Someone Bought BrettKavanaugh.com & Wait Until You See What's On There

Did you believe Ford of Kavanaugh? The usage of a lie detector and someone's lack of self-control aside, we are sure you have an opinion.

But if you want to know more about our newest Supreme Court Justice, do not go to  BrettKavanaugh.com looking for information.

CNN.com has stated that someone bought the domain and has turned it into a site dedicated to help survivors of sexual assault.
 
Is this a similar play on an internet address like whitehouse.com and whitehouse.gov?
 
Instead of a Kavanaugh bio or pearls of judicial wisdom, visitors to the site encounter a black-and-white photo of the Supreme Court building along with a simple message: "We Believe Survivors." Below are links to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, End Rape On Campus and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network -- all resources for survivors who are seeking assistance.  - cnn.com
 
So who decided to spend their money on this URL purchase?  Fix the Court, a nonpartisan judicial reform organization stepped up to the plate as their main goal is to fight for honesty and transparency on the US Supreme Court.
 
Pretty fast work, Fix the Court!  Well, actually it was fast work about three years ago when Kavanaugh's name was being tossed around as a possible nominee
    "In 2015, as the presidential races were going on, I decided to buy domains of possible candidates for the Supreme Court," Fix the Court Executive Director Gabe Roth told CNN. Fix the Court owns about two dozen domain names, including MerrickGarland.net and JudgeGorsuch.com.
    ...
    During Kavanaugh's ceremonial swearing-in at the White House on Monday, President Donald Trump apologized for "the terrible pain and suffering" he and his family were "forced to endure" during his confirmation process.
     
    Frustrated by Trump's comments, Roth decided to launch the site Tuesday as a way to put "a national focus on the issue of sexual assault." - cnn.com
     
    Roth hopes his website can help survivors while starting a conversation about making the Supreme Court confirmation process more transparent.
     
    What do you think of the website?  Good way to make people aware of such a travesty or is it liberals and democrats wasting money and not letting a loss go?

      I do believe Dr. Ford, and I do believe Kavanaugh’s behavior was atrocious, though I’m sure I would not be calm, cool, and collected if I were in his shoes.  However, it was his word against hers, there was not enough evidence to support either, though I think there was enough reason not to confirm Kavanaugh based on his temperament. However, he was confirmed. That being said, nonsense such as buying Brett Kavanaugh’s name as a domain and fighting every Trump initiative just because it is from Trump is not working. A month ago it looked as if Democrats would take back Congress and possibly the Senate. Today that is looking less likely, and it is largely due to the way the Democrats acted during the hearings. They did wait too long to bring forward the charges, they believed Ronan Farrow’s shoddy reporting of a second victim in this instance (usually he is thorough) and jumped on a ludicrous false accusation. People do not like Trump but they are not buying what the opposition says either.

      That's a good response, even though I disagree with you on Ford.  (Most of the anti-Kavs seem to just screech their heads off).

      I believe surviviors of false accusations. The way gay activists sided with the wrong ones (the false accuser, the DA, etc) during the Duke lacrosse debacle, you'd have thought they'd learned their lessons about the subject.
