Almost $1 million was pledged in support of Christine Blasey Ford to help her during her hearings to address alleged sexual misconduct by now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
And weeks later, those accounts are still collecting donations, with yet another $4,000 being added to one account over the weekend.
Where Is the Money Going?
With a war chest of more than $850,000, people want to know what she is doing with the money.
Kavanaugh’s supporters created a similar donation account for him.
However, the account’s organizer has offered to refund the money or for those that wanted to leave it, donate it to one of Kavanaugh’s favorite charities.
No such announcement has been made by the Ford camp.
In fact, her attorneys have been mum about it ever since the hearings ended.
What We Do Know
The fact people were donating the cash was a bit surprising, since Ford had no legal bills.
Her attorneys made it quite clear during the hearings they were doing the work pro bono, or free of charge.
Ford has also stated she would not be pursuing her charges any further in the courts.
Point being, she would have no further legal costs, the apparent reason all of those funds were being donated.
So exactly what is she doing with the money?
Not long after the hearing, she claimed she would be using the money for personal security.
Ford has released a statement saying, “The costs for security, housing, transportation, and other related expenses are much higher than we anticipated and they do not show signs of letting up.”
“Funds received via this account will be used to help us pay for these mounting expenses,” she added.
But here’s the thing…
Conservatives have already turned her into yesterday’s news.
We wanted to prove she was lying or had misidentified Kavanaugh as her attacker, not hurt her.
Now that her story has been found uncorroborated and Kavanaugh has been confirmed, nobody is really worried about her anymore.
