Everyone is saying he’s afraid of perjuring himself. Really? Perjury would require him to say something other than, “As my book about my adolescent alcoholism will attest, I couldn’t actually remember enough to make my book interesting. I wish I could remember a darkly comedic incident where i inadvertently saved a girl from being raped, or me being raped by the Monseigneur or anything interesting at all! Maybe I would’ve sold more than 100 copies of my book to my dear mum. But, nope, it’s all just one big blackout.” Honestly, I think he’s humiliated and fearful that his shitty book and his incompetent anonymization technique - “Bart O’Kavanaugh” somehow seems inadequate - is going to be his one and only entry in Wikipedia. He’s a recovering alcoholic with kids and the last thing he wants is for this to humiliate his family more than his tragically mediocre Gen X memoir already does. As his brother’s public public rebuttal of his book noted, “Mark is a solipsist: spoiled as a child, gazing always inward, unable to recognize any pain but his own.”

There's some stuff about pretty heavy partying in Mark Judge's book "Wasted: Tales of a Gen-X Drunk"

In the book, Mark Judge (who was the 2nd person in the room during Kavanaugh's assault) describes “Bart O’Kavanaugh,” who “puked in someone’s car the other night” and “passed out on his way back from a party.”

I don't know if OP has more, but that Brett Kavanaugh is so heavily featured in a highschool friend's book about teenage alcoholism is the best I can find.

His friend, who vouched for him extensively about their high school parties, including quotes to the effect of 'sometimes a woman says no but her body language means yes.' There's also a line in his, Kavanaugh's, and others' yearbook quotes that say 'Renate Alum' which is how the guys all bragged about sleeping with this woman Renate. Renate herself initially defended Brett, then someone showed this to her.

So I mean, we know 100% he was a douchebag who used women and bragged about it. The question is, what do his abusive friends mean when they say he 'did nothing wrong'? I'll leave a Mark Judge quote to give some extra context:

>Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs.
