    A staffer who claims to have been fired by Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) claimed the young lawmaker did 'illegal' things to her and ripped him as a 'bad person' in leaked audio released on Monday.  Lisa Wiggins, who was a caseworker in Cawthorn's office, indicated she had filed an employment-related lawsuit against the Republican firebrand. In a leaked 16-minute phone call published by a political fundraising operation nicknamed 'Fire Madison Cawthorn,' the former staffer describes jaw-dropping conditions in the lawmaker's one North Carolina office -- and claims he closed the rest after neglecting to hire enough caseworkers to run them. Wiggins claimed she was not allowed to take leave from work when her husband suffered a heart attack and her uncle died in the span of a single week. 'What he’s done to me was illegal, morally wrong, you name it, it’s been done,' Wiggins said.  Without invoking Cawthorn's name, she also said, 'As far as the candidate himself, I mean, he’s just a bad person.  'He’s a habitual liar and he’s going to say and do anything he can...
    As many a Democrat would be, one politically savvy Dartmouth College student appeared to be jumping out of his seat when put in a room with Rep. Madison Cawthorn. A Republican, Cawthorn is a supporter of former President Donald Trump's who, like many others, has against all logic proclaimed that the election Trump loss to President Joe Biden was rigged. Jack Cocchiarella, digital director for Democrat Marcus Flowers' campaign for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's House seat, seemed to have applied great restraint in the encounter. The sheer audacity of Cawthorn to claim that anyone would have to rig an election to unseat a reality TV star who went on to lead an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol is low-hanging fruit. But Cocchiarella didn't go there. He asked Cawthorn outright: "I just got a quick question for you Congressman Cawthorn. A majority of Republicans believe that President Biden was not lawfully elected. Now you know that he was and that he won the 2020 election. So when will you stop lying to your constituents, admit that Donald Trump lost, and end...

    Republican lawmakers have struggled with former President Donald Trump’s false claim the 2020 election was stolen. Some have opted to dodge the question, conceding that Joe Biden is the current president but insisting there are “questions” about the way 2020 was carried out. Others are flat out insisting it was stolen, despite all evidence. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) is one of those lawmakers. This week, a Dartmouth College student and activist asked Cawthorn during a town hall: “A majority of Republicans believe that President Biden was not lawfully elected. Now you know that he was and that he won the 2020 election. So when will you stop lying to your constituents, admit that Donald Trump lost and end this senseless attack on our democracy?” Cawthorn replied by calling the election “unconstitutional.” He went on to explain: So as you can all see in Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, the only people who have a right to change election law in the United States of America, are the state legislatures. You saw in six key states, namely Wisconsin...

    Athletes have disputed Rep. Madison Cawthorn's claims he was training for the Paralympics, calling them a 'joke' and saying 'it's like a kid saying they want to play in the NBA when they're on their fourth-grade basketball team'.  Cawthorn, who was paralyzed from the waist down in a 2014 car crash, previously suggested in social media posts he was training to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. In a May 2020 podcast he also said: 'I had an opportunity for the Paralympics for track and field'.  But named Paralympic stars have cast doubt on these claims saying they had never met him, that some of the events he spoke about don't even exist in the athletic calendar and that his claims are regarded as a 'joke' among the Paralympic community.  Cawthorn's name is also not included in the International Paralympic Committee's list of athletes - a register of around 4,000 names that people must be on to be able to compete.   The North Carolina Republican has faced accusations of exaggerating his career credentials in the past, after a watchdog reported...
    Freshman Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn claimed he was armed the day rioters swarmed the Capitol, which would be a violation of House rules. Cawthorn told his local newspaper, The Smokey Mountain News, he was on the House floor when the mob broke into the building last Wednesday.  He evacuated with the other lawmakers, staff and journalists and said: 'Fortunately, I was armed, so we would have been able to protect ourselves.'

    The new security measures at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., were predictable. Also predictable, the response of pro-gun, pro-school metal detector conservatives whining about having to go through metal detectors. Many of the “freshman” representatives, like Republican Lauren Boebert of Colorado have been openly flaunting their gun carrying around the Capitol. They do this because they’re cowardly folks, with small ideas, fragile egos, and an inability to manage the rage they feel that Santa Claus didn’t turn them into the most popular people in the universe. Like Boebert, Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina is a special kind of terrible. A day after the insurrection on the Capitol building, Cawthorn told a newspaper that he had a gun on him, “Fortunately, I was armed, so we would have been able to protect ourselves.” While it is against the law for even permitted citizens to carry firearms on Capitol grounds, these officials are trying to stretch an old rule that allows members of Congress to keep guns in their office and carry them around “Capitol grounds.” Of course, even this rule does...
    A Democratic congressional in North Carolina recently called on his audience to “stomp” on the necks of Republican “extremists,” according to Twitter messages that resurfaced during a debate between candidates for the seat. “Screw they go low, we go high bullsh*t,” said the September 11, 2019 tweet by Moe Davis. “When @NCGOP extremists go low, we stomp their scrawny pasty necks with our heels and once you hear the sound of a crisp snap you grind your heel hard and twist it slowly side to side for good measure. He needs to know who whupped his ass.” Davis, a retired Air Force colonel who served as chief prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay from 2005-07, is running for the U.S. House in North Carolina’s 11th district. The tweet was one of several highlighted at debates between Davis and his Republican opponent, Madison Cawthorn, over the weekend. Other tweets showed Davis comparing Trump rallies to “Klan rallies” and “make American great again” hats to “new KKK hoods,” in addition to defending Gov. Ralph Northam (D) for old photos in which Northam said he...
