Salon Owner Accused of 'Set-Up' by Pelosi Raises $300K to Relocate

The owner of eSalon, Erica Kious, told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Wednesday that the salon was closing. "It's a powerful reminder that the common things that bind us all together as Americans are far more meaningful and lasting than political and ideological differences that get so much attention and focus", she continued.

Right-wing supporters who celebrated Kious' leak of the Pelosi video last week clamored to throw cash at a crowdfunding campaign for her.

"Hairstylists and other small business owners in San Francisco and elsewhere are doing what they need to do to survive", Kious said in a virtual news conference last week. "It's a little scary and sad", she told Carlson.

Earlier this month, US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was caught on camera without a protective mask while visiting a closed hair salon in San Francisco, California, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, violating local restrictions.

But Kious has denied that, telling Fox News: '[Pelosi] had called the stylist, or her assistant did, and had made the appointment so the appointment was already booked so there was no way I could have set that up.

The money will also be used toward expenses for relocation and reopening business in another area and put the Pelosi salon visit controversy behind her.

LG claims the phone's hinge mechanism is highly durable and has proven to be reliable even after 200,000 swivels in its testing. A single application can be expanded to both screens or two applications can be displayed simultaneously, one on each display.

San Francisco beauty parlors weren't supposed to open until September 1, the day after the speaker had her treatment.

Former Nevada GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian set up the account for Kious.

'It was a set up, and I take responsibility for falling for a setup, ' she added. "I do not believe she was set up-if she wanted to obey the law she could have and not have had her hair done". They repeatedly slammed POTUS for not wearing a mask in public and for not heeding the so-called scientific advice concerning the virus. Do you wear a mask when you're washing your hair?

"I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I've been to over the years many times", Pelosi said.

Pelosi responded by accusing Kious of setting her up, an allegation that the speaker's hairdresser backed up, according to a report on the New York Post. 'And that picture is when I just came out of the bowl'.

While the owner claims she felt betrayed by Pelosi coming to the salon while lockdowns are still in effect, Jonathan DeNardo-the stylist who blew out Pelosi's hair-came to the defense of the representative and released a comment through his lawyers. "At a very minimum, Nancy Pelosi must be prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations".
