PayPal Unfreezes Conservative Group's Account after DeSantis Vows to Crack Down on Financial Discrimination

Matt Lamb : Aug 4, 2022  LifeSiteNews.com

"Last week, Tina Descovich, Co-Founder of @Moms4Liberty, shared that PayPal locked their account and withheld funds with no warning or justification. Days after our event, their funds were released. Florida has put WOKE banking on notice." -Governor Ron DeSantis

(Tallahassee, FL) — [LifeSiteNews.com] PayPal reversed its hold on donations and funds for conservative group "Moms for Liberty" soon after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he would crack down on financial institutions discriminating against people based on political beliefs. (Image: Pixabay)

Gov. DeSantis highlighted the story of parental rights organizations Moms for Liberty, which found out on July 15, while DeSantis spoke at its event, that PayPal had blocked the group's ability to process monthly donors. It also placed a hold on $4,500 in the organization's account.

"PayPal told [founder Tina Descovich] that [Moms for Liberty] could not operate on the platform until the IRS approved the organization's paperwork," Florida's Voice reported. "However, Descovich said that PayPal had already accepted the paperwork they filed with the IRS, which is backlogged, in January of 2021."

Those problems went away a few days after Descovich spoke at a July 27 event with Gov. DeSantis to discuss efforts to stop discrimination against people by financial institutions as well as to stop the use of woke "Environmental, Social, and Governance" scores in investment decisions.

Descovich said at the July 27 event that her organization had processed $300,000 worth of transactions in 2021 without any problems. She said all of her tax documents had been properly filed, but that a federal backlog at the IRS has slowed down the processing of its documents.

"We were paralyzed for weeks," Descovich said, speaking of the freeze on her account. That included purchases for different materials bought from the group by local chapters. Moms for Liberty has not had problems with Florida institutions and began transitioning away from using it.

She blamed a July 15 event that received media attention for causing PayPal to take action against the group.
