Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) said Wednesday that his office will investigate GoFundMe's decision to halt a fundraiser for Canadian truckers protesting COVID-19 mandates. 

He said in a statement that his office is investigating the past and present practices of GoFundMe Inc. to determine whether the company is violating the state's Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

Paxton added that the crowdfunding platform's integrity has "come into question after it removed a multimillion-dollar fundraising campaign for the Canadian truckers 'Freedom Convoy' which is protesting vaccine mandates." 

He added that GoFundMe's response to what he called "an anti-mandate, pro-liberty movement" should alarm anyone using the donation platform as well as "any American wanting to protect their constitutional rights," Paxton said.
