Christine Blasey Ford and her family have had to move out of their house.
Christine Blasey Ford's letter says that in addition to death threats and moving out of her home, her email was hacked and people have been impersonating her online. via @cnn pic.twitter.com/voPz5DvQn9

The New York Times has a very short article saying that she may not come to the hearing on Monday. It was much longer before, and included this paragraph. It may grow again, or they may do a separate article on the attacks on Blasey. According to the previous version of the article, she prefers using her maiden name professionally. There were lots of problems with the earlier version that I spotted, starting with introducing her as “the woman,” but I lack the patience to go into them now.

Mark Judge, who Blasey has said was in the room when Kavanaugh attacked her and who has written two books about being a teenage alcoholic, has said he will not testify to Congress.
I hope nobody gets trampled or injured in the rush to be first to explain to Dr. Ford that everyone gets threatened on the internet and she just shouldn't take it so seriously.

This was, of course, entirely predictable. Christine Blasey Ford is a brave woman. I hope the police can bring her harassers to justice.
