House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district office in San Francisco is costing taxpayers far more than the rent paid by any other member of Congress: a whopping $18,736 a month.

The rental price was reported by Roll Call and Fox News on Monday.

The Democratic congresswoman moved last fall 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.

Hammill cited the new building's increased security measures as one reason for the expense.

"The new office space is 3,075 square feet, nearly a third larger than the old space, which was of inadequate size," he told FoxNews.com.

"As speaker, the security needs are different," he said. "The new San Francisco Federal Building offers enhanced security features, which were a major factor in the decision to move offices."
