(Headline USA) Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., alleged last week that U.S. lawmakers regularly engage in explicit and illegal activities, saying some have invited him to a sex party while others have done cocaine right in front of him.
Cawthorn made the comment during an interview with the “Warrior Society” podcast after he was asked what being a U.S. politician is like and whether it is really as corrupt as some fictitious shows, such as “House of Cards,” have made it out to be.
“The only thing that isn’t accurate about that show is that you could never get a piece of legislation about education passed that quickly,” Cawthorn responded in reference to the popular Netflix show.
The first-term congressman said a lot of the people who he has “looked up to through my life” fill their personal lives with “sexual perversions” that voters would be shocked by.
“Then all of the sudden you get invited to, ‘Well hey, we’re going to have kind of a sexual get together at one of our homes, you should come,’” he recalled. “I’m like, ‘What did you just ask me to come to?’ And then you realize they are asking you to come to an orgy.”
He also claimed a number of lawmakers “leading” anti-addiction efforts have done hard drugs in front of him.
“Or the fact that, you know, some of the people that are leading on the movement to try and remove addiction in our country and then you watch them do, you know, a key bump of cocaine right in front of you and it’s like, wow, this is wild,” he said.
Cawthorn has come out as one of the Republican Party’s youngest firebrands, leading Democrats to try and kick him off the ballot to prevent him from running for reelection. Their efforts, however, failed, and several polls show that Cawthorn has a comfortable lead that could land him back in Congress for a second term.
