The latest available copy of Mark Judge’s memoir, “Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk,” in which he details a booze-fueled adolescence at Georgetown Prep, sold for more than $300 on eBay Wednesday.

In his opus, Judge — the named witness to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged high school-aged misconduct — makes reference to a “Bart O’Kavanaugh” who “puked in someone’s car” and “passed out on his way back from a party.”




Like Judge, seller Kelly Draper, a social worker, said she is also in recovery, “which is why I bought it.”

“LOL I just sold my Mark Judge memoir ‘Wasted: Tales of a Gen-X Drunk’ for over $300 onEbay. Y’all people are nuts,” she tweeted after the sale went though.

Draper said she had received “a lot of interest” in the item, but needed to “sell it fast to buy a plane ticket for a wedding next weekend.”

She bets she could have made even more money off of the book, but also figured its shelf life would soon expire.

“I couldn’t hold out for a month, with diminishing returns and all,” she told the Daily News.

Two other copies of “Wasted” sold days earlier for $305 and $125.

Despite renewed interest in the tell-all, its publisher said it has no plans to print more copies.

“We aren’t planning to put it back into print because of the news,” said Hazelden Publishing spokesman Jeremiah Gardner.

“Wasted” was published in 1997 and was out of print by 2000.

“Because it was out of print three years later, it’s a safe assumption that it wasn’t one of our best sellers,” Gardner said.

Judge was found holed up at a close friend’s Delaware beach house Tuesday, The Washington Post reported.

Three women have come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct since he was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Trump.

Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, named Judge as an eyewitness to her claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh denies having any memory of the episode.

His third accuser, Julie Swetnick, named the pair of high school classmates as alleged participants in gang rapes at parties in the early 1980s.




“In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’ rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present,” Swetnick wrote under penalty of perjury.

She claims she was incapacitated without her consent and was “unable to fight off the boys raping me.”

Both Judge and Kavanaugh, through representatives, have refuted Ford and Swetnick’s accusations.
