Kavanaugh/Ford Compete For Crowdfunding

The crowdfunding race is on between Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, and Kavanaugh.

Their supporters now have competing GoFundme pages, and to date, the Ford page is leading with $528,475 raised vs. the Kavanaugh page with $501,827.

Presumably, the funds will be used to pay their respective counsel and for the cost of security services due to the threats that have been made on their respective lives while living in the hot spotlight of their Senate testimony.

While conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh claims that the Ford page is “essentially money-laundering operation for the Democrats,” he didn’t comment on the operation being run for Mr. Kavanaugh’s family.
