Someone bought BrettKavanaugh.com, which links to sexual assault survivor resources

Someone bought <a href=BrettKavanaugh.com, which links to sexual assault survivor resources” align=”left” title=”Someone bought BrettKavanaugh.com, which links to sexual assault survivor resources” border=”0″ >Brett Kavanaugh didn't buy a domain with his name in it. So now, if you go to BrettKavanaugh.com, .org or .net, you won't find an official site for the contentious Supreme Court Justice, sworn in on Monday after an FBI investigation into multiple accusations of sexual assault.  Instead, you'll find a website that links to resources for sexual assault survivors.  SEE ALSO: Trump declares Kavanaugh 'proven innocent', internet calls him out The page is emblazoned with a simple, but strong message that was echoed throughout Kavanaugh's confirmation saga: "We believe survivors." The domains were purchased by an organization called Fix The Court, which pushes for accountability and transparency in the Supreme Court.  t.co/hDgi8V1Vdk links to various resources for sexual assault survivors: “We believe survivors”. pic.twitter.com/LS3PTI9S7R — Gabe #DreamActNow Ortíz (@TUSK81) October 9, 2018 Executive director Gabe Roth said in a statement that he bought the URLs three years ago, thinking that it "might be useful in any forthcoming Supreme Court confirmation battles."  On Tuesday, he redirected those three domains to a landing page with resources for victims of sexual assault, including the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and End Rape on Campus (EROC), which provides support for campus assault survivors. It's fitting, as one of Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, said he sexually assaulted her when they were in high school in the 1980s, and another, Deborah Ramirez, accused him of sexual misconduct when he was a Yale student. "I believe Dr. Ford. I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness," Roth wrote. "Watching last night’s White House event and listening to the President again cast doubt on veracity of Dr. Ford’s claims, while not hearing a word of contrition from the newest justice, was difficult for many Americans who have experienced sexual misconduct firsthand." It's not the only Kavanaugh-related URL that's been snapped up. Comedian Dave Weasel bought honbrettkavanaugh.com, and it now links to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, also linked by Fix The Court's site. I scooped the domain t.co/HdZOdjiGO8 and redirected it to RAINN – a leading anti-sexual violence organization. — Dave Weasel (@DaveWeasel) October 7, 2018 WATCH: These noise-cancelling headphones are the real deal – Power Up
