Texas Salon Owner Admits to 'The View' She Received PPP Funds Before Court Date

Shelley Luther, the Texas hair salon owner who received national attention for defying orders to keep her shop temporarily closed during the coronavirus pandemic, admitted on Monday morning that she had received $18,000 in stimulus funds days before her fateful court appearance.

Luther became a conservative hero when she was briefly jailed last week following her refusal to apologize to a Texas judge after she was found guilty of civil and criminal contempt for violating a temporary restraining order by keeping her shop open despite stay-at-home orders. Sentenced to seven days in jail and a $7,000 fine, Luther was quickly freed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and her fine was paid by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

Appearing on the popular ABC talk show The View, Luther was confronted on her previous claims that she violated the state’s shelter-in-place orders because she and her shop’s stylists were facing financial hardships.

“You applied for small business loans and unemployment, and you did receive some aid from the government,” co-host Sunny Hostin noted. “You received $18,000 from the government.”

2. Isn't Ms. Luther also the beneficiary of a GoFundMe campaign?

I saw a report yesterday (maybe Crooks and Liars or maybe Wonkette?) that Shelley Luther was recruited by some ad hoc group protesting the lockdown to serve as the face of anti-lockdown. The group had a GoFundMe working, and had raised some six figure sum on her behalf. It wasn't clear if Luther had gotten any of that money, but it certainly didn't enhance her pose as a plucky entrepreneur battling the mean government bureaucrats who were trying to strangle her dream of running a salon.

3. Yes, to the tune of $500,00 and counting.
