Kavanaugh classmate throws cold water on his claims of virginity: ‘He claimed otherwise during freshman year’

Published

Historian Steve Kantrowitz, who graduated from Yale with a B.A. in history in 1987, is calling into question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s claim to have been a virgin throughout college.

Kantrowitz, who is now a history professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, writes on Twitter that he can recall Kavanaugh discussing his sexual exploits during their freshman year at Yale.

“Perhaps Brett Kavanaugh was a virgin for many years after high school,” Kantrowitz writes. “But he claimed otherwise in a conversation with me during our freshman year in Lawrance Hall at Yale, in the living room of my suite.”

In his past tweets, Kantrowitz has expressed liberal views and has spoken out against Kavanaugh’s confirmation on political grounds. The latest tweet, however, marks the first time that the professor has called out the Supreme Court nominee for being dishonest while talking about his personal life.

Kantrowitz’s tweet was cited by New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer, who said that such claims cut to the heart of Kavanaugh’s credibility as an honest person.

"While Democrats have worried about Biden’s struggles to excite younger voters, older voters who are upset with the president are poised to be potentially more influential in November, especially in swing states whose populations skew their way, like Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin," reported Jenna Johnson and Lori Rozsa. "In Florida, more than 20 percent of those who voted in the 2016 election were over age 65, according to exit polls. In 2016, Trump won the Florida senior vote by a 17-point margin over Clinton, according to exit polls. The state ranks as one Trump must almost certainly win to insure his victory, while Biden has other paths to the White House."
