Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is working overtime to clear his name of sexual assault allegations, attempting to cast himself as a hardworking and studious high school kid who might have had a little much to drink at times but certainly never mistreated women.
But not all of Kavanaugh’s classmates agree with his characterization of Georgetown Prep or his own behavior during his time there, with one saying the football team’s treatment of Renate Schroeder Dolphin — who was memorialized in their yearbook as someone they had all been with — was “disgusting” both then and now.
> Two of Kavanaugh’s classmates say the mentions of Renate were part of the football players’ unsubstantiated boasting about their conquests.
> “They were very disrespectful, at least verbally, with Renate,” said Sean Hagan, a Georgetown Prep student at the time, referring to Kavanaugh and his teammates. “I can’t express how disgusted I am with them, then and now.”
> Kavanaugh’s peers have given different accounts of what he was like. But his yearbook provides a contemporaneous glimpse of the elite Catholic school’s hard-drinking atmosphere — Kavanaugh’s personal page boasts, “100 kegs or bust” — and a culture that some describe as disrespectful to women.
