Liberal Judge Eric Moyé is yet another reason to vote Republican 2020 full ballot. It’s an abuse of judicial power that has went to other liberals heads recently. Moyé sentenced Shelly Luther to a 7 day jail sentence for opening her Texas business Salon À la Mode. Luther opened her hair salon in violation of Governor Greg Abbott’s order shuttering all non-essential businesses. 😡
Moyé also fined the salon $7,000 and ordered Luther to pay $500 for each day the salon continued operating from May 6, the date of her court appearance, to May 8, when Abbott will allow barbers, hair salons and cosmetologists to re-open their businesses.
Update 05/08/20: Shelly Luther is FREE! A Dallas salon owner was released from jail Thursday after a backlash from leading Republicans over her treatment for defying a statewide stay-at-home order.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said, I find it outrageous and out of touch that during this national pandemic, a liberal judge, in a county that 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 in a letter to Moyé. The judge did not need to lock up Shelley Luther, Paxton continued. His order is a shameful abuse of judicial discretion, which seems like another political stunt in Dallas. He should release Ms. Luther immediately.
Paxton’s letter also pointed out that Dallas County has been releasing prisoners to avoid a coronavirus outbreak, and so it “can certainly stand to release one more, a mother whose only crime was operating a small business in an effort to feed her children.
It’s time America takes off her blinders and sees the light. Why is it Democrat / Liberal officials are becoming Abusive Tyrants? We can’t fix STUPID! – but we CAN VOTE EM OUT!
