Kavanaugh's memory of himself in school is very different than yearbook portrayal

Committee member Paul T. Moxley said in a statement to the Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh, "enjoys an excellent reputation for integrity and is a person of outstanding character".

Flake said he, Delaware Democrat Chris Coons and others agreed to ask for the broader Senate to delay a final vote for no more than a week to allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into Blasey Ford's allegations of being sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh when the two of them were teenagers.

The word "Renate" can be found 14 times across Georgetown Prep's 1983 yearbook in these profiles and in a caption under a group photo of Kavanaugh and his football teammates, who called themselves "Renate Alumni".

Kavanaugh's lawyer claims the yearbook refers to one occasion when Kavanaugh kissed Ms. Dolphin.

Then they heard a fiery, tearful and defensive rebuttal from Kavanaugh, who denied the allegations but pointedly refused to explain to Sen.

Dolphin told the Times she was unaware that she was the subject of the inside jokes between Kavanaugh and his friends in the senior yearbook, and said she had only found out "a few days ago".

The yearbook page, written by Kavanaugh, details his high school accomplishments such as his time on various sports teams, but then lists "Keg City Club (Treasurer)", "I Survived the FFFFFFFourth of July", and "Judge - Have You Boofed Yet?" "Some questions are so fundamental to judicial integrity that the Senate can not rush past them without undermining the public's confidence in the Court".

Kavanaugh was asked about the memos at his confirmation hearing in 2006, where he repeatedly denied that he had received the memos or knew anything about him.

Other congressional Wikipedia editors were posting the DC addresses of Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee to the site. "I was completely astounded when I saw she signed that letter".

Some students who declined to be quoted by name said there is support for Kavanaugh on campus and that others were rushing to judgment too quickly on the allegations against him.

Walsh was one of many Georgetown Prep alumni who signed a letter vouching for Kavanaugh's "sharp intellectual ability, affable nature, and a practical and fair approach devoid of partisan goal". 'But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone'.

One of the other people described in that yearbook as a "Renate Alumni" is Mark Judge.

First-year student Tori Sullivan said she wasn't satisfied at the end of Thursday's hearing and wished there had been an investigation. We never had any sexual interaction. As a general matter, he said he has never had a sexual encounter with more than a single woman present. "I can't imagine being Dr. Ford and seeing someone who sexually assaulted you screaming before the entire country".

"As a survivor of sexual assault myself, my heart aches for her", Peterson said. She said she hadn't told anyone before this past week. Ford alleges Kavanaugh pinned her down, groped her, and tried to remove her clothes. Ramirez says he exposed himself to her during a drinking game at Yale and caused her to touch him in an unwanted way.
