GOP Rep Madison Cawthorn Likens DC Social Life to 'House of Cards' with Orgies and Rampant Drug Use

Tuesday March 29, 2022

DC pols get many different kinds of invitations to events, but to an orgy? That's what GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn is claiming in an interview with the Warrior Poet Society, the Daily Mail reports. He said that the sexual behavior and drug use in the nation's capital rival that of what was seen on Netflix's "House of Cards," specifically its elements of "corruption, power, money and perversion." 

"The sexual perversion that goes on in Washington ... being kind of a young guy in Washington where the average age is probably 60 or 70, I look at all these people — a lot of them who I've looked up to throughout my life ... then all of a sudden you get invited to like, 'well hey we're going to have kind of a sexual get together at one of our homes. You should come,' like, what did you just ask me to come to? And then you realize they're asking you to come to an orgy." 

The 26-year old North Carolina congressman added that drug use was also prevalent. "'There's some of the people that are leading the movement to try and remove addiction in our country and then you watch them doing, you know, a key bump of cocaine in front of you and it's like wow, this is wild."

But which pols is he addressing? "The young congressman, a staunch conservative not known for his friends across the aisle, is seemingly accusing his fellow Republicans of the illicit behavior," reports the Daily Mail.

But while he didn't name any Republican politicians, he did recently cross he aisle to accuse Nancy Pelosi of being an alcoholic.

"Cawthorn said of the California Democrat at a campaign event," the Daily Mail adds. "I'll tell you I have to work with her every single day so please do pray for me. The theories of alcoholism are very true and it's very sad," he said, according to video posted by Patriot Takes.

The Daily Mail fact-checked Cawthorn's remake and writes "Pelosi, 81, doesn't drink, and hasn't for years. Her daughter Christine attacked prior slurs about her mom's alleged alcoholism in 2019, tweeting: 'Republicans and their conservative allies have been pumping this despicable fake meme for years! Now they are caught. #FactCheck: Madam Speaker doesn't even drink alcohol!.' "

Last month a video surfaced of Cawthorn "calling Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky a 'thug'. He said his government was 'corrupt, incredibly evil' and 'pushing woke ideologies'.

"He appeared to be discussing the US sending military aid to Ukraine before lashing out at leaders in Kyiv — who refused to flee the country despite reports that many are on a Russian 'kill list' including Zelensky and his family," writes the DM.

Amid his charges against various politicians, Cawthorn is in the process of divorcing his wife of eight months, CrossFit athlete wife Cristina Bayardelle, citing the lifestyle changes the couple experienced when he was elected to Congress.

"When Cristina and I were engaged, I was not a member of Congress. I felt called to serve and we both agreed that I should run. Our victory was unprecedented, but overnight our lives changed," he said in a statement posted by his spokesman.
"That change has been both hectic and difficult, it's neither the pace nor the lifestyle we had planned for."
