Graphic video shows Rep. Cawthorn in compromising scene


Yet another video that apparently shows Republican congresswoman Madison Cawthorn from western North Carolina in a compromising situation has surfaced, according to a story first reported last night by The News & Observer.

The story cites the American Muckrakers PAC, better known as, as the source of the video.

A statement on says the video was sent to PAC by a former fan “who asked to remain anonymous.”

The PAC ruthlessly hounded Cawthorn with ethics complaints, leaked whistleblower audio, and other complaints shortly after Cawthorn was elected.

In the video, which appears to have been shot in a hotel room, a man who appears to be Cawthorn is seen in a state of undress grinding on another person while letting out an exaggerated series of grunts and moans. The other person is only seen for a moment and has not yet been identified.

Others in the room laugh as the unsafe video for work continues, until finally someone off camera calls the naked man “Madison” and asks him to stop.

David B. Wheeler, President of PAC, posted the following statement on the website:

“Madison Cawthorn is expected to resign from Congress today. While her sexual orientation or behavior behind closed doors is of no concern to us, her actions should have consequences. This video was forwarded to us by a former supporter and major donor to Rep. Cawthorn who wishes to remain anonymous. Only Madison Cawthorn knows the date, location, names and ages of the attendees, or if they are Cawthorn staff. Ask her for this information. We do not know these details. We know Rep. Cawthorn shouldn’t be in Congress regardless of when this video was taken, and we have no further comment at this time.

Cawthorn acknowledged the authenticity of the video in a tweet, but did not provide information on where, when or by whom the video was shot.

“A new blow against me has just fallen.” hawthorn wrote. “Years ago in this video I was being rude to a friend, trying to be funny. We were messing around and joking. That’s it. I’m NOT backing down. I told you that there would be a drip campaign. Blackmail won’t win. We will.”

North Carolina’s primary election is Tuesday, May 17, though in-person early voting is nearly halfway through. Cawthorn faces a group of seven Republican challengers. If no candidate obtains more than 30% of the votes, a second round between the first two will take place on Tuesday 26 July.

Six Democrats are also vying for the right to face the Republican nominee in November.
