The New York Times and Associated Press have both reportedly filed public information requests in Maryland to comb through emails Ashley Kavanaugh — wife of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — sent as town manager for her tiny neighborhood in Chevy Chase.
According to NTK Network — a GOP-linked America Rising PAC outlet — the documents were obtained by the conservative America Rising Squared, and showed the AP requested "all emails sent or received" by Kavanaugh's Village of Chevy Chase email address, while the Times asks for "any emails to or from Ms. Kavanaugh that contain any of the keywords or terms listed below."
The Times list includes politically charged words like "liberal," "abortion," "gay," and "federalist" and also ask for emails containing the names of certain individuals, the NTK Network reported, which characterizes the request as "most interested in echoing liberal attack lines in the battle over Judge Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination."
According to The Washington Post, Ashley Kavanaugh is manager for the section of Chevy Chase where the Kavanaugh family lives in Maryland, with responsibilities that include organizing the neighborhood's Fourth of July parade, a two-block long procession that ends with a barbecue.
The national news organizations' requests are posted by the conservative news outlet.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., reportedly might delay the vote on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee until just before the upcoming midterm elections.
