Christine Ford Set to Make Seven Figures After Kavanaugh Hearing

And there it is.

Christine Blasey Ford, the original Brett Kavanaugh accuser, is set to make $1 million.

RealClear Investigations has the details:

During the crucible of Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearings, Democrats repeatedly asserted that Christine Blasey Ford had “nothing to gain” by coming forward with her explosive accusation of attempted rape against the Supreme Court nominee.

“You had absolutely nothing to gain by bringing these facts to the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Sen. Dick Durbin said during her testimony last month. This sentiment was echoed by other Democrats, who presented it as evidence that Ford was telling the truth. “I want to thank you,” added California Sen. Kamala Harris, “because you clearly have nothing to gain for what you have done.”

In fact, Ford stands to gain some $1 million and counting from national crowdfunding campaigns launched by friends and other supporters, while she is said to be fielding book offers.

Two GoFundMe’s have amassed over $842,000.

A third is at $120,000.

The potential seven-figure windfall, which she says she intends to cash in on – while still asking donors for more money – has some questioning her motivation for accusing the conservative judge after 35 years of silence, and whether it goes beyond personal or even political justice. Others worry the largesse sets a dangerous precedent: Crowdfunding, which unlike political donations is unregulated, could be routinely used in the future as a bounty for providing political dirt on opponents.

Ford noted: “The costs for security, housing, transportation and other related expenses are much higher than we anticipated and they do not show signs of letting up.”

“Funds received via this account will be used to help us pay for these mounting expenses.”

A spokeswoman for GoFundMe said Ford can withdraw as much cash as she wants…whenever she wants…for any reason.

Over 21,000 people have donated to Ford’s GoFundMe.

Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh dropped $10,000.

Ford and her husband currently live in a $3.3 million home in Palo Alto, California.

Wyoming Witness Describes Restaurant Scene Caused by Gabby Petito’s Fiancé

Oh boy…

Published

on

The death of Gabby Petito has been a lengthy, slow-moving tragedy for much of the nation, and there is still some road left to be traveled.

Petito, who was confirmed dead on Tuesday after authorities suggested that they discovered her body over the weekend, went missing while on a cross-country road-trip with fiancé Brian Laundrie.

Just days before her death was confirmed, Laundrie went missing, likely to the Carlton Reserve in central Florida, where authorities are searching still.  The missing man had previously refused to cooperate with law enforcement in Gabby’s disappearance, leading to his being named a person of interest in her disappearance and death.

Those following the case are already aware of an incident in which the two were captured on police body cameras after a domestic dispute – a situation that led many to speculate as to the state of their relationship at the time of her death.

Now, a new incident has come to light, and not far from where Gabby’s body was found.

“I have chills right now,” Nina Celie Angelo told Fox News Digital Wednesday. “It’s crazy because it wasn’t just like we passed them on the street — it was a full blown incident.”

Angelo said she and her boyfriend, Matthew England, were in town for a wedding in late August. They were out to lunch at Merry Piglets, a Tex-Mex restaurant, between 1 and 2 p.m. on Aug. 27, when they said an agitated Laundrie began arguing with a waitress. Four and a half hours later, a travel-blogging couple passed Petito’s van at a campsite north of town.

Angelo, a photographer, said she couldn’t overhear the conversation but that she believed Laundrie was arguing with staff over the bill or about money. She described his body language as “aggressive” and said he left and returned about four times.

At one point, Petito came inside and apologized for Laundrie’s behavior, Angelo said.

Laundrie’s family has garnered quite a bit of criticism from their characterization of Brian as “missing”, as those following the case have suggested that he’s actually on the run.

Petito’s cause of death has not yet been made public.

Swamp Search Intensifies as Missing Influencer Confirmed Dead

Will Brian Laundrie be found in the muck at the bottom of the Carlton Reserve?

Published

on

The parents of Gabriel Petito are in mourning, officially now, as authorities have confirmed that their daughter is now deceased.

Petito’s body was found over the weekend in Bridger-Teton National Forest after an improbable tip by a fellow YouTube vlogger led police to her body, which appeared to have been placed about 900 feet away from where her van was parked.

This is, of course, the same van that her fiancé Brian Laundrie returned to Florida in on September 1st, sparking a national firestorm over his unwillingness to cooperative with authorities investigating her disappearance.

Now, with Petito’s fate confirmed, (and with the coroner calling it a “homicide”), Laundrie remains missing, possibly within the vast and wild Carlton Reserve in Florida.

Search crews headed back to the Carlton Reserve in Venice to look for the 23-year-old on Wednesday morning. Around noon, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office SURF (Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force) team pulled up to the Carlton Reserve as the search continued.

“To confirm, yes, members of our Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force have responded to Carlton Reserve. This in addition to our Emergency Response Team, Air-1 & patrol,” the sheriff’s office tweeted. “SURF Team members are divers called upon to search bodies of water for evidence. These highly-trained deputies work in the most difficult and challenging environments imaginable. They are on call 24/7/365.”

Laundrie’s disappearance has infuriated those who’ve been following the case, especially as his parents refrained from reporting him missing from Tuesday to Friday of last week, giving what some online commenters considered a “head start” to escape.
