If there is one thing that Americans truly cannot stand, it is the seeming invincibility of the political ruling class.
Our nation was founded on the idea that we were all created equal, and that those who are elected to represented us as public servants would never become an untouchable, wealthy cabal of elitists.
Spoiler alert: It happened anyway, and there is no better example than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi getting caught breaking the coronavirus ordinances in San Francisco in order to get her hair done. When Pelosi got caught, she even tried to suggest that she was being “set up” by the salon owner, who just yesterday announced that the backlash she’s received over the incident is forcing her to close her doors for good.
Americans were incensed by Pelosi’s actions, and are now calling for her to be held accountable.
The petition, which aims to garner 25,000 signatures, is addressed to San Francisco Police Chief William Scott and urges city leaders to prosecute the 81-year-old Speaker for breaking coronavirus rules and restrictions — which have barred indoor salon services — during her August 31 visit to eSalon.
The language of the petition left no doubt as to how many of the signees felt.
“Laws aren’t just for the ‘little people,’” the letter 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 continues. “At a very minimum, Nancy Pelosi must be prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations. Now!”
Heading into Friday morning, the petition had already garnered 21,400 signatures – well on its way to the desire goal.
