Kavanaugh Turned Down More Than $600K In GoFundMe Donations

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has reportedly turned down more than $600,000 in donationsraised for him through crowdfunding efforts, citing “judicial ethics.”

“Justice Kavanaugh will not accept any proceeds from the campaign, nor will he direct that any proceeds from the campaign be provided to any third party,” the most recently appointed SCOTUS justice said in a statement through his office. “Although he appreciates the sentiment, Justice Kavanaugh requests that you discontinue the use of his name for any fund-raising purpose.”

John Hawkins, a conservative blogger, reportedly raised about $611,000 from more than 13,000 individual donors for Kavanaugh throughout his embattled nomination process, during which he was accused by several women of sexual misconduct stemming from his days as a high school student at Georgetown Prep. Hawkins said he launched the GoFundMe campaign to help Kavanaugh with any attorneys fees or security he might need.

Meanwhile, Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who kicked off the slew of allegations with a letter to Democratic senators accusing Kavanaugh of trying to rape her at a high school part some 35 years ago, is reportedly set to reap more than $1 million from similar crowdfunding efforts in her name. In the weeks that have followed her highly publicized testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford has continued to ask the public for more donations to assist her with “security, housing, transportation and other related expenses.” She’s also reportedly entertaining multiple offers for a book deal.

In their report, Yahoo noted that as a Supreme Court justice, Kavanaugh isn’t actually bound to the same Code of Ethics that govern what money can be accepted by other federal judges. Even still, it looks like he’s choosing to decline the money anyway over those same ethical concerns.
