A letter written by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from his time in high school described him and his group of friends as “loud, obnoxious drunks.”

The New York Times obtained a copy of the June 1983 letter Kavanaugh sent to his friends in high school ahead of a weeklong beach vacation in Ocean City, Md., which included his recommendation to warn the neighbors of what they could expect from the group of boys.

“It would probably be a good idea on Sat. the 18th to warn the neighbors that we’re loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us,” Kavanaugh wrote in the handwritten letter.

In his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday, Kavanaugh said that he would occasionally have too many beers and “cringed” at his behavior as a high schooler and young college student.

Kavanaugh downplayed claims that he was a frequent binge-drinker.

Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick are among three of the most high-profile instances of women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault and misconduct while attending high school and college parties. Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations.

The committee voted along party lines to recommend Kavanaugh’s nomination and move the vote on his confirmation to the Senate floor.
