Records Reveal Kavanaugh Was Part Of Notorious Frat That Was Banned For ‘No Means Yes’ Chant
According to a new report, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was part of a fraternity that was banned from Yale University for chanting “no means yes” in front of the campus women’s center.
According to Yale Daily News, Kavanaugh pledged with the Yale University’s DKE in the late 80’s, which was known to be a party frat.
Kavanaugh also participated in a secret society with a crude nickname that appeared to be based upon members hooking up with women as much as possible.
Steve Gallo, a former member of the frat, told Yale Daily News that the DKE leadership used to send pledges onto campus to search for female underwear so they can fly on flagpoles to embellish the DKE banner.
Gallo said the flag “was just somebody’s stupid idea” and that the underwear was “obtained consensually.”
According to the YaleWomen Facebook page, that was not true, the underwear was not obtained consensually. Jennifer Lew, class of ’87, wrote on the page and said that the DKE boys would ransack the women’s dorms.
According to the Yale paper, “Since Kavanaugh’s graduation in 1987, DKE’s reputation for mistreating women at Yale has only grown. Yale banned DKE from campus for five years in 2011 after videos circulated of fraternity recruits chanting ‘no means yes, yes means anal’ in front of the University’s Women’s Center.”
The report notes that Yale University recently launched an investigation into “the fraternity’s sexual climate after reports in the Yale Daily News and Business Insider documented sexual assault allegations against more than half a dozen members, including the fraternity’s former president.”
