Two GoFundMe accounts made on behalf of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her family have raised over $700,000 in donations for the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. “Cover Dr. Blasey’s security costs,” has surpassed its $175,000 goal and raised over $200,000 in nine days. The GoFundMe campaign was created by Heidi Feldman on behalf of Ford’s family.

“Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford … and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security,” the page description reads. “Let’s create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks.” The page specifies that extra funds raised “will go to women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.”
