Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home districtincludes San Francisco.
Star-Kist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi's home district.
Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a majorcontributor to Pelosi.
Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoaemploying 75% of the Samoan workforce.
Paul Pelosi, Nancy's husband, owns $17 milliondollars of Star-Kist stock.
In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increasedfrom $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted fromthe increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higherwage. This would make Del Monte products less expensivethan their competition's.
Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed,Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 milliondollars for an 'economic development credit in AmericanSamoa'.
