GoFundMe campaign for owner of Nancy Pelosi’s salon raises almost $128K

This GoFundMe campaign is to dye for.

A fundraiser set up for the embattled owner of the salon where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had her hair done has raised almost $128,000 of its $300,000 goal as of Friday morning.

The campaign was set up by Amy Tarkanian, former Nevada Republican Party chairwoman and wife of Danny Tarkanian, who has run for public office several times in the state, according to the Washington Times.

“Erica Kious, a single mother of two and owner of eSalon, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got her hair done on Monday, is now being forced to shut down and relocate her business and family due to outrage and threats she is receiving,” Tarkanian wrote on the GoFundMe page.

“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,” she continued.

“San Francisco’s coronavirus guidelines allowed hair salons to reopen their businesses for outdoor services starting Tuesday, with clients seen one at a time. Haircuts are permitted, according to the guidance, but shampooing and hair coloring services are not,” Tarkanian wrote.

The former GOP chairwoman added that all the 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.”
