Thousands of Americans have signed a petition calling for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to be prosecuted after she violated San Francisco COVID-19 rules to illegally get her hair done at one of the city’s salons in last week.
The petition, aimed at San Francisco Police Chief William Scott, has already gathered over 21,000 signatures. At the time Pelosi entered eSalon on August 31, San Francisco prohibited all salons from accepting customers. After owner Erika Kious released footage Pelosi inside the salon without a mask on, Pelosi attempted to blame Kious, calling it a “setup.”
Pelosi has spent the last six months hammering President Trump for not taking COVID-19 seriously enough, laying the blame for over 190,000 deaths directly at his feet. At this time, Pelosi has faced absolutely zero consequences from the city for directly flouting the rules.
“Laws aren’t just for the ‘little people,’” the petition reads. “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,” the letter continued. “At a very minimum, Nancy Pelosi must be prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations. Now!”
Salon owner Erika Kious revealed on Friday that she is being forced out of business and the city as a whole as a tsunami of hate was unleashed on her after exposing Pelosi.
“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,” Kious explained. “So just a lot of negativity towards my business.”
After offering a non-apology to the residents of San Francisco — who have been under lockdown longer than any other locality in the US — Pelosi blithely moved on from the scandal and back to attacking President Trump over his response to the virus.
