(ConservativePeak.com)- The salon owner who outed Democrat House Speaker for flouting the rules and attending a hair appointment with an independent contractor has been threatened by lawyers and harassed by Democrats – but now the community is coming together to help her out. After Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused salon owner Erica Kious of organizing some kind of “setup” to trap her – and hiring a lawyer to intimidate her – more than $147,000 has been raised on GoFundMe in just 24 hours.
The number, which continues to grow, was initially meant to generate as little as $300, but people have come together to help Kious, the owner of eSalon, shut down her business and relocate as a result of Speaker Pelosi’s attacks.
The page explains how Kious, a single mother of two, is being “forced to shut down and relocate her business and family due to outrage and threats she is receiving.”
“A maskless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited eSalon on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic,” the page continues, before explaining that San Francisco guidelines state that hair salons could open at this time.
Nancy Pelosi suggested during a press conference that she didn’t know she was doing anything wrong, and refused to apologize. Instead, she apologized for trusting the business and not expecting them to orchestrate a “setup.”
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times, and that they said we are able to accommodate people, one person at a time, and that we could set up that time, I trusted that,” she said. “As it turns out, it was a setup. And I take responsibility for falling for a setup.”
Incredibly, she then demanded the salon apologize to her, hired a lawyer, and her supporters are now driving the salon owner out of town.
That “setup” by the way involved Pelosi or a member of her staff calling up the independent contractor who works at the salon, making the booking, and then attending the booking in violation of San Francisco rules and without a mask.
