In what seemed to be his first public appearance since he was savagely attacked in his home, Paul Pelosi appeared at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday night.
He wore a black-brimmed hat and a black glove.
Nancy Pelosi laughed and chatted with her friends and colleagues at a reception at the Kennedy Center.
The appearance comes more than five weeks after a man broke into the couple’s San Francisco home on Broadway near Divisadero with the reported intention of taking Nancy Pelosi, hostage.
Police say that after finding Paul home alone, a man named David DePape struck Pelosi in the head with a hammer, as the two men struggled for control of the weapon.
The Kennedy Center Chairman paid tribute to the couple at one point during the ceremony.
He’s facing several charges, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, false imprisonment of an elder, and threats to a public official and their family, which he’s not guilty to.
Nancy Pelosi told CNN that the attack on her husband would affect her decision on staying in congress.
If Republicans regain control of the U.S., many thought Pelosi would retire.
House, but even after results showed that would likely be the case, Pelosi announced last month that she wouldn’t seek reelection to a leadership position.
