The Washington Post is on a roll in its crusade to take down Donald Trump's second Supreme Court nominee in less than two years. Not only have they uncovered the
damning endearing fact that Brett Kavanaugh ran up credit card debt to buy baseball tickets for his buddies and is a man of modest means rather than some out-of-touch elitist, the revered paper has dug up some really dirty, or at least sandy, details from his high school days.
Here's the game-changing revelation from The Washington Post's report on Kavanaugh's "elite world":
In Kavanaugh’s Georgetown Prep yearbook, he listed himself as the treasurer of the “Keg City Club — 100 Kegs or Bust” and included references to the “Beach Week Ralph Club” and “Rehoboth Police Fan Club.”
As you let the gravity of those debauched details from his past sink in, consider this other big league bombshell from the Post: Kavanaugh "incurred tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt buying baseball tickets over the past decade and at times reported liabilities that could have exceeded the value of his cash accounts and investment assets."
Kavanaugh racked up the debt, explained White House spokesman Raj Shah, "buying Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and a 'handful' of friends. Shah said some of the debts were also for home improvements."
That's right. He bought baseball tickets for his buddies that, if his buddies didn't pay him back, might've been a financial problem for him. He also ran up a credit card bill for . . . home improvements. More from WaPo's homerun in investigative journalism:
In 2016, Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt accrued over three credit cards and a loan. Each credit card held between $15,000 and $50,000 in debt, and a Thrift Savings Plan loan was between $15,000 and $50,000.
The credit card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings, which do not require details on the nature or source of such payments. Shah told The Post that Kavanaugh’s friends reimbursed him for their share of the baseball tickets and that the judge has since stopped purchasing the season tickets.
In other words, Kavanaugh is a completely relatable middle class American who loves America's pastime and his friends, and hilariously trolled his high school yearbook. Another swing and a miss.
