Pelosi: 49ers Player Accused of Domestic Violence Should Not Play

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., hammered her hometown football team Wednesday, saying the San Francisco 49ers should not allow Defensive End Ray McDonald to play following allegations he assaulted his pregnant fiancée in August.

“It’s hard for me to understand how people are punching-out their wives at home … but it does happen an it’s and issue we’ve been working on for a very long time,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “Our coach says, ‘innocent until proven guilty, due process,’ all of that, but the fact is he shouldn’t have played.”
