Justice Kavanaugh declines more than $600,000 raised in GoFundMe campaign

From Yahoo: Citing judicial ethics concerns, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh declined more than $600,000 that was donated to aid his family during the firestorm over sexual misconduct allegations that plagued his confirmation. The judge’s decision was announced on Tuesday in a message posted on the online fundraising page that gathered the funds.

John Hawkins, a veteran conservative blogger who runs a Kavanaugh-inspired “men’s website” called Brass Pills, organized the fundraising campaign. On Tuesday, Hawkins posted what he referred to as an “official statement” from Kavanaugh’s representatives distancing the justice from the effort:

“Justice Kavanaugh did not authorize the use of his name to raise funds in connection with the GoFundMe campaign. He was not able to do so for judicial ethics reasons. Judicial ethics rules caution judges against permitting the use of the prestige of judicial office for fund-raising purposes. 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. Although he appreciates the sentiment, Justice Kavanaugh requests that you discontinue the use of his name for any fund-raising purpose.”

Hawkins had raised $611,645 in small donations from approximately 13,250 donors, many of them anonymous, for “Brett Kavanaugh’s family to use for security or however they see fit.” The GoFundMe appeared online on Sept. 24, the day after the New Yorker published Deborah Ramirez’s allegations that Kavanaugh exposed himself and put his penis in her face at a college gathering. That story emerged a week after the Washington Post published Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that Kavanaugh had tried to force himself on her at a high school party.

When I first heard that Judge Kavanaugh was a Bush appointee, I was skeptical. Than when I did a little research on him and found that he had not enriched himself from his positions, and his record, I changed my position. When I saw how vehemently he was attacked by the enemies of America, White people, Christianity, and our culture/society, I knew he was the real deal and a good person. Best wishes and prayers to him and his family, especially for having the perseverance & courage to stand against the most vicious lie and slander campaign the Bolshevik/liberals have… Read more »

That is why I didn’t inform FOTM readers about that GoFundMe campaign, nor did I donate, because the campaign was neither initiated nor approved by Kavanaugh. I hope whoever organized it will return all the donations.

A better way to help Justice Kavanaugh is to continue to pray for him and his family.


I had read that the money was being sent to the organization he volunteers for, not confirmed. He is a stand up guy and the left cannot accept it.


What a noble thing to do from a meritorious lawman.
