Brett Kavanaugh: Yearbook's sexist joke haunts Supreme Court nominee

A woman who reportedly knew Judge Brett Kavanaugh in high school and publicly defended his character in a letter signed by 64 other women, learned her name was the subject of a vulgar inside joke between him and his friends.

Dolphin responded through her lawyer, "I think Brett must have me confused with someone else, because I never kissed him". One former student, Michael Walsh, wrote a poem in his yearbook that said: 'You need a date / and it's getting late / so don't hesitate / to call Renate'.

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse told Kavanaugh at Thursday's hearing the yearbook page was relevant because it was from the time numerous alleged incidents took place.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford stated Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and covered her mouth with such force that she feared he might accidentally kill her, as he tried to remove her clothing while his friend watched, during a party in high school.

Heading into Brett Kavanaugh's Senate testimony about sexual assault allegations, which he denied, speculation swirled about a series of cryptic comments on his page in Georgetown Preparatory School's 1983 yearbook.

Kavanaugh was one of 13 graduating seniors who referred to Dolphin in some way in their Georgetown Prep senior yearbook.

'Judge Kavanaugh, do not delay the inevitable. One classmate said the Georgetown Prep boys were "very disrespectful, at least verbally, with Renate". I guess a lot of people are figuring out Kavanaugh wasn't almost as "respectful" towards women as they were led to believe.

Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, stood by her husband in an interview with Fox News on Monday.

"Beach Week" was an annual Maryland prep school trip to DE that often involved heavy drinking, according to the Washington Post.

"Most of the time everyone, including the girls, was drunk", Judge wrote in Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk, a memoir of his alcoholism and recovery.

In Wasted, Judge refers to a "Bart O'Kavanaugh" who was passed out from drinking too much and threw up in a vehicle.

Kavanaugh and Ford are expected to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

In the video below, Kavanaugh claimed his use of the word "boof" referred to flatulence, while a "devil's triangle" is a drinking game similar to quarters.

Kavanaugh also said on Fox that he kept his virginity through high school and for "many years after" college, though neither of his accusers said they had sexual intercourse.
