police. When the police show up, they have to break into the residence through the back door, whereupon they observe DePape take a hammer from Pelosi, and proceed to strike him on the head with it. At some point either before or during these events, DePape had stripped down to his underwear (some versions of the story have retracted the claim that DePape was in his underwear, but it seems so common among different generally trustworthy sources that I don’t see any reason to distrust this). I see conflicting reports about Pelosi being in his underwear as well, but let’s just assume this is false for now. Unless more details are released, we basically have no idea what occurred here. Critical pieces are clearly missing to make this narrative make any sort of sense.
Former partner of accused Paul Pelosi attacker DePape reveals new details about suspect
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The former partner of the man accused of violently attacking Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband at their San Francisco home on Friday is revealing new details about the suspect.
"Hello this is Gypsy Taub. I am the ex-life partner of David DePape and the mother of his children," said Oxane Taub, calling from the Californian Institution For Women in Corona, California.
Taub -- better known as "Gypsy" -- is a well-known nudist activist who spoke with ABC7 in 2013 at a protest in San Francisco.
"We just wanted to test the waters to see how much the police department respected our first amendment rights," said Taub in 2013. Now she's revealing a longtime relationship with David DePape.
"He is mentally ill. He has been mentally ill for a long time," said Taub, who last year was found guilty on 20 counts, including the attempted abduction of a 14-year-old boy near his Berkeley high school.
Taub told ABC7 News that she and DePape met more than 20 years ago. Together they raised their two sons and her daughter until about seven years ago. She described a time DePape returned home after disappearing for a year.
"He came back in very bad shape. He thought he was Jesus. He was constantly paranoid, thinking people were after him," Taub said. "And it took a good year or two to get back to, you know, being halfway normal."
