Pelosi Says She Was “Set Up” By SF Hair Salon Owner

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to apologize Wednesday for her controversial visit to a San Francisco hair salon, calling it “a set up” and suggesting that she had been tricked by the business owner. Pelosi said she took responsibility for falling for the “set up” to have her hair done inside at a San Francisco salon on Monday, which is prohibited by the city’s regulations.

The San Francisco Democrat said if anyone was owed an apology, it was her by the salon. “I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up,” she said. “I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times and when they said, ‘We’re able to accommodate people one person at a time,’ I trusted that,” the speaker said during a combative exchange with reporters.
