WATCH: Patriotic Salon Owner Shelley Luther’s New Senate Campaign Ad Calls Out COVID-19/BLM Hypocrisy
Patriotic salon owner Shelley Luther is holding nothing back as she attempts to be a Texas state senator in the 30th district.
She is releasing a powerful advertisement that sums up the COVID-19 shutdown hypocrisy in which law-abiding business owners have been destroyed while Black Lives Matter thugs have been allowed to riot and destroy.
“When thousands of demonstrators rallied during the shutdown to defund the police, the politicians said nothing. But when I opened my small business so moms could feed their kids, they threw me in jail,” Luther said in the ad.
“But I fought back and they backed down. I’m Shelley Luther. I’m pro-Trump, pro-law enforcement, and I believe every job is essential,” she stated.
Her ad that is set to hit the Texas airwaves in the days to come can be seen in full here.
Big League Politics has reported on Luther’s crusade against shutdown edicts that have made a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution:
After the governor and attorney general intervened on her behalf, Dallas, Tex. salon owner Shelley Luther will be freed from jail per an order from the state supreme court…
Tex. Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton sprung into action after Luther was sentenced to a week in jail by an Obama-crony judge for opening her salon against government edicts.
“I find it outrageous and out of touch that during this national pandemic, a judge, in a county that actually released hardened criminals for fear of contracting COVID-19, would jail a mother for operating her hair salon in an attempt to put food on her family’s table,” Paxton said.
“The trial judge did not need to lock up Shelley Luther. His order is a shameful abuse of judicial discretion, which seems like another political stunt in Dallas. He should release Ms. Luther immediately,” he added.
“Compliance with executive orders during this pandemic is important to ensure public safety,” Abbott said in a statement on Wednesday. “However, surely there are less restrictive means to achieving that goal than jailing a Texas mother.”
“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen,” Abbott explained. “That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order.”
Luther is running to replace State Senator Pat Fallon, who departed his office to go to the U.S. House. Early voting for the special election will begin on Sept. 14.
