Regardless of whether or not she’s telling the truth, Dr. Ford doesn’t deserve to have her life or her loved ones’ lives threatened. But a GoFundMe campaign isn’t great optics for her, either.

It’s really not that unbelievable, given the other high-profile GoFundMe campaigns that have popped up recently.
Now, it’s important to emphasize that, at least according to the GoFundMe description, Ford is not behind this campaign. Which raises other issues:
She didn’t set it up. Looks like the person who did doesn’t even know her. Could be a scam.

It could be. In any case, donors eager to send their money Ford’s way might want to hold off.

@gofundme has become the domain of grifters and miscreants. Sad because the premise behind its creation was admirable.
