Cawthorn’s Fibs Land Him in Hot Water with GOP

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1976: Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs found Apple Computer in the garage of Jobs’ parents house in Cupertino, California.

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) had a tense meeting with House GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), wherein the 26-year-old admitted that his comments about his Congressional colleagues inviting him to orgies and doing cocaine in front of him were “exaggerated.” 

McCarthy says he may take further action against Cawthorn over his “unacceptable” remarks, which sparked uproar within the House Republican conference.

“I just told him he’s lost my trust, he’s gonna have to earn it back, and I laid out everything I find is unbecoming. And, you can’t just say, ‘You can’t do this again.’ I mean, he’s, he’s got a lot of members very upset.”

The House GOP leader said Cawthorn admitted that some of his remarks during an interview with the Warrior Poet Society podcast were erroneous and “exaggerated.”

“In the interview, he claims he watched people do cocaine. Then when he comes in he tells me, he says he thinks he saw maybe a staffer in a parking garage from 100 yards away,” McCarthy said.

“It’s just frustrating. There’s no evidence behind his statements. And when I sit down with him … I told him you can’t make statements like that, as a member of Congress, that affects everybody else and the country as a whole.”

Podcast host John Lovell had asked Cawthorn whether House of Cards was a “fictious show” or if it was “closer to like a documentary.” The lawmaker said he’d experienced “sexual perversion” on Capitol Hill and that some of his colleagues had invited him to an orgy and done cocaine in his presence.

Several House GOP members were irate upon hearing Cawthorn’s claims, with many demanding that Cawthorn “name names” if he’s going to make such allegations.

“Madison’s stuff irritates me because it’s not true,” Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) said. “He’ll have to either name names or retract it.”

McCarthy said he plans to wait and see what Cawthorn does to improve before taking further action.

    I want to hear from Cawthorn before I will believe this. We know there is corruption in Congress and he must have hit a nerve for McCarthy to make this statement. Also I remember an article about a reporters advise to a new Congressman was to not go to parties at the homes of political members because he could be drugged and wake up the next day with a photo laying on his chest of him in a compromising position. This is how they control their voting blocks with blackmail. Power and money equals corruption.

    How on earth did someone who is obviously addicted to lying ever get elected to such a high office?? Unbelievable !! Especially since it is the Republican Party !!!!

      You ask, “How on earth did someone who is obviously addicted to lying ever get elected to such a high office??” Seriously?!? The DC Swamp is full of (Democrat AND Republican) liars and cheaters, whose best interests are only with regard from themselves. I want the Swamp drained and am doing several things on my end to educate myself and others, but it’s hard to know who to trust. I definitely don’t trust K. McCarthy!

    If true, he should resign. We don’t need (although there seem to be many!) people like that in Congress!
