On October 29, the city council of Palo Alto, CA, plans to honor Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault more than 30 years ago, for testifying in front of the Senate about the ordeal.

However, the city doesn’t think Ford will show up since “nobody seems to know where (Ford) is.”

From The Palo Alsto Daily Post:

“I have no idea how to reach her whatsoever,” [Palo Alto Mayor Liz] Kniss said. “If anybody hears anything about her or anything like that, actually, we’d like to know.”

Kniss said she could contact Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, but doubted Katz would want to pass along the message, considering the violent threats Ford has received since coming forward.

“Almost everything begins to really infringe, and I don’t even know if at this point she wants to be reminded of this whole thing,” Kniss said. “In that same situation, probably anyone might just say, ‘That’s enough.’”

Ford’s employer Palo Alto University could send someone to accept the honor if she won’t show up.

Remember, the GoFundMe account to help Ford remains open and has raised $631,335 in over a month. 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.”

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.”

People magazine published an article on October 3 about how Ford and her family cannot go home. Family friend Jim Gensheimer told the magazine the family left their home and friends took “in her teenage sons so they could stay in school.”

He also said that Ford and her husband “are re-evaluating their futures” and wonder “is it safe to live” in their home. He believes “everything is in question now.”
