SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: After Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi was attacked in the early hours of Friday, October 28, the attacker's daughter blogged about her father, describing him as a man "consumed by darkness."

David DePape, 42, broke into Pelosi's home in San Francisco in his underwear and beat the 82-year-old with a hammer, while shouting, "Where's Nancy?" reports the Daily Mail. In her blog which has since been taken down, Inti Gonzalez revealed that her father, DePape sexually abused her and her brothers when they were children. Her mother met DePape in Maui when she was pregnant with Gonzalez. After she was born, her mother and DePape moved to Bay Area.

By the time Gonzalez turned 13, her mother left DePape, who was becoming "toxic." After he was out of their lives, Gonzalez's brother, Nebosvod started having flashbacks of the time their father abused them. She writes that DePape "physically and sexually [abused] me and my brothers, which started when we were very young and continued until around 2008, when [Gonzalez] was 7." She stated that as she had endured "extreme abuse" that he inflicted on her and her brothers, his attack on Pelosi did not come as a surprise to her. 


She revealed that both her brothers and she started remembering their abuse at the hands of their father. Their mother filed a police report but "nothing was done about it" as it was managed poorly. "I love my father. He did genuinely try to be a good person but the monster in him was too strong to be safe around," she further wrote, adding, "he barely opened up about himself or his past but it was obvious that he grew up in hell and that we didn’t know the worst of it." 

She revealed that DePape had once apologized to the three children for his actions. "One time he sat us down in Tilden park. He looked like he was about to cry. He said, 'I'm sorry for everything I have done to you guys. I am more sorry than you will ever know'," wrote Gonzalez, who mentioned that she had not met him since her parents separated. She did, however, contact him four months ago, but the conversation ended when he refused to acknowledge the abuse. She also mentions his online blogs and websites and that he had strong opinions on several world issues. On the whole, she says, "There is some part of him that is a good person even though he has been very consumed by darkness."
