Getty Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Tad Low is a classmate of Brett Kavanaugh’s from Yale. Low was an undergraduate while Kavanaugh was working towards his law degree. On Tuesday, a letter from Low to Sen. Chuck Grassley was revealed to the public, in which Low contends that he was an eyewitness to a “shocking ceremony” held by Kavanaugh’s fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon.

To The New York Daily NewsLow said that he’s tried to speak with the FBI about this event, and that this process has been a “supremely frustrating” experience.

He said, “They at least acknowledged they had a record of my call and said it has been ‘submitted out’ accordingly. I don’t know, maybe they threw it in trash. They won’t even send me an email confirming I submitted my claim. They said if I’d like to add additional information, I could wait on hold for another 30 minutes.”

Low’s Full Letter Details an Event in Which a Prostitute Performed a ‘Public Sex Act’

In the letter to Grassley (which you can read above in full), Low maintains that he was an eyewitness of an event put on by DKE, the fraternity that Kavanaugh was a part of during his years at Yale. The event, which he has claimed to know multiple other witnesses of, included a prostitute performing a “public sex act,” though Low does not get more specific than that.

Kavanaugh has not yet responded to this claim. What’s more, Low is quick to make clear that he does not know if Kavanaugh was specifically at this event, or if it was just put on by the fraternity that he’s associated with.

Low wrote, “I can’t say for certain that Judge Kavanaugh was present in the frat house during the event, but he was at Yale during the time period [1987-88 school year], attending Yale Law School, and I suspect he might have attended what  would have been a big party in the frat’s newly purchased off-campus house.”
