A crowdfunding campaign to cover security costs for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford raised $647,610 in two months, which far surpassed the initial goal of $150,000. The woman who stood up to Trump Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh says she will donate all the extra money to organizations that support survivors of trauma. But do go on about how she’s a gold-digging liar who fabricated the whole Kavanaugh thing for a payoff. In a statement posted on the fundraising site last week, Christine Blasey Ford says she's shutting down the GoFundMe that was launched in her name, and will donate the remaining money to trauma survivors. “With immense gratitude, I am closing this account to further contributions,” Ford wrote on the “Help Christine Blasey Ford” site that appeared last September. “All funds unused after completion of security expenditures will be donated to organizations that support trauma survivors. I am currently researching organizations where the funds can best be used. We will use this space to let you know when that process is complete.” I am grateful to have had the opportunity to fulfill my civic duty,” she wrote. “Having done so, I am in awe of the many women and men who have written me to share similar life experiences, and now have bravely shared their experience with friends and family, many for the first time. I send you my heartfelt love and support. I wish I could thank each and every one of you individually. Thank you.” She said that the funds raised onlin “allowed us to take reasonable steps to protect ourselves against frightening threats,” including paying for security services for herself and her family, and a home security system.
