Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amassed tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt in part by purchasing baseball tickets to Washington Nationals games, according to a Washington Post review of Kavanaugh’s financial disclosures and information provided by the White House.
Kavanaugh has reported having up to $200,000 in credit card debt during the past 10 years, according to the Post’s report. In 2006 — the year he was confirmed as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit — he reported having between $60,000 to $200,000 in debt.
In 2016, Kavanaugh reported having the same range of debt spread over three credit cards and a personal loan.
White House spokesman Raj Shah told the Post that Kavanaugh incurred his debt because he buys Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and a “handful” of friends, as well as for home improvements.
