Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has been on the receiving end of harassment ever since she publicly came forward with her sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, continues to receive threats to this day.

According to a Thursday NPR report, her lawyers said that the threats have “continued,” despite the fact that Kavanaugh has “ascended to the Supreme Court.”

Blasey Ford said last month that the severity of the harassment has forced her to move four times and retain private security.
