Brett Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh Under Attack Again Over Drinking Habits

In the words of just about every political pundit ever this afternoon:  The floodgates have opened.

Brett Kavanaugh, the second Supreme Court nominee of President Donald Trump in his first term, has been accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in an incident that only she seems to recall.  Now, after the democrats have pounced on this opportunity to stall Kavanaugh’s nomination, there are stories seemingly seeping out of the woodwork that paint Brett Kavanaugh as both a saintly, gentlemanly man of impeccable dignity, and, apparently, a drunken entitled brat who started fistfights.

Underlining its commitment to fair and honest journalism in a time of great national crisis, The New York Times has published, without comment or corroborating evidence, a North Carolina State University professor’s full statement accusing Brett Kavanaugh of drinking and starting a fight while at Yale.

NCSU professor Charles Ludington claims that while he and Kavanaugh were classmates at Yale the Supreme Court nominee often got so drunk he became belligerent and, on one occasion, instigated a fight that led to the arrest of a fellow student.

“When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive,” Ludington wrote. “On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”

These claims run counter to numerous other accounts of Kavanaugh’s behavior from dozens and dozens of acquaintances of the esteemed judge.

As seems to be the case with much of the Kavanaugh kerfuffle, the truth may or may not ever be fully understood.
