Sen Ted. Cruz Cheers Salon Owner Who Violated Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s Stay-At-Home Order, Placed Lives At Risk

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is supporting salon owner Shelley Luther who violated Texas Gov.Greg Abbott’s stay-at-home order and a cease-and-desist order from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins (VIDEO BELOW).

Dallas County State District Judge Eric Moye sentenced Luther to seven days in jail and a fine of $7,000 for civil contempt, but offered to let Luther go free if she closed her salon until Gov. Abbott’s order is lifted on May 8, but she chose jail instead, notes KTVT.

Luther ignored her willful choice to violate health orders and place others at risk of the deadly coronavirus: “I have to disagree with you when you say that I’m selfish, because feeding my kids is not selfish,” reports WOAI.

Luther also falsely claimed that Judge Moye believed the law was important than feeding kids, who are eligible for food stamps under state and federal laws. Luther apparently failed to realize her salon would be closed by the court either way.

Cruz ignored Luther’s violation of Gov. Abbott’s health order, and tried to pretend on Twitter that Luther was being jailed “for cutting hair.”
