A viral social media post claims that Nancy Pelosi “bought a 25,000,000 mansion in Florida. The Instagram post shows a screenshot of a tweet, which has been shared more than 8,000 times, that claims: “Nancy Pelosi just bought a $25,000,000 mansion in Florida. Remember this the next time she criticizes @GovRonDeSantis for keeping Florida open and taxes low.”
This is a false claim. Pelosi did not buy a $25 million home in Florida.
Other iterations of this rumor have been circulating on Twitter as well. Another widely shared tweet claims that “Nancy Pelosi just bought a 11,000 square foot $25 million mansion in Florida. Someone doesn’t want to pay exorbitant taxes in her home state she has ruined. Climate change and global warming thrown out the door.”
The tweet is accompanied by an image of a home that, through a reverse Google image search, has been identified as an authentic listing for a $25 million home in Hobe Sound, Florida. The home’s listing agent, Elizabeth Bourque of Southern Shore Properties told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the buyer of the home is not Pelosi, saying: “I can confirm the buyer is NOT Nancy Pelosi.”
Drew Hammill, deputy chief of staff to Pelosi, told The Dispatch: “This is completely false. There’s no such pending sale nor is the family looking or interested.”
