Judge Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford has raised over $700,000 through multiple GoFundMe campaigns to cover “expenses” related to her testimony.
As of the early morning of September 28th, the “Help Christine Blasey Ford” campaign total stood at $473,622 of a $150,000 goal.
The “Cover Dr. Blasey’s security costs” campaign has raised $209,987 of a $175,000 goal.
A host of other similar campaigns backing Ford raised around another $40,000.
Ford did manage to work a plug in for her GoFundMe campaigns during her testimony:
Sorry. No data so far.

Hopefully, she can use the funds to buy much-needed coffee!

Correction: The “Women Support Christine Blasey Ford” campaign which raised $47,000 is for a “full page USA Today ad” in support of Ford. I’ve removed it from the “other similar campaigns” total above.
