Christine Blasey Ford, with the support of the Democratic Party, presented her story against Judge Brett Kavanaugh yesterday at a hearing in front of the Senate Judicial Committee. She could be receiving a check, or multiple checks, for a total amount of over $700,000 (so far) because of multiple GoFundMe campaigns raising money to help pay for her costs.
I don’t know if GoFundMe will send her one check for each campaign, or one large check, or if GoFundMe sends the money to the people running the campaigns. I’m not 100% certain how their system works, but if the accounts are cashed out, then Blasey Ford might literally be getting almost a million dollars after all of this is said and done. Of course, GoFundMe would have to decide on what happens with the campaigns. Either way, that’s a ton of money that Ford could have in her hands after her story and testimony accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Her story has created thunderous waves on social media and disrupted the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, even though she presents little to no evidence and no corroboration from her own friends.
No one seems to be supporting her story except for the Democratic Party, but Ford’s own friends refused to back her up.
When Ford was in front of U.S. senators during the hearing, someone had asked how she would pay for the polygraph test, which could cost anywhere from hundreds to a thousand dollars. “During a break after Blasey Ford’s testimony, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of Kavanaugh’s most outspoken advocates, told reporters: “I don’t know who paid for her polygraph but somebody did.”
How was Ford going to cover other costs such as travel to appear at the hearing? What about lawyers? Nevermind that, her lawyers are working pro-bono.
Ford mentioned that she wasn’t sure if she paid for the polygraph, a check someone would not forget about cutting, but she then found out that her attorneys (referred to her by Democrats) had paid for the test.
Ford then mentioned that there were a few GoFundMe campaigns going on in support of her. A few? Upon further research, it appears that GoFundMe has 13 current campaigns raising money to support her.
CNBC reported “I’m aware that there’s been several GoFundMe sites,” Blasey Ford told Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona prosecutor who was hired to ask questions on behalf of Republican senators. “I haven’t had a chance to figure out how to manage those because I’ve never had one.”
GoFundMe, a crowdfunding website that allows anyone to start a fundraising effort, is hosting 13 campaigns related to Blasey Ford, according to a search on the site using her name. Most of them haven’t gotten much response, though they picked up after the topic was raised.
However, the top two campaigns have reeled in more than half a million dollars for Blasey Ford, a professor of psychology and statistics at Palo Alto University in California.”
I located two of the highest yielding GoFunMe accounts. One has $473,812 of $150,000 goal raised. Another has $209,987 of $175,000 goal raised.
The first of the GoFundMe accounts listed appears to be using Ford as a means of pushing their own material. They have several other campaigns listed in the description of their campaign for Dr. Ford. This is called being an opportunist. They’re raising money for Ford, but they’re using it to advertise their own things.
The second GoFundMe listed is basing their campaign on death threats that Ford has allegedly received. What’s odd about this is that it’s usually unhinged Democrats who send death threats or participate in violence. For example, Antifa, Steve Scalise being shot, and any of the other violence and protests conducted by liberals behaving badly. This GoFundMe is to provide funds for security, although it doesn’t seem like anyone is actually going after her.
It should be noted that many people percieve that the Democrats have used Ford as their pawn in a chess game to delay the confirmation of Kavanaugh until after the midterm elections and even possibly until after the 2020 election where they can hope to get a seat back.
The smear campaign and political agenda has been called out by numerous senators such as Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz.
The Democratic Party might not cut Ford a check, but it looks like she’ll be taking home a ton of donations if GoFundMe allows the campaigns to be cashed out.
That’s not a bad paycheck for agreeing to help destroy a man’s life with a smear campaign that appears to be designed by Democrats.
