Lock Her Up 2: Petition to prosecute Nancy Pelosi in salon row for Covid-19 violations gets 24k signatures
Around 24,000 people have signed a petition demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi be prosecuted for violating Covid-19 rules after getting some salon services in San Francisco last week. The petition has been addressed to San Francisco police Chief William Scott and has urged city leaders to prosecute Pelosi for breaking coronavirus rules on August 31 when she visited an eSalon in the city. The rules have prohibited indoor salon services.
The petition states, "Laws aren’t just for the 'little people'. Not only did Nancy Pelosi knowingly violate health ordinances, but just destroyed a business because she couldn’t take a [sic] ounce of responsibility. The salon owner gets death threats, while Pelosi has paid ZERO price for her hypocrisy."
"At a very minimum, Nancy Pelosi must be prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations. Now!" the petition reads. The petition had been posted by the Media Action Network which has vowed to 'expose and replace' liberal media.
Pelosi had been heavily criticized after security camera footage that had been obtained by Fox News showed Pelosi in San Francisco's e-salon with wet hair and no face mask. Pelosi believes that she was a victim of a setup and said, "I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times and that when they said, what, we’re able to accommodate people one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that."
"As it turns out, it was a setup, So I take responsibility for falling for a setup," Pelosi had said. The owner of the salon, Erica Kious, has denied these claims and called them 'absolutely false'. Kious said she had been forced to shut the doors of her business after receiving threats after exposing Pelosi's salon visit.
Kious spoke to Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week and had said, "I am actually done in San Francisco and closing my doors, unfortunately. I started to just get a ton of phone calls, text messages, emails, all my Yelp reviews … saying that they hope I go under and that I fail. So just a lot of negativity towards my business."
She had earlier called Pelosi's a visit 'double standard' and had said, "It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can't work."
A GoFundMe account has been started for Kious. The organizer of the fund had written, "At the conclusion of this fundraiser, ALL donations will go directly to Erica to pay off any debts from the business that she is forced to shut down, expenses to relocate and reopen in a new location."
Pelosi's salon visit was called out by many social media users besides being called out by POTUS Donald Trump. He took to Twitter to question Pelosi as to how she would deal with global negotiations given her claims that the incident was a 'set up'.
Trump had written, "Nancy Pelosi said she got 'set up' by the owner (a very good one) of a beauty parlor. If so, how will she do in negotiations against President Xi of China, President Putin of Russia, or Kim Jong Un of North Korea. Not so well, I suspect, but far better than Joe Hiden' would do!"
