Kavanaugh on going into debt for baseball tickets: 'I'm a huge sports fan'

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is providing senators with new details on a question that has stumped lawmakers and captured the media's attention: Why did he go into debt to buy baseball tickets?

Kavanaugh told members of the Judiciary Committee, in written responses released Wednesday night, that he is a "huge sports fan."

"When the Nationals came to D.C. in 2005, I purchased four season tickets in my name every season from 2005 through 2017. I also purchased playoff packages for the four years that the Nationals made the playoffs," Kavanaugh wrote in response to a question from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

The Washington Post reported earlier this year that Kavanaugh ran up tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt in order to buy baseball tickets for his friends and himself.

The story sparked months of questions - and an investigation by ProPublica - about why Kavanaugh would go into debt for baseball tickets and who accompanied him to those games.

But Kavanaugh, in written responses to senators, said he had a group of "old friends" who would split the games included in a season ticket pass.

"We would usually divide the tickets in a 'ticket draft' at my house. Everyone in the group paid me for theirtickets based on the cost of the tickets, to the dollar," Kavanaugh wrote.

He added that none of his friends "overpaid or underpaid me for tickets. No loans were given in either direction."
