GoFundMe Donations For Kavanaugh Ford Accuser Skyrocket After Mention In Testimony

Published

on

GoFundMe donations for Christine Blasey Ford have skyrocketed since the she mentioned the campaigns during Thursday’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Just two of the 17 accounts on the crowdfunding site relating to Ford have brought in nearly $700,000.

Answering questions concerning the funding for her legal team and travel since the allegations became public, Ford mentioned that she’d be collecting money donated to her from GoFundMe accounts. “I’m aware that there’s been several GoFundMesites,” she said. “I haven’t had a chance to figure out how to manage those because I’ve never had one.”

One such account dedicated to Ford “jumped from about $179,000 to $305,000 and counting merely 30 minutes later, according to the publicly displayed funds counter,” reported MarketWatch on Thursday.

Those numbers have since spiked further. One account has collected over $475,000 for Ford’s legal fees and another has brought in over $200,000 for the accuser’s “security costs.”

During the testimony, Ford’s lawyers Michael Bromwich and Debra Katz said they were working pro bono and disclosed that they had paid for their client’s polygraph test after Ford said she did not know who paid for it.

Ford claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school when she was 15 and he was 17, some thirty-plus years ago. Her uncorroborated and refuted allegations do not include when or where exactly the alleged incident took place. Sen. Dianne Feinstein was first notified of the allegations in July via a letter sent by Ford, though the Democratic senator curiously sat on the allegations for weeks.

Kavanaugh has flatly denied the allegations repeatedly. The three other potential witnesses named by Ford have denied any knowledge of the alleged assault.

    Ford is lying

    Perhaps the FBI should find her bank accounts.

      I wish the FBI would check the connection between Feinstein’s husband Richard Blum being a Regent at Palo Alto and Ford being a professor there.
      Wasn’t Feinstein fined $170,000 for giving Blum a government contract? with $80 MILLION Feinstein could easily afford to give Ford millions .

    This woman was not believable. She was smiling, laughing and waving at people like she was a celebrity. No corroboration from other people especially the only person/woman (Keyser) she mentioned who would corroborate her words…she said she does not know any party where Judge Kavanaugh was present and she does not even know Judge Kavanaugh. No hard evidence. Demrats willfully ignored Judge Kavanaugh. They just believed the woman. This woman was used or she is a part of the charade. Very sad for the country and especially for Judge Kavanaugh and his family. And Feinstein was lying about leaking the letter….she did it.

    Follow the money. This Is what all this is about. Appearances on television, a book deal, a progressive star for helping to put the nomination on hold. She is despicable and so are the other liars.

    I would check out the list I’d Conor’s and the amounts. That would’ve avery easy way to pay off a witness or an accuser. Also, isn’t this considered income, shouldn’t she have to pay taxes on the money? After all, she isn’t a registered charity.
