Default Kavanaugh accuser still collects pledge cash

Poor woman lost so much via perjury and character assassination that she is still reeling from all that trauma and loss.
Christine Blasey Ford is no longer in the headlines, but she’s still collecting cash through GoFundMe accounts set up by friends and fans who wanted to show their support for her attempt to derail Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s path to the Supreme Court.

As of Monday, more than $850,000 had been pledged to the two biggest online solicitations, with one of them, personally blessed by Ms. Blasey Ford, still raking in more than $4,000 over the weekend.

The organizers of the funds have been strikingly secretive about their operations, declining to respond to messages about the cash they’ve raised. Ms. Blasey Ford’s lawyers have also said little, other than to say they worked pro bono and so the cash won’t have to be used to pay them.

It’s not even clear whether Ms. Blasey Ford has accessed the money.

The California college instructor made waves when she came forward, first anonymously in July and then quite publicly in September, to accuse Justice Kavanaugh of attempted rape at a high school party three decades ago.

While the accusations have not been corroborated by contemporaneous evidence, and the witnesses she said were at the party have refuted her accounts, her story became a major dividing line in American politics — and plenty of Democrats, women who’d suffered assaults, and people who disliked President Trump responded with cash.

Are people really that gullible to still keep donating money to this woman? Or are these promised payments by those who encouraged her to come forward?

something about this broad rubs me the wrong way. I'm glad she lost.

She went to my alma mater (UNC) for undergrad and there's an effort going on among faculty and students to give her some type of award.

There are U.S. citizens in this country that are good people..working their tails off and barely have anything...a couple thousand would help them a lot...but no they donate thousands upon thousands to someone who already has money. Thanks left.
