Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, is not having a great year.

An assailant broke into the Pelosi’s home and “violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” who was taken to a hospital for treatment, Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement. A law enforcement source told CNN the assailant used a hammer to attack Paul. Pelosi is expected to make a full recovery and the assailant is in police custody.

But Paul’s trouble’s have been ongoing for months. (RELATED: Without Evidence, Liberals Rush To Blame Republicans For Assault On Paul Pelosi)

Paul was involved in a collision in May with a Jeep while driving his Porsche. Dashcam footage released after the crash showed Pelosi tried to avoid taking a breathalyzer test and opted for a field sobriety test instead. A blood sample taken later that evening revealed Pelosi had a 0.082% blood alcohol content, which was above the state’s 0.08% legal limit.

Pelosi pled guilty to DUI charges and was sentenced to three years probation and five days in jail, of which he served four.

The California Highway Patrol 11-99, a charity that gives scholarships to the children of highway patrol employees, kicked Paul out of the association after he flashed his membership card to officers during his DUI arrest. The group said Pelosi’s “actions reflected poorly” on them.

Pelosi also had trouble on the financial front, selling up to $5 million worth of computer chips stock ahead of a vote on a bill handing billions to chip manufacturers.

Pelosi sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia, one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies, taking a loss of approximately $341,000, a financial disclosure reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation found. The Speaker disclosed in July that her husband had purchased between $1 million and $5 million worth in stock of Nvidia. After the DCNF reported on Paul’s purchase, Hammill told Fox News the Speaker had “no prior knowledge or subsequent involvement in any transactions.”

“To be clear, insider trading is already a serious federal criminal and civil violation and the Speaker strongly supports robust enforcement of the relevant statutes by the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission.”
