Madison Cawthorn is happy to tell people that he’s a Christian and a great guy. Many who have come into contact with the young Republican congressman, however, disagree. A number of students who attended Patrick Henry College with Cawthorn told Buzzfeed that he was a major problem on campus.And now, a staffer who worked with the GOP lawmaker has come out strongly against him. According to former campaign aide Lisa Wiggins, he’s just not a good guy.
Wiggins has filed a complaint against her former boss, saying that she was not given leave for a family emergency. She told David Wheeler, “What he’s done to me was illegal, morally wrong, you name it, it’s been done. He’s a habitual liar and he’s going to say and do anything he can to your face but behind your back he’s completely opposite.”
The former staffer continued, “he is just a bad person. People need to know how this man really is…He’s still got a lot of people fooled.”
Wiggins also said that the lawmaker doesn’t care about his constituents, closing:
“If you come from Cherokee County you’re driving five hours to see your congressman. But you can’t see your congressman anyway when you go to the office. There’s no way you can get a meeting with him unless he’s trying to pull some votes and that’s about the only way. The ultimate goal of course is to get him out. I’m working harder here than I did for his campaign two years ago, and I mean, I worked really hard two years ago.”
