Editor's note: Bloomberg Government reporter Madi Alexander started this. She does not work at the Capital Gazette. GoFundMe has turned off the ability for anyone to withdraw money from this fundraiser without their approval. Per GoFundMe: "Once things settle a bit, we will work together to formulate a clear plan for withdrawals and how the money will be handled. We can discuss those specific details in the coming days as we want to allow the Capital Gazette team a bit of time to settle, grieve, and remember the lives of their colleagues."
