GoFundMe shuts down legal defense fund for Info Wars' host Owen Shroyer: Host of the Austin, TX-based (Congressional Districts: 17, 21, 25, 31, and 35) Info Wars' "WAR ROOM" podcast, Owen Shroyer, announced Friday night that he had been charged with a crime in relation to his attendance at the Jan. 6, 2021 rally at the U.S. Capitol. Shroyer quickly set up a legal defense fund on the crowdfunding site GoFundMe the next morning, but it was shut down by the crowdfunding platform shortly thereafter. Fundraising for Shroyer reached $23,000 before the GoFundMe page was removed, the podcaster said in an update about his charges. GoFundMe reportedly reached out to Shroyer after initially shutting down his fundraiser, he said in the update, and asked him to fix three aspects of his campaign before it could return. Shroyer said he did so, but was still unable to get his GoFundMe fundraiser reinstated. Shroyer currently has a defense fund set up on alternative crowdfunding site GiveSendGo.
