In the wake of the highly dramatic and emotional testimony of both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee this past week, it has come to public attention that GoFundMe pages have been set up for both individuals.
Ford and Kavanaugh have seen hundreds of thousands of dollars pour into accounts which are supposedly to support their administrative and court expenses.
Are we serious?
Ford is a professor at Palo Alto University. Kavanaugh is a judge for the second highest court in the land. Each is being supported by political parties with limitless funding. Are Americans such suckers as to provide them with more money? It just adds to this national embarrassment.
Feeling charitable? Take the money and help those in Indonesia who just experienced a horrendous earthquake and tsunami. As of today, over 800 have been confirmed dead and that count is expected to rise exponentially. There is plenty of suffering among the destruction.
Of course, there are plenty of other charities which are supporting Indonesia as well. Just make sure your choose a properly vetted organization. And if the Indonesia cause doesn’t “do it for you”, there’s still plenty of help needed in the Carolina and Virginia areas from Hurricane Florence.
If you got the moolah, let’s be smart with it!
