The circus surrounding Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused him of sexual assault over 30 years ago, ended weeks ago.
However, a GoFundMe account to raise money for Ford is still active and people are still donating money.
I want to know why. The account has raised $627,301 and received its last donation nine hours ago.
The people who set up the account wrote that they will not withdraw any of these funds as Ford’s “family has been named the sole beneficiary and her husband will take the funds directly from GoFundMe.”
The GoFundMe account for Kavanaugh is no longer accepting donations.
A message from Ford posted on October 3 stated that the money from the GoFundMe account will help her with “security, housing, transportation and other related expenses.”
Does she still need that money? Fuzzy wrote on Saturday that Ford doesn’t want Kavanaugh impeached or an investigation into her claims against him. Instead, Ford wants to move on.
Ford’s attorney Debra Katz tells CNN’s Dana Bash in an interview that Ford only wanted to tell her story to Senate Judiciary Committee members. She doesn’t want the process to drag on into the next Congress should Democrats end up winning control on Capitol Hill.
“Professor Ford has not asked for anything of the sort. What she did was to come forward and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and agree to cooperate with any investigation by the FBI and that’s what she sought to do here,” Katz said.
A GoFundMe account from September 18 raised security funds for Ford, but has closed and no longer accepts donations.
I sent a message to the organizers and asked why the page remains active and taking donations. I hope to hear from them soon and will update if I do.DONATE
