She’s The Boss: The Disturbing Truth About Nancy Pelosi, by Rochelle Schweizer, promises to reveal to readers that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “image as a caring, grandmotherly public servant” is nothing more than a facade for a “ruling-class diva” whose power rests in back room deal-making and hypocrisy. The book delivers as promised. Here are the top five disturbing truths revealed in this new biography about the most dangerous and, perhaps, the most hypocritical woman in America, Nancy Pelosi.

5. Pelosi Defines “Compassion” as A System of Dealing Out Favors. Being brought up as a Roman Catholic in Baltimore’s “Little Italy”, Nancy Pelosi was very likely instructed that compassion is advanced in the world when individuals practice clearly defined works of mercy. In Pelosi’s world, this practice is cheapened and becomes more akin to “I’ll scratch your back and you scratch mine”. Schweizer describes in She’s The Boss how Pelosi’s father Thomas “Big Tommy” D’Alesandro, Jr., implemented a “favor file”. This file was a record of favors given to constituents which could be called in on election day. Little Nancy was taught “compassion” by her father in the rough and tumble world of Baltimore politics with the favor file he kept to gain and maintain power. Later, in San Francisco, Pelosi came to power using her own favor file. It is this sort of “compassion” that solidifies Pelosi’s power in her district.
