The Texas Realtor who flew on a private jet to take part in the US Capitol riot shamelessly begged for donations on PayPal for her legal fees and business losses — getting her booted from the service.
Jenna Ryan, who said this week that she has “no guilt in my heart” and felt like a martyr after taking part in the DC assault, asked her Twitter followers on Thursday for financial help.
“I am accepting donations to pay legal fees and losses due to my arrest and charges by the FBI for protesting at the US Capitol. Thank you for your support. Any amount helps,” the disgraced real estate agent posted along with a link to PayPal.
“I was set up on fundly but they shut me down saying I’m a racist. So now I’m on PayPal where I’ve been for many years. It’s safer,” she continued.
PayPal has removed Jenna Ryan’s account after she tried to raise money for legal fees and business losses.
“I have to go to trial in Washington DC for this misdemeanor. I believe I was wrongfully arrested and charged and we have to fight for my freedom and decl [sic] my name,” Ryan wrote.
“There is a concerted effort to destroy patriotic, Christian, patriots and Trump supporters. It is happening, and we need to come together. At this point I need support so that I can clear my name,” she said, whining that her computers, phone and MAGA hat were confiscated.
“I am being surrounded by hateful people who are calling me a racist and asking for me to go to prison for 10 or 20 years and saying all sorts of horrible mean things about me. They don’t even know me. They want my business destroyed. I need help patriots,” Ryan added.
She said she raised $1,000 — but by Thursday evening, PayPal had closed her account.
“PayPal has a policy to allow fundraising for legal defense purposes,” company rep Kim Eichorn told AdChoiceTV News in an email.
“PayPal thoroughly reviews accounts, and if we learn that funds are used for anything other than legal defense, the account will be subject to immediate closure. We can confirm that the account in question has been closed,” she added.
Ryan later acknowledged her account had been closed.
“Shucky darn I can’t do business with PayPal anymore. What am I gonna do with myself? I think I will survive. Seems like some people want to cancel me because I’m trying to get donations from PayPal. Big Woop,” she tweeted.
Ryan, who asked then-President Donald Trump for a pardon, was charged with “disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds” and “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.”
