Ashley Estes & Brett Kavanaugh: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
According to her LinkedIn profile, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh’s last listed job was in 2010, and it was a significant one. She was the Media Relations Coordinator for the George W. Bush Presidential Center. And from 2005 to 2009, she was Director of Special Projects for the George W. Bush Presidential Foundation. But her connection to the Bush family dates back much farther than that.

Ashley was Personal Secretary to President George W. Bush and worked in the White House at the same time as Brett Kavanaugh, before they were married. She was there from 2001 to 2005. She was also Bush’s personal assistant while he was Governor of Texas from 1996 to 1999 and for the Bush-Cheney Presidential campaign from 1996 to 2000.

In fact, Ashley and Brett met while they both worked for the White House. Brett was associate counsel and then staff secretary when he met Ashley, while she was Bush’s secretary. Bush also appointed Kavanaugh to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 2006.

Ashley and Brett Kavanaugh were married in 2004, when Brett was a United States Circuit Judge. President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush attended their wedding. Their wedding was featured in a “Weddings of the Rich and Famous” column published in the Washingtonian, but only because the Bushes attended.

6. That's a fair leap of logic.

The dude already worked for the Bush White House when he met her. He already had face time with the President.

And he'd already clerked for Anthony Kennedy in the early / mid 90's. For lawyers, clerking for a Supreme Court Justice basically puts you on track for the hall of fame. He could have worked for any of the prestigious law firms in the country and made over $500k as a rookie.

If you're saying one of them married the other for status and connections, I'd be more inclined to say she married him for that purpose.

It doesn't change the fact that he's a rapist asshole, but his work resume was pristine.
