San Francisco is a high-rent city. Just ask Nancy Pelosi.

The House Speaker’s district office in the new federal building in San Francisco costs a whopping $18,736 a month — the highest rental paid by any member of the House — or, more precisely, the highest rental paid by taxpayers on behalf of a member of the House. The rental price was reported by Roll Call on Monday.

The Democratic congresswoman moved last fall from her old office in the Burton Federal Building, which she occupied for 20 years, to a “greener” space in the city’s new federal building — a move and a high price that her spokesman, Drew Hammill, says was amply justified.
