College professor Christine Blasey Ford testified Thursday before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982. During her testimony, Ford mentioned that a number of GoFundMe sites have raised funds on her behalf.

What did she say?

“I’m aware that there’s been several GoFundMe sites,” Blasey Ford told Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona prosecutor who was hired by the GOP majority to ask questions at the hearing. “I haven’t had a chance to figure out how to manage those because I’ve never had one.”

She made the statement after Mitchell asked her how she would pay for her polygraph test and other costs associated with her testimony against Kavanaugh.

GoFundMe has more than a dozen fundraisers on the site that mention Blasey Ford by name. The crowdfunding website allows anyone to launch a fundraiser. The top two campaigns alone have brought in a total of nearly $700,000.
