On September 2, 2020, Jonathan DeNardo released the following statement: “This office represents the interests of Jonathan DeNardo, a Califomia Certified Cosmetologist based out of San Francisco, California.
“In response to press inquiries on the matter, Mr. DeNardo can confirrnthat he indeed did provide professional stylist services to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) on August 32, 2020, at the ‘,Salon,” located at 2288 Union Street In San Francisco, California. Mr. DeNardo, at all times, took all requisite safety measures throughout his appointment vMh Speaker Pelosi, including sanitation of all service areas and wearing of CDC-recommended protective equipment, and thereafter ensured the premises were similarly sanitized following Speaker Pelosi’s departure.
“Mr. DeNardo has worked at eSalon for approximately six (6) years and regulailY comrnunicates .h the sal. owner, Erica Kious. In fact, Mr. DeNardo received advance approval from Ms. Kious the day prior to the appointment during a telephone discussion on August 29, 2o2o at 9:26 pm, wherein Mr. DeNardo advised Ms. Kious that he would not proceed with Speaker Pelosi’s appointment witho. Ms. Kious’ authorization. Ms. Kious took special interest in the appointment during this telephone call, wherein she made several vitriolic and incendiary comments about Speaker Pelosi and her purported responsibility for temporarily suspending operations of Ms. Kious’ business, despite sudi orders actually being put into place not by Speaker Pelosi, but by Governor Gavin Newsome and San Francisco Mayor London Breed. Ultimately, Ms. Kious authorized Mr. DeNardo to proceed .th Speaker Pelosi’s appointment.
“This office is in possession of photographs, videos and veitness infomiation that Ms. Kious, contrary to her prior statennents to the press, has actually been operating her business during the stay-at-home orders and sinnilar executive orders limiting in-store operations since as far back as April 2o2o. Ms. Kious is seen on photographs and video footage styling various clients’ hair, ignoring social distancing guidelines, and not wearing protective equipment (masks, as recently as a few days prior to Speaker Pelosi’s arrival at eSalon on August p, 2020. What’s more, Ms. Kious has also been actively encouraging and almost forcing stylists who operate at eSalon to violate such orders for her own financial benefit in the form of receiving lease payments.
“The fact that Ms. Kious is now objecting to Speaker Pelosi’s presence at eSalon, and from a simple surface-level review of Ms. Mous’ political leanings, it appears Ms. Kious is furthering a set-up of Speaker Pelosi for her own vain aspirations. Mr. DeNardo’s name has now been dragged through the mud for simply following Ms. Kious’ recommendations; he viishes to rnove forward with his efforts to earn an income and asks that his privacy be respected during this time.”
