Texas and Missouri open investigations into GoFundMe for blocking Freedom Convoy donations

The attorneys general of Missouri and Texas have announced that they are investigating GoFundMe for shutting down a fundraiser for the "Freedom Convoy" of truckers in Canada.

"GoFundMe’s response to an anti-mandate, pro-liberty movement should ring alarm bells to anyone using the donation platform and, more broadly, any American wanting to protect their constitutional rights," said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in a press release Wednesday.

Paxton also accused the fundraising platform of hypocrisy. "Many Texans showed their solidarity with Canadian truckers, who are proudly protesting vaccine mandates, by donating through GoFundMe," he said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

"Those Texans intended for their contributions to go to this worthy cause. However, GoFundMe’s abrupt refusal to channel donations to the truckers is hypocritical and ultimately reflects their woke values. After all, GoFundMe has no problem facilitating donations to many left-wing radical groups that have terrorized our country for years."
