Sen. Ted Cruz Gets a Haircut at Salon A La Mode After Owner Shelley Luther Released from Jail


U.S. Senator Ted Cruz is showing his support for Shelly Luther, the Texas salon owner who was jailed for opening her salon to be able to feed her children.

On Friday, Cruz went into Salon A La Mode for a haircut from Luther.

After his haircut, Cruz said, "We’re thrilled to be with you and know the whole State of Texas is standing with you, so thank you for your courage."

The news comes as the battle intensifies over liberty, freedoms, and the government's authority to mandate economic shutdowns.

According to Fox News, Luther was jailed because she refused to apologize to a Texan judge:

Texas lawmakers rushed to Luther’s defense after she was ordered to serve seven days’ jail time, reportedly one for each of the days her salon was open prior to the state loosening lockdown restrictions.

Luther was given three choices by the judge: she could offer an apology for selfishness, pay a fine and shutdown until Friday, or serve jail time. Luther refused to apologize.

"I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I'm selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish," she told the judge. "I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids. So sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not going to shut the salon."

Luther's bravery has earned her support from many people, including Senator Ted Cruz and former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin.
