Dr. Christine Blasey Ford thanks supporters and closes GoFundMe account
The fundraiser raised nearly $650,000 -$647,610 of $150,000 goal- for the college professor. In a post last Wednesday, Ford thanked supporters for their donations.
Fundraising organizers said the funds were to help cover the costs of travel, security and other financial hardships Ford encountered when she accused justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during their high school years. Kavanaugh was President Trump's pick to replace retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Despite the allegations against him, Kavanaugh went on to be confirmed to the nation's highest court.
