Anti-Cawthorn group files new ethics complaint against the freshman GOP lawmaker

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), the 26-year-old freshman Republican lawmaker, has clearly triggered his opponents on the other side of the political aisle, as they continue to seize on a number of controversies the young congressman has found himself in over the past few months.

According to The Hill, in the wake of Cawthorn’s questionable promotion of a certain cryptocurrency and two instances of the lawmaker being caught with a loaded firearm at the airport, a political action committee seeking to unseat him has just filed a new round of ethics complaints. 

The complaint was filed by a group called American Muckrakers PAC, otherwise known on Capitol Hill as “Fire Madison,” with the Office of Congressional Ethics on Wednesday.

Additionally, the ethics complaints also focus on Cawthorn’s distant cousin, who he employs as his congressional office scheduler. Gifts given to the cousin, who also happens to be a close friend of Cawthorn’s, have also become the subject of ethics complaints against the Republican lawmaker.

Notably, the new round of complaints and negative public relations press comes just a handful of weeks before the North Carolina Republican Primary on May 17, where Cawthorn faces stiff competition for the seat.

Cawthorn believes the new round of complaints and bad headlines is nothing less than a coordinated attempt to smear him before the primary, calling the tactic “pathetic.”

“At least be consistent with your attack instead of changing the focus every time. A campaign based on nothing but slander and personal attacks is a campaign that lacks a true sense of how to save the country from the leftists,” the young lawmaker tweeted.

Only time will tell if the formal complaint gains any traction, but even if it doesn’t, the anti-Cawthorn group has already accomplished its mission of creating even more negative press in the lead-up to the May 17 primary and beyond.
