Trophy Case: Kavanagh’s high school yearbook is a collection of horrors


When Kavanagh’s alleged “65 women who support him” was claimed, I wasn’t surprised that few of the women responded, and that most wouldn’t comment or publicly refuted him. My snarky response at the time was that he handed his school yearbook to one of his stooges, and said, “Pick out only the names that I didn’t write comments on or beside their faces. They’re the ones I wasn’t interested in. The rest, don’t mention or call them.”

As it turns out, that horrible insinuation has turned out to be true. He and several other former male students wrote a sexual innuendo about a young woman from another school in the area. The ones who put “Renate Alumnus” beside their pictures may have inferred they “scored” with her.  From The Independent, UK:

Brett Kavanaugh: ‘Horrible, hurtful taunts’ towards schoolgirl in high school yearbook revealed

Brett Kavanaugh’s page in his high school yearbook offers a glimpse of the teenage years of the man who is now President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee: lots of football, plenty of drinking, parties at the beach. Among the reminiscences about sports and booze is a mysterious entry: “Renate Alumnius.”

The word “Renate” appears at least 14 times in Georgetown Preparatory School’s 1983 yearbook, on individuals’ pages and in a group photo of nine football players, including Kavanaugh, who were described as the “Renate Alumni.” It is a reference to Renate Schroeder, then a student at a nearby Catholic girls’ school.

Two of Kavanaugh’s classmates say the mentions of Renate were part of the football players’ unsubstantiated boasting about their conquests.

One has to wonder if this is a stage of serial killers, like keeping trophies from murders they commit.
