The GoFundMe page for the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school nearly 35 years ago has raised over $132,552 in less than 48 hours.

“Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford […] and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security,” the GoFundMe page says, which claims to have been started by a professor at Georgetown University who does not know Ford.

“Let’s create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks,” it adds.

In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa on Tuesday, Ford’s attorneys said she has “been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats,” which has caused her family to relocate from their home.

The GoFundMe page claims the money will go to security to keep Ford and her family safe, and any additional funds the page receives will go toward “women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.”

Ford has yet to decide if she will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday. (RELATED: Another Named Witness At Alleged Kavanaugh Party Denies Being Present)

Her attorneys said she will testify only after an FBI investigation is conducted, which President Donald Trump has declined.
