Brett Kavanaugh was in the headlines again, with new stories about the “harmless fun” [New York Times, 2019] he may or may not have taken part in during his high school and college careers.
Last article about Kavanaugh, we briefly wrote about the allegations brought forward against him, but focused mostly on the surprising amount of integrity he acts with in his relatively new position in the Supreme Court. However; this isn’t to say that we don’t think he’s absolute trash.
Although these new stories aren’t backed by the person who was said to be the victim, with the word “impeachment” flying around so uproariously these days, It’s hard not to think that, maybe, it would be irresponsible to give such important duties to a person with so many allegations against them – without a full investigation – as quickly as Brett seemed to have been.
And, maybe, if we weren’t talking about Trump Era politics, we wouldn’t laugh at the thought.
