Madison Cawthorn is dishonest, posted a blatantly racist comment on a website, has been accused of being a “sexual predator” and can’t be trusted in a global pandemic to safeguard the health of the people of Western North Carolina.
Voters in North Carolina’s 11th, especially early voters on broadcast and cable, need to know the truth about Madison Cawthorn:
- Madison Cawthorn has been dishonest with voters about almost everything in his past. Cawthorn called himself the “CEO” of a real estate investment firm, but in reality, he just owned one vacant lot and reported no income from the company. And before that, he claimed he was accepted to the Naval Academy, but admitted under oath he was rejected. He claimed he was admitted to Harvard, Princeton, and other elite schools, but later said he never applied. (BACK UP)
- Madison Cawthorn posted a racist comment on an attack website called moetaxes.com. In criticizing Tom Fiedler, a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter who is covering this race for a local website, Cawthorn wrote that Fiedler, “quit his academia job in Boston to work for non-whites, like Cory Booker, who aims to ruin white males running for office.” Cawthorn earlier had to explain why he called a trip to Adolph Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest a “bucket list” item and referred reverentially to Hitler as the “Fuhrer.” (BACK UP)
- Cawthorn was accused of sexual aggressiveness in an article posted in a conservative website. Now his former classmates at Patrick Henry College have signed a letter asking voters in the 11th Congressional District not to support Madison Cawthorn, calling him a “sexual predator” who lied to them and vandalized property while attending the college. (BACK UP)
- Madison Cawthorn claimed coronavirus is overblown, saying it’s no worse than the seasonal flu. Even during a global pandemic and economic crisis, he wants to deny Medicaid even to people who lost their job through no fault of their own and remove protections for seniors and people with pre-existing conditions. (BACK UP)
We need leadership that puts country over party.
