While other criminal types have been successful in crowdfunding their defense, the man alleged to have run over and killed Heather Heyer is being turned away.
GoFundMe, the prime charity crowdfunding portal, says that it has turned away a number of fundraising campaigns for the arrested man based on its terms of service that it does not allow the promotion of hate speech and violence.
That person appeared at an arraignment yesterday and said that he could not afford an attorney. The public defender’s office declined to take the case because one of its people attended the rally as an anti-racist protester. So, the court had to appoint private counsel.
However, new crowdfunding portals have recently sprung up to support the “alt-right” movement.
