Letter: Real harm to survivors


Wednesday, October 10, 2018

I am not political and not siding with either Christine Blasey Ford or Brett Kavanaugh. As a victim, I am appalled that this fiasco is earning them money. I cannot believe they both have a GoFundMe page with hundreds of thousands of dollars in them. Do you know how hard it will be for victims to come forward now and not have authorities think they are just looking for money? This fiasco has done so much more damage to other people. It is bringing up all the things that we worked so hard to come to terms with. Not every survivor is strong enough to keep this from affecting them. Please be understanding and comforting to them. Throughout a survivor’s life there will be times when an issue will trigger them. It is horrifying to know that it was the government that triggered us this time and to such an extent.
