NYT Obtains Kavanaugh Note Where He Describes Himself As “Loud Obnoxious Drunk"

Brett Kavanaugh described himself and his friends as "obnoxious drunks" in a 1983 Beach Week letter.

In a note Brett Kavanaugh wrote while organizing “Beach Week” in 1983, the Supreme Court nominee referred to himself and his group of friends as “loud, obnoxious drunks”, according to The New York Times.

> The beachfront property was rented, the guests were invited and an ever-organized Brett M. Kavanaugh had some advice for the seven Georgetown Preparatory School classmates who would be joining him for the weeklong escapade.

>

> In a 1983 letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The New York Times, the young Judge Kavanaugh warned his friends of the danger of eviction from an Ocean City, Md., condo. In a neatly written postscript, he added: Whoever arrived first at the condo should “warn the neighbors that we’re loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us. Advise them to go about 30 miles...”

> Recent interviews with more than a dozen classmates and friends from that time depict Judge Kavanaugh as a member of a small clique of football players who dominated Georgetown Prep’s work-hard, play-hard culture. His circle celebrated a culture of heavy drinking, even by the standards of that era.

In response to a New York Times request for comment on the letter, through his lawyers, Kavanaugh said only: “This is a note I wrote to organize ‘Beach Week’ in the summer of 1983.”

> In the handwritten letter, Judge Kavanaugh told his friends that he would be on a family trip to Ireland when the lease started, so they would have to pick up the keys and settle the outstanding $398 bill. He reminded them to bring their own towels and bedding.

>

> “One of you has to grab the bull by the horns and take charge,” he instructed.

>

> “I think we are unanimous that any girls we can beg to stay there are welcomed with open....,” he wrote, his ellipsis at the end leaving certain things unsaid. He noted that the boys should kick out anyone who didn’t belong: “The danger of eviction is great and that would suck because of the money and because this week has big potential.
