The San Francisco Chronicle reports on America's aristocracy:
California's sports and political worlds are colliding through the dormant United Football League franchise in Sacramento, with several coaches and employees suing owner Paul Pelosi - the millionaire husband of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco - claiming he failed to pay them after promising to do so.The lifestyles of the politically connected super-rich.
Five employees of the Sacramento Mountain Lions - including former Raiders defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan, who held the same position there - say Paul Pelosi, a real-estate investor and businessman, owes them $250,000, according to the suit filed this month in San Francisco Superior Court.
That would seem like pocket change to Pelosi. He and his wife, the top Democrat in the House, are worth $26 million, according to federal financial disclosure statements. Their investments range from real estate around the Bay Area to their vineyard and home in St. Helena.
The league's founder is Pelosi's friend Bill Hambrecht, a San Francisco investment banker who managed Google's initial public offering.
