An account raising money for the family of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has raised nearly $500,000 in just a few days.
The fundraiser was launched in response to the horrendous attacks on Kavanaugh and his family.
According to reports:
“The page to help Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s family was created by a North Carolina man named John Hawkins, who is the founder of Right Wing News. A GoFundMe spokeswoman has said the platform is working with the creator of the page to make sure the funds get to the intended place.
You can access the page here.
There are also two GoFundMe pages to help Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, including paying for her security costs; neither page is accepting donations anymore, but you can learn about them later in this article. Kavanaugh’s family, Kavanaugh himself, and Blasey Ford have all received death threats since Blasey Ford, a California professor, accused Kavanaugh of groping her without consent when they were both in high school. He denies the accusations.
Kavanaugh did not create the page, and it’s not clear whether he or his family would or could accept the money due to judicial ethics rules; the site says that, if he can’t, the organizer is hoping his family will donate the money to a charity of their choice.”
