Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh is a BIG baseball fan

We may never know Brett Kavanaugh’s real opinion on ‘Roe v. Wade

On Monday night, President Donald Trump announced his nomination of current federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement - and Kavanaugh's appointment could be one of the most influential in recent history.

Part of the debt is linked to Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for baseball playoff games that Kavanaugh bought for himself and friends.

On Wednesday the White House revealed that Kavanaugh is actually so painfully "all-American" that he racked up a large amount of credit card debt due to his love of baseball.

In 2017, the credit card debts and loans were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements.

The Post reported that Kavanaugh incurred between $15,000 to $50,000 in credit card debt for each account as well as a Thrift Savings Plan loan between $15,000 to $50,000.

The forms show in 2016 he accrued a credit card bill between $45,000 and $150,000 that was spent on home improvements and Washington Nationals season tickets for himself and some friends.

The financial site MarketWatch noted that according to his listed assets, Kavanaugh will become, if he is confirmed, the only member of the Supreme Court who is not a millionaire, leading the site to ask, "Brett Kavanaugh has saved nearly nothing - so does he actually understand business?"

Nationals season ticket packages can vary depending on their location in the stadium, the report notes.

"Shah did not provide the names of the friends or additional details about the tickets".

Kavanaugh's required disclosure forms deal in broad ranges, so it's hard to get an accurate picture of his financial situation (with good Nationals seasons tickets running as much as $6,000 Kavanaugh could have been buying tickets for ten friends, or almost three dozen).

Kavanaugh also reported liabilities that exceeded the value of his total assets, according to financial disclosures released by the White House.

Shah said the payments for the tickets were made at the end of 2016 and paid off early the next year.

'Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist who has dedicated his life to public service, ' Shah said.

Unlike the other justices on the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh has not worked in private practice, where it is easier to amass wealth as an attorney. That, the Washington Post reports, puts him "at the bottom of the financial ranking of justices, most of whom list well over $1 million in assets".

U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel brought a striking visual aid - a wire coat hanger - to a briefing for reporters in Washington, D.C., as a way of dramatizing the importance of abortion rights in the debate over whether Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.
