In her allegations against Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, 55-year-old web designer Julie Swetnick claimed that Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge were involved in spiking drinks at parties with Quaaludes — a powerful sedative drug — and high-potency alcohol, according to a sworn affidavit posted on the Twitter account of her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
High school yearbook entries, according to the reporter who broke the story of the first sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh in The Intercept, may actually corroborate Swetnick's allegations of Quaalude and high-proof alcohol use amongst Kavanugh's circle of friends. Several of the entries contain references to "Killer Qs" and "151."
"'Killer Qs and 151' is quite plausibly a reference to quaaludes and grain alcohol, which Julie Swetnick said were used to drug high school girls," wrote reporter Ryan Grim on his Twitter account.
In addition, HillHeat consulting editor Brad Johnson — who noted the yearbook "Killer Qs" references in an account published by Medium.com — reported that Kavanaugh friends Donald J. Urgo and Phil Merkle both mention "Killer Qs" in their yearbook entries, with Merkle referencing a "Killer Qs club," and Urgo's entry reading "Killer Qs and 151."
Both Urgo and Merkle were specifically mentioned by Kavanaugh in his now-infamous 2015 speech in which he stated, "What happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep. That's been a good thing for all of us, I think," as Johnson noted in an earlier article for the online environmental policy site Hill Heat.
