WaPo: Could this major (league) scandal sink Kavanaugh nomination?

In other words, Judge Kavanaugh fronted the cost of season tickets for his friends by putting them on his charge cards, and paid it off after his pals kicked in their share. This foul pop-up led to much mirth and merriment on Twitter when the story first appeared, with some questioning whether any Nats fan could be said to have the requisite judgment necessary for a seat on the Supreme Court. The general consensus was that pointing out that Kavanaugh loves baseball, has the trust of his friends, and pays off his debts was not likely to be much of a political liability in a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting.
