Madison Cawthorn: David Madison Cawthorn is an American politician who has represented the 11th congressional district of North Carolina since 2021. He was elected to Congress in 2020 as a member of the Republican Party to replace Republican Mark Meadows.
Cawthorn is the firstborn in the 1990s and the youngest member of Congress since Jed Johnson Jr.
He sees himself as a constitutional conservative and a Christian. He’s been chastised for his divisive speech, including incorrectly claiming that the 2020 presidential election was rigged, but he’s since backtracked.
Madison Cawthorn Arrested With a Gun
According to WLOS, Cawthorn was previously arrested with a gun in February 2021, when he attempted to board an airplane in Asheville with a 9mm pistol and a loaded magazine in his carry-on luggage.
Cawthorn may have broken the law by engaging in insider trading, according to an article published in The Washington Examiner on Tuesday.
A leaked video revealed last week that a former Cawthorn aide is pursuing a complaint against the scandal-plagued legislator for allegedly inappropriately refusing to grant time off following two unexpected family medical problems, including her uncle’s death and her husband’s heart attack.
Cawthorn also came under fire recently for comparing Capitol Hill to the Netflix series “House of Cards” and discussing alleged cocaine-fueled orgies.
“In Washington, there is a lot of sexual deviance. “I mean, being a young guy in Washington, where the average age is probably 60 or 70 — look at all these guys, a lot of whom I’ve looked up to my whole life, and I’ve always paid attention to politics,” Cawthorn said on the Warrior Poet Society podcast.
“Then, out of nowhere, you’re welcomed.” ‘We’re having a sexual get-together in one of our houses, and you should attend,’ she says. ‘What exactly did you ask me to come to?’ And suddenly you realize you’ve been invited to an orgy.”
Kevin McCarthy Will Speak with Madison Cawthorn About The Orgy And Coke Remarks
Rep. Madison Cawthorn, who publicly characterized fellow GOP members as orgy-crazed party animals right out of “House of Cards,” said Tuesday that he wants a discussion with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
Several House Republicans complained to McCarthy earlier in the day in a closed-door conference meeting about charges made by Cawthorn that several of his colleagues had invited him to orgies and snorted lines of cocaine in front of him.
One of the congressmen who spoke up at the conference, Rep. Steve Womack, said he was being probed by reporters about Cawthorn‘s charges of drug usage and debauchery, according to Politico.
According to the source, Womack said many of his coworkers weren’t exactly crazy, going to bed at 9 p.m. and still using fax machines and flip phones.
According to sources, he chastised Cawthorn, who was not present at the meeting, for lumping everyone together with his accusations of craven behavior.
According to the Hill, McCarthy promised the GOPers that he would speak with Cawthorn about his remarks.
Madison Cawthorn Sexual Allegations
Several women accused Cawthorn of sexually aggressive behavior, sexual misconduct, and sexual assault during his congressional campaign in August 2020. When Katrina Krulikas was 17 and Cawthorn was 19, he forced her to sit on his lap and tried to kiss her forcibly twice, which she resisted.
“I did try to kiss her, just very normal, just in a flirting way,” Cawthorn stated, adding, “If I did make her feel unsafe, I feel horrible,” but he questioned the timing of her allegation. Krulikas’ charges were portrayed by his campaign as politically motivated, which she disputed.
Following Krulikas’ charges, three additional women accused Cawthorn of sexual misbehavior, including forcible groping and kissing.
When she turned down Cawthorn’s sexual attempts, she claims he dubbed her “just a little blonde, slutty American girl.”
On October 17, 2020, a number of Patrick Henry College alumni released a public statement accusing Cawthorn of “sexually predatory behavior,” as well as vandalism and lying, when he was a student there for less than one semester.
The letter started with ten signatories, but in less than a week, it grew to nearly 150 alumni. Cawthorn said that the majority of the signers were strangers to him, and his campaign responded with a letter of support signed by six alumni, two of whom work for Cawthorn’s campaign.
Former Patrick Henry College President Michael Farris intimated support in Cawthorn’s answer letter; Farris disavowed the support letter and begged not to be linked with it.
A BuzzFeed News investigation in February 2021 discovered 20 persons who said Cawthorn had harassed his female peers while in college; the writers spoke with four women who claimed he had harassed them.
Cawthorn was accused of carelessly driving women to distant regions off-campus while asking them sexual inquiries, which he referred to as “fun drives.” Women should avoid Cawthorn and not ride in his automobile, according to two resident assistants.
Cawthorn joked about dragging a woman into his lap and inserting a finger between her legs, according to a male acquaintance.
Madison Cawthorn Illegal Acts
Agents from the Transportation Security Administration discovered an empty Glock 9mm handgun and a loaded magazine in Cawthorn’s carry-on bag at the Asheville Regional Airport in February 2021. Cawthorn‘s spokesman stated the gun, magazine, and ammunition were supposed to be packed in his checked luggage.
Cawthorn was briefly held at a Charlotte, North Carolina, the airport in April 2022 for attempting to board a commercial airline while carrying a loaded weapon in his carry-on luggage. He was helpful, according to police, and he was cited for having a hazardous weapon on city grounds.
Cawthorn was accused of driving while his license was revoked and two speeding citations were still pending in March 2022. He has a court date in May 2022 and could face jail time. A charge of driving with a revoked license was dropped in 2017.
Senator Thom Tillis requested an investigation into Cawthorn for suspected violations of the STOCK Act in April 2022, claiming that Cawthorn‘s purchase of an anti-Biden “Let’s Go Brandon” cryptocurrency without notice may have broken congressional insider trading regulations.
