A woman who knew Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in high school has denounced a "horrible" and "simply untrue" insinuation about her in his yearbook, The New York Times reported Monday.
According to the Times, Renate Schroeder Dolphin’s name appeared in a photo in Georgetown Preparatory School’s 1983 yearbook that featured Kavanaugh and four other men along with the caption “Renate Alumni.”
According to the newspaper, the phrase was a reference to their relations with Dolphin, whether it be dating, attending dances or some other contact.
Her name also reportedly appeared at least 14 times on several other individuals' pages.
“I learned about these yearbook pages only a few days ago,” Dolphin said in a statement to the Times.
“I don’t know what ‘Renate Alumnus’ actually means. I can’t begin to comprehend what goes through the minds of 17-year-old boys who write such things, but the insinuation is horrible, hurtful and simply untrue. I pray their daughters are never treated this way. I will have no further comment.”
Dolphin was among 64 other women who signed a letter earlier this month saying they knew Kavanaugh — who’s facing an accusation that he sexually assaulted a woman at a party in the early 1980s — during their high school years.
The letter also stated Kavanaugh “has behaved honorably and treated women with respect,” the Times noted.
