Days after he was nominated for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh was found to have piled up thousands of dollars of credit card debt by buying baseball tickets.

The Washington Post reported the news Wednesday, citing White House spokesman Raj Shah in its report. Kavanaugh is apparently a big Washington Nationals fan. The tickets were said to be for him and several friends. 

Not only did Kavanaugh pile up the credit card debt by buying Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and friends, but he also incurred debt from home improvements, per the report. 

The White House didn’t comment directly on Kavanaugh’s fandom, but said he “is a brilliant jurist who has dedicated his life to public service.” And someone dedicated to public service certainly deserves a ballgame splurge every once in a while, no?

He ran up between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt split among three cards and a personal loan. According to filings reported by the Post, the credit card debts were paid off in 2017. Well that, or they were low enough to not have to be reported.
