PayPal Zaps Money Beg By Woman Arrested For Riot

Dallas’s CBS News affiliate reports:

North Texas realtor Jenna Ryan, who traveled on a private plane to the January 6 Trump rally and later, the Capitol riot, was kicked off PayPal Thursday evening, Jan. 21, after attempting to solicit donations for “legal fees and losses.”

Ryan, who was arrested last Friday, Jan. 15, asked her Twitter followers for help Thursday afternoon, sharing a link to a PayPal account where supporters could offer a donation.

In a tweet, Ryan said, “I am accepting donations to pay legal fees and losses due to my arrest and charges by the FBI” and later claimed she had raised $1,000. By Thursday evening, PayPal had closed the account, according to Kim Eichorn, a PayPal spokesperson.
