It should be noted that the value of Kavanaugh's home is not subject to disclosure, and the judge also has a government retirement account worth nearly $500,000 that also does not need to be disclosed, according to Shah. So how did Kavanaugh pay down the alleged baseball debts?
- "Purchasing season tickets to watch the chronically disappointing Washington Nationals play baseball in their charmless stadium year after year", Deadspin deadpanned "is a troubling sign of poor judgment".
Kavanaugh has also worked in the public sector and did not build his wealth through private practice, the report states.
But for Kavanaugh, the differences are stark between his finances and those of his would-be peers on the Court.
Federal law requires only broad ranges for disclosure forms, and such filings include assets for spouses, so it is hard to pinpoint an exact financial snapshot for an individual.
While the federal financial reporting requirements do not mandate that home values be included on the disclosure forms, the Yahoo! report said that Kavanaugh and his wife paid $1.2 million for their home in 2006.
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.
Justice Clarence Thomas has assets listed between $695,000 to $1.7 million, which is the least among the justices, not counting departing Justice Anthony Kennedy, but still at least 10 times that of Kavanaugh.
A 2017 report from the Center for Public Integrity said that at least six of the nine justices were millionaires, with Justice Stephen Breyer reporting a minimum net worth of $6.15 million in 2016 and Chief Justice John Roberts a minimum reportable net worth of more than $5 million. His salary as an appeals court judge is $220,000 per year, and he also pulls in a little more than $27,000 from teaching duties at Harvard Law School.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg earned $25,000 as a visiting fellow to Stanford University past year.
