If anyone tries to tell you that Christine Ford had nothing to gain by submitting questionable testimony to the Senate without a shred of evidence, you can refer them to this article. She gained a lot. First of all, she is a liberal activist and her testimony is bound to make her a hero among activists that can lead to financial gain.
Secondly, she works for a Pharma company, whose only product is the ingredient for the Ru-486 abortion pill. If Roe v Wade is overturned, she would be out of a job. And last but not least, liberals started GoFundMe pages for Ford that as of last Friday had racked up over $700,000 dollars in cold hard tax free cash.
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.
“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.
Lisa Bloom, daughter of Gloria Allred, negotiated big bucks for women who would make allegations against Donald Trump of up to $750,000. One woman got her mortgage paid off. All of these women faded into the sunset after the election.
A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trumpduring the final months of the 2016 presidential race, according to documents and interviews.
California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.
Democrats have now added buying false allegations to their playbook.
