“North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn has sued to block efforts by voters seeking to prevent him from running for Congress this year because of his involvement in the January 6, 2021 rally that preceded the U.S. Capitol riot,” reported the Associated Press, and then I laughed for two solid minutes. I mean, when your own constituents take legal steps to prevent you from running again, maybe read the room, Maddy.
The AP reports: “The voters’ protest, initiated last month with the help of a national election and campaign finance reform group, is likely to be the first of similar candidate challenges in other states against members of Congress associated with the insurrection. The 14th Amendment says, in part, that no one can serve in Congress “who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress … to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same.” As Eleanor Shellstrop would say, “YA BURNT!”We’re written extensively about Qawthorn here (I like to call him “Rolf 2.0” sometimes too) and for him to say out loud that he’s “never engaged in insurrection” when we all know he has (come on, Maddy, we have eyes, plus you said last month in an interview that you “stand by your actions on January 6th”, which included your objection to the certifications of the presidential election, which was won by Joe Biden, so shhh) and he’s going to bully the voters of North Carolina into letting him run again. Because that’s how Daddy Trump does things, and that’s who Maddy’s learning from these days, I guess in an effort to supplant Don Jr when he goes to prison for his sister or something.
In the past few days, Trump admits he lost and tried to overturn the 2020 election and Madison Cawthorn admits the government was deeply involved with Jan. 6.

Defeating Madison Cawthorn is bigger than just flipping a seat.
It’s about defending our democracy in 2022 and beyond.

You’ve seen “The Sound of Music,” right? I’m predicting things won’t go well for Rolf 2.0, neither.
I agree with Madison @CawthornforNC for a change.
He was deeply involved in January 6. https://t.co/2OmY0AX0M5
