Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took to Fox News on Monday night to defend himself from allegations of sexual assault when he was in high school, claiming that he was a virgin “for many years” after leaving Yale University.
But his former college classmate Stephen Kantrowitz, now an award-winning history professor at the University of Wisconsin, remembered him differently:

Other women have also come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of inappropriate behavior after Christine Blasey Ford came forward last week with her claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a alcohol-filled high school party. Kavanaugh’s Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker on Sunday that he had pushed his penis in her face and forced her to touch it during another drunken party.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told ABC on Tuesday that the White House would be open to Ramirez testifying at Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing alongside Kavanaugh and Blasey Ford.
Kavanaugh told Fox News that the claims against him were false, that he never attended a party like the one Blasey Ford described, and that he has never sexually assaulted anyone.
