Dolly Madison?

He's handsome, he's buff (from the waist up, at least), and he's an "un-bought" republican. He's also a first term U.S. House rep from North Carolina. I am referring, of course, to Madison Cawthorn. He seems like an obvious choice for the purple state of NC, representing some of the red that makes up that purple.

He's a bit of a hot mess though, as recent stories show someone with a certain lack of judgement.

Most recently, he was caught at the airport with a loaded gun - and not for the first time:
Madison Cawthorn, a Republican congressman from North Carolina, was caught trying to go through security with a loaded gun at Charlotte Douglas International Airport Tuesday morning, according to multiple sources.

This was the second time the controversial congressman has been stopped trying to bring a weapon through airport security.


Individuals can face fines up to $13,000 for a second offense, according to TSA.
(bold-face mine)

He raised quite a few eyebrows a few weeks ago when he claimed he was invited to cocaine orgies by fellow republicans. This created an uproar in republican leadership circles, and he was forced to recant his story. It still leaves several question marks, because it certainly rings true considering that party is rife with hypocrisy.

One does have to wonder, though, why they would invite someone who may or may not have "working equipment" (don't know - don't want to know) to an orgy.

All of this is why the release of THIS pic adds some interesting color to the whole controversy:


He claims it was just a "goofy vacation photo", but maybe this is why he was invited to the parties, LOL.

He also seems to have no use for the laws of his state. For the second time, he was cited for driving with a suspended license:
North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn is facing a charge of driving with a revoked license for the second time since 2017.

The Class 3 misdemeanor charge, which could carry a maximum penalty of up to 20 days in jail, is one of three pending traffic citations against the Republican congressman in his home state.


According to Bethea and court calendars, the 26-year-old congressman also faces two additional charges of speeding issued by the NCHP in separate incidents in different counties.

On October 18, 2021, according to a synopsis provided by Bethea, Cawthorn was pulled over in Buncombe County in a 2009 white Dodge for “driving 89 mph in a 65-mph zone.” Court records list his court date for that violation as May 3.

And on January 8, 2022, the congressman was pulled over in a 2009 Dodge by state highway patrol in Polk County. Bethea told CNN that Cawthorn was cited for “driving 87 mph in a 70-mph zone.” He has an April 18 court date.

Per the article, it's unknown why his license has been suspended. Taken in totality with everything else we know about him, we get the image of an irresponsible, immature partier in a position of power for which he doesn't possess the necessary gravitas.

North Carolina: do better.
