With the nation divided over Brett Kavanaugh, it might be a bad time to be Brett Kavanagh. Brett Kavanagh of Louisville, Kentucky, shares the same name as the new Supreme Court Justice but not the same spelling. Kavanagh recently attracted attention after tweeting about his misfortune. “As soon as he had got nominated, I was getting immediate hate tweets,” Kavanagh told Inside Edition. His tweet has since gone viral, and he is not the only civilian with a name in the news.
